Hyatt Hotels Corporation has introduced the Unbound Collection to the German-speaking market for the first time with the re-badging of Düsseldorf’s The Wellem.
The hotel was previously operated under the Hyatt House brand.
The 102-room and -suite property, now identified as The Wellem, part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, is positioned in the heart of the historic Andreas Quarter, just a few minutes’ walking distance from the shopping boulevard, Königsallee, and the Rhine river.
The structure, built in 1913, was originally a courthouse and home to significant historical events of the 20th century. The building has been pristinely preserved, now creating a thought-provoking environment for guests.
Arts & Culture
The property is named after Jan Wellem, who together with his wife Anna Maria Luisa of the House of Medici, pushed Düsseldorf to become the centre of culture and fine arts that it is today.
In the spirit of its namesake, The Wellem is home to an impressive collection of contemporary art displayed throughout the property and within guest suites. The collection includes works from internationally renowned artists such as Jeff Koons, HA Schult, and Julian Schnabel. Guests have access to the hotel’s exclusive private Art Concierge, who can introduce guests to the masterpieces on display within the property and also offer tours at the nearby museums and art galleries, including the K20 art collection and the Arts Academy of the city of Düsseldorf.
Each guestroom has separate sleeping and living sections, with the exclusive fifth-floor art suites offering access to the rooftop terrace. The hotel features three restaurants where guests can enjoy some of Germany’s culinary highlights or indulge in the tastes and flavours of the Mediterranean.
Member properties of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt are independently operated. Each gives guests the freedom to create their own unique experiences at remarkable properties around the world, whether it’s a historic gem tucked in the heart of Paris, like Hôtel du Louvre, or a spectacular architectural monument such as Párisi Udvar Hotel Budapest. Additional properties within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in Europe include Hôtel Martinez in Cannes, Hôtel du Palais Biarritz and Great Scotland Yard Hotel in London.
