THE CHARLES HOTEL CELEBRATES ITS 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Munich, June 2017. There is the sound of celebration at The Charles Hotel, the Rocco Forte Hotel in Munich. Ten years have passed since the hotel opened its doors in the heart of the city. To mark the occasion, the festivity will welcome the people of Munich to an open house on October 8th 2017 during the birthday weekend, as well as exciting surprises every month throughout the year – each alluding to the “10 Year” celebration.  

10 Years of the Extraordinary
The Charles Hotel has been known to fulfil unusual requests for guests, which explains the numerous extraordinary anecdotes and stories that have arisen over the last ten years. Whether it’s a racehorse, a hunting dog or even two hunting falcons – employees of The Charles Hotel will promptly organise almost anything for their guests. Even the shipment of twenty dairy goats, native to the Bavarian mountains, to Dubai was successfully enabled. There is definitely a reason why the maxim “The guest is king” is the first guiding principle of The Charles Hotel. Organising a private visit to Munich's Hellabrunn Zoo, receiving a guest with 396 suitcases or outfitting a room with a golf cage for achieving the perfect drive are just some of the amusing facts that can be added to the list of unusual requests the team have fulfilled. 

The Charles Hotel does not only impress with its exceptional service, but also in matters of the heart. Thirty-two marriage proposals have been made and over 10,000 red roses have been given as gifts.  

10 Culinary Journeys
To celebrate its anniversary year The Charles Hotel has come up with some surprises for guests. Sophia's Restaurant & Bar will be hosting celebrations all year long enabling guests to immerse themselves in fantastic set menus, fine wines and cocktail creations across 10 different culinary journeys.  

10 Exquisite Experiences
Guests who desire to experience something special with The Charles Hotel can look forward to a unique overnight stay. Along with 10 exquisite experiences, including a personal butler, a caviar breakfast, a carriage ride through the English Garden and a 24-carat gold treatment in the Charles Spa, the two-night stay in the Royal Suite Monforte will become an unforgettable memory. 

Beyond that, the hotel would like to thank its guests for their loyalty, with the Charles Anniversary Tombola offering 10 lotteries throughout the year with sensational prizes worth a total value of nearly EUR 30.000, including a table in the popular Hofbräu tent during Oktoberfest.  

Frank Heller, General Manager of the 5-star superior The Charles Hotel and as of May 2017 new Regional Director Germany for Rocco Forte Hotels, is thrilled: “A lot has changed since we welcomed our first guests in 2007. We are particularly proud of what we have achieved together as a team along with our partners in the last ten years. This ambitious goal drives us to continue along our path and to write many more chapters in the success story of The Charles Hotel.”
