The new Steigenberg Hotel Munich is set to open up in the Bavarian capital in December of this year, and with it comes the appointment of Munich-native Thomas Fischer as general manager.
Before joining the Steigenberg Hotel, Fischer held the position as general manager of Corinthia Hotels & Resorts in London and Budapest. He has also served as the general manager of Kempinski Hotels & Resorts in cities such as Frankfurt and Moscow.
Steigenberg Hotel COO Thomas Willms believes that under Fischer’s leadership, the hotel will experience great success. Willms, in part, attributes this to Fischer’s familiarity of the city as a native. He believes Fischer will show “a wealth of experience in the international hotel sector” going forward.
Fischer received his Master’s degree in business administration from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, having completed the university’s “General Manager Program.”
The Steigenberg Hotel is one of 56 managed under the umbrella of Deutsche Hospitality, which also owns Jaz in the City, located in Amsterdam and Sousse, as well as Intercity Hotel, which has locations in 39 cities across the globe. Deutsche Hospitality currently owns 130 hotels over three continents.
With the Steigenberg Hotel opening in Munich, the Deutsche Hospitality brand plans to “strengthen its presence on the domestic market,” according to a written release. The hotel will offer 292 rooms and suites along with a bar, complete with a fireplace, as well as a restaurant serving up regional and international cuisine. Guests will also find amenities such as a gym and health and beauty spa facility.
