Check In to Conrad Hotels & Resorts and Check Out Inspired Destinations

Del

Coming off a successful launch in 2015, Conrad Hotels & ResortsStay Inspired initiative has expanded with a series of exclusive and limited time only events and offerings for global luxury travelers. Honoring the brand’s deep commitment to connecting guests with local culture through thoughtfully curated 1, 3 and 5-hour itineraries at all 26 Conrad hotels, the new Stay Inspired programming will include a personalized in-room “Experiences Menu” at select hotels, globally sourced beverage menus in hotel bars and lounges, and locally inspired marketplace events held in Conrad properties around the world beginning this October.

“As Conrad Hotels & Resorts continues to grow its extensive portfolio, we have become even more committed to strengthening our guests’ relationships with each destination,” said John Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts. “The new elements of Stay Inspired allow visitors to experience the wonders of these cities within the hotel and provide accessible excursions that can be booked at a moment’s notice.”

Under the guidance of Peter Jon Lindberg, Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ Director of Inspiration and a respected, award-wining travel journalist, the Stay Inspired initiative makes it easy for guests to explore their surroundings from a true local’s point of view. From harvesting oysters on the Algarve coast in Portugal to making soba noodles taught by a soba master in Tokyo, the Conrad 1/3/5 itineraries urge guests to immerse themselves in a destination with hyper-authentic activities tailored to their personal interests and time available.

“Conrad Hotels & Resorts has done a remarkable job of satisfying its guests’ wanderlust through unique, ‘only-here’ experiences that connect them with local culture,” said Lindberg. “As we enhance the Stay Inspired program with these new on-property offerings, we want to engage our guests from the moment they arrive, and spark their curiosity when visiting a new destination.”

Ordering a Conrad 1/3/5

Understanding that time is the ultimate luxury, Conrad Hotels & Resorts will make it even easier for travelers to plan a Conrad 1/3/5 experience from the comforts of their guestrooms. In October, select Conrad properties will offer guests the added convenience of booking one or more 1/3/5 activities directly from a printed in-room menu. Similar to ordering in-room dining, guests can simply check off the activities they want to experience during their stay and place the menu on the door for the hotel’s concierge to arrange. Each activity on the Stay Inspired experience menu is unique to the destination and organized into 1, 3, and 5-hour excursions based on the guest’s preference.

Inspired Drinks Menus

Guests can now embark on a spirited journey to some of Conrad Hotels & Resorts’ most distinctive destinations with the new Inspired Drinks bar menus. Available at select properties, the Inspired Drinks menu shakes up the standard happy hour with unique, hand-crafted cocktails curated from select Conrad hotels.

Guests can sip Conrad London St. James’s Travellers’ Inspiration, a twist on the traditional martini with lychee liquor, elderflower syrup and a splash of lemon juice, creating a delicate balance of sweet and sour. Try Conrad Cairo’s Oak Beirut Fizz, a mix of traditional Middle Eastern liquor Arak with playful pomegranate juice and orange slices. For a taste of Conrad Macao, the Healthy Buddha provides a daily dose of Vitamin A and C, along with a splash of vodka. While basking in the sun at Conrad Maldives, indulge in a Rangali Stormy, featuring spiced rum and house made ginger beer served in a Tiki mug.

The limited time only libations also include the classic Prosecco & Ice Pop from Conrad New York, and all will find their way on to bar menus across the Conrad Hotels & Resorts portfolio from October to December. Follow @ConradHotels on Instagram or Facebook to source and share signature recipes from the Inspired Drinks menu.

Conrad 1/3/5 Marketplace

Conrad will bring a popular guest marketplace concept to dynamic destinations such as Conrad Dublin, Conrad Miami, and Conrad Beijing, bringing the Conrad 1/3/5 experiences to life within the hotel. Select Conrad properties will host exclusive, day-long marketplace events where local vendors, who partner with Conrad for its 1/3/5 experiences, are invited to interact with guests, showcasing their crafts, entertaining with live music and leading hands-on tutorials – ranging from jewelry-making to whiskey distillery presentations. Access the marketplace schedule on the Conrad Hotels & Resorts Facebook Events page.
