Munich-based hotelier Ruby Group has revealed plans to open a new project in Stuttgart in the spring of 2023. The announcement follows the February 2020 opening of Ruby Lucy in London, the group’s maiden property outside of Germany.
For the first time, Ruby will be combining its Lean Luxury’ philosophy for a hotel and a coworking space under one roof. The Ruby Hotel with 150 guest rooms and Ruby Works covering an area of 1,700 square metres (approx. 190 workstations) will take over the top floor of the city shopping mall. The Gerber mall’s central location in the city centre, within walking distance of the town hall square, combined with its attractive industrial style with high, open ceilings and exposed concrete, is an ideal urban location for Ruby in Stuttgart.
It is the second time a Ruby Hotel has been integrated into a shopping mall.
“As a conversion of former retail space right in the heart of the city, the Gerber project represents a groundbreaking milestone for us. We have created completely new room types for this project adapted to the challenging floor layouts. The excellent location, high ceilings and unusual style of the building are a perfect match for our lean luxury philosophy and the project, therefore, represents an attractive new addition to the Stuttgart hotel market,” said Michael Patrick Struck, CEO and Founder of Ruby Group.
Founded in 2013, Ruby Group already operates eight Ruby hotels, with 17 additional hotels either under construction or in the planning phase of construction.
