Starwood has added the Hotel Des Indes to its Luxury Collection portfolio of hotels and resorts. The 92-room hotel, recently renovated by world-renowned architect Jacques Garcia, is located in The Hague, the Netherlands, overlooking the city's main square, the Lange Voorhout. Originally built as a town palace, Hotel Des Indes opened its doors as a luxury hotel in 1881 and has played host to kings, heads of state, aristocrats and celebrities.

"This landmark hotel is the perfect addition to the Luxury Collection portfolio in The Netherlands," said Roeland Vos, President, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Starwood Hotels and Resorts. "The Hague is an exceptional destination for a luxury property and the landmark hotel fits perfectly in one of the world's most refined collections of premium hotels and resorts. Global travellers can expect to explore The Hague in its indigenous spirit and experience service in an exceptionally personal manner."

The hotel underwent an extensive EUR 35 million renovation by world-renowned architect Jacques Garcia in 2006 to restore the original splendour of the 92 guest rooms, suites and public areas. Garcia's other work includes the design of Hotel Costes in Paris, and the Hotel des Beaux-Arts, and Le Rivoli-Notre Dame in the same city. In the United States, his projects include the Hotel Victor in South Beach and Jean-Georges Vongerichten's highly touted Spice Market.

State-of-the-art meeting facilities meet old-world grandeur at Hotel Des Indes. The hotel features ten elegant salons, boasting refined amenities for events, social functions, meetings or seminars, and can seat up to 80 guests.

The Hotel Des Indes also features a luxurious 315 square metre Health Club, where personal trainers provide guidance and advice upon request. A swim can be enjoyed in the indoor heated swimming pool, followed by a steam bath, sauna, or time in the solarium. In addition spa treatments and massages, using luxury Payot products, are available to enhance well-being and relaxation.

Since 1881, the exquisite Restaurant-Lounge-Bar Des InDes has welcomed royalty, world leaders and artists from around the globe. Today, that tradition lives on in Executive Chef Ben Hardeman's delectable epicurean creations. Hardeman trained in the three Michelin starred "Im Schiffchen" in Dusseldorf and collaborated with Parisian Chef Michel Rostang to create the innovative menu offered in the hotel's restaurant, lounge and bar.
