Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc celebrates first anniversary of its opening. The Clarion, the 9th hotel of its brand operated by CPI Hotels, opened its gates to the first guests in September 2013. Its full operation was preceded by more than a 2-year complete reconstruction of the Sigma Hotel during which the hotel was rebuilt into a 4-star standard of the Clarion brand with its 126 rooms, congress facilities for up to 1,400 delegates, restaurant Benada and a wellness centre.
"We have been successful in gaining important clients from the very beginning and in hosting big congresses and social events; we have been profiled as a quality congress hotel with comfortable accommodation and excellent gastronomy. Since the new school year has started, I dare evaluate our last year with an A grade," said Hotel Director Robin Hanák.
During its short-term operation the Clarion Olomouc has accommodated a number of celebrities; we could mention for example the complete Czech football team, footballers of Prague AC Sparta, well-known personalities of cultural life or president Miloš Zeman with the first lady during their official visit to the Olomouc region. "We would like to say thank you not only to our guests and clients who have visited us, but also to all staff of the Clarion Congress Hotel who have taken personal care of our guests with great commitment. Thanks to them we can succeed in meeting the high expectations of our clients and they are happy to come back to our hotel," added Robin Hanák.
The main advantage of conference premises with a capacity of its congress hall of 1,100 delegates and 4 small lounges is its variability, providing space for various types of events; the hotel also served as a venue of the prestigious international tournament in boxing Czech Open 2013, International Cat Show, National Congress of the ODS, gala evening High School Miss Olomouc and several other professional conferences and social events. The Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc does not forget about its social responsibility either. Within the framework of its CSR activities the hotel joined a project called Day for Mum in support of women taking care of their children with disabilities; within its long-term cooperation with a nonprofit organisation Chance 4 Children it has hosted an event from the cycle "Baking with Clarion" for children from children's homes and taken part in the campaign Every Czech Reads to Kids.
¨The 4-star Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc is situated near the train and bus station within walking distance of the historical centre of Olomouc. It offers accommodation in its 126 comfortable rooms including the Business Executive Suite with a bedroom, living room and a conference lounge. Congress premises with a capacity of up to 1,400 delegates represent the largest conference facility in Olomouc region. Another part of the hotel is the restaurant Benada with a capacity of 100 seats, famous for its specialities of Czech and international cuisine and wide variety of quality Moravian and world wines. There is a wellness centre with a whirlpool, Finnish spa and steam, cardio zone and Beer Spa BBB, available not only to hotel guests. The Clarion Congress Hotel Olomouc was opened after its reconstruction in 2013 as the 9th of Clarion Hotels operated by CPI Hotels, the exclusive representative of the international chain Choice Hotel International for the Clarion brand in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
