Corinthia Alfa Hotel in Lisbon renamed as Corinthia Lisboa Hotel

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 7 June 2006

The Corinthia Group affiliated International Hotel Investments (IHI), a public company based in Malta, with hotel investments in Budapest, Lisbon, Malta, and St Petersburg, has renamed the five-star Corinthia Alfa Hotel in Lisbon as the Corinthia Lisboa Hotel.

Following extensive renovation work in 2004, the 24-story Corinthia Alfa Hotel emerged as the newest five-star hotel in the city. The hotel has 517 rooms and suites and 3,000m2 allocated to state-of-the-art meeting facilities, with 17 meeting and syndicate rooms, the largest of which houses up to 750 delegates in theatre style. This makes Corinthia Alfa one of the largest conference hotels in Lisbon, able to handle 1,400 delegates at any given time, supported by a 24th floor Executive Lounge affording views of Lisbon, complete with boardrooms, executive check-in and business facilities. All the hotels communal areas have wireless Internet access.

Announcing the name change, Corinthia Lisboa general manager Jose Luiz Moreira said The property has been operating as the Corinthia Alfa Hotel ever since IHI took it over in 2001. The retention of the name Alfa enabled us to capitalize on the market's awareness and knowledge of the original Alfa Hotel that had served the Lisbon market for many years. However, since its re-opening last year with a vastly improved product that firmly established it as one of the leading 5-star hotels in the Lisbon market, we firmly believe it is now time for the respected Corinthia trade name to feature prominently alongside that of the great city it serves, hence Corinthia Lisboa.

Located in the heart of Lisbons financial district, the Corinthia Lisboa hotel is within close distance to the historical city centre, as well as being very close to the magnificent Estoril coastline.

IHI is a public company based in Malta with hotel investments in Lisbon, Malta, Budapest and St Petersburg. The Companys hotels are operated by Corinthia Hotels International, an associate company of IHI that operates 20 four and five-star city and resort hotels in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Libya, Malta, Portugal, Russia, The Gambia, Togo, Tunisia and Turkey.
