Choose Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace for your Amazing Holiday!
Some hotel stays are utterly forgettable – decent food, standard sheets, middle-of-the-road location. But some, you’ll remember for the rest of your life. The host hotel of Glossy’s new issue has a history of almost 30 years and after a grand transformation, is returning with the highest standards and big plans – to be a “world gathering place”.
It was the year 1991. “Sheraton Metechi Palace” opened in Tbilisi – the first international hotel in Georgia and 5-star hotel in the whole of the Caucasus.
From 1991 to December 2014 there had probably been no Georgian or foreign journalist who hadn’t worked in the Sheraton’s lobby at one point or another. Sheraton Metechi Palace has been visited over the years by a whole host of high ranking guests; local and international conferences have been held here; business forums; workshops, etc.
Today, after a 4 year rehabilitation process, “Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace” continues its history under the ‘Grand’ status. This status has been granted thanks to the merit of its unique location, outstanding views, sophisticated design, distinguished cuisine, its own wellbeing facilities, and high services. In short, Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace hotel is everything you could expect from a hotel.
The interiors set the stage to appreciate the multifaceted Georgian tradition with the introduction and recurrence of decorative Georgian elements, and compliment the magnificent ambience in the ten-storey atrium area where guests are welcomed by an over dimensioned sofa element canopied with enormous lanterns. The lobby design is focused on encouraging guests to mingle through the interconnecting zones with their various terrace arrangements.
Historic weaving patterns and graphic abstractions of the Caucasus mountains were reinterpreted into modern carpet design, screen-print glass features and fin details, providing subtle and constant reference to the locality – and all of this the great work of Keith Wright, who specialises in the area of hospitality and hotel design, and Sonja Wright, interior designer.
In the renovated hotel there are 220 well-appointed rooms with contemporary design and suites, from which the amazing panorama of the historical part of Tbilisi is spread out. Each room is decorated with the exclusive works of Georgian photographers’ prints of the most beautiful parts of Georgia. With sophisticated, elegant interior design and the Sheraton’s signature sleep experience, every day spent in the hotel is doused in comfort. Each room is equipped with a flat screen TV and a Nespresso machine for maximal enjoyment. You can choose between 66 Deluxe King, 44 Deluxe Twin, 39 Executive King, 18 Executive Twin, 39 Club King, 4 Club Twin, 8 Executive, 1 Presidential and 1 Exclusive Royal suites, and enjoy your perfect stay in the historic downtown of Tbilisi.
The individual guestroom design with varying footprints creates an aspirational luxury experience with a singular contemporary look and feel. Natural materials complemented by rich fabrics and clean line furniture present guests with a warm and comforting welcome. Bathrooms have natural light by means of an internal window providing a special note of interaction.
The hotel can be proud of a variety of unique and healthy cuisines, offered in the diverse dining outlets.
