Located in the heart of Luxembourg’s capital, what differentiates Le Royal Luxembourg from other hotels is its tailor-made service. Philippe Scheffer, the hotel’s manager for the past 27 years, says: “If a guest asks for something, we will provide it. Our service differentiates us – we have almost one member of staff per room, and we’re able to accommodate the smallest or largest requests.” So whether that means finding a delicacy from the guest’s home country or providing other home comforts, Le Royal Luxembourg strives to make guests happy. This full-service hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the capital and hosts everyone from business and leisure travellers, to artists and politicians. Although its name conjures up images of an 18th century palace, Le Royal Luxembourg is in fact a modern, sleek hotel with elegant furnishings, high-quality dining options, business conference services and spa and fitness facilities. Its 209 refurbished rooms offer the highest level of comfort, with marble bathrooms stocked with luxurious Hermès toiletries, 86 | Issue 31 | July 2016

air conditioning and workspaces for business travellers. All rooms have highspeed wireless internet, a smart TV, mineral water and complimentary health club access. For health-conscious guests or for a moment of calm, the Club Santé boasts a heated indoor pool, sauna, hammam, solarium and a fitness room. Spa treatments and a beauty salon for men and women are available. It offers indulgent massages, hydrating facials and anti-aging and purifying treatments. The hotel has two top restaurants, La Pomme Cannelle and Amélys, as well as a magnificent live music bar. La Pomme Cannelle serves high-end innovative French cuisine and the décor “takes you out of Luxembourg and transports you around the world”, according to Mr. Scheffer. The new Amélys is open all day and night: the chef cooks with fresh, seasonal products and the menu has a wide choice of options. Piano Bar has live music every night, with different singers and pianists daily. Its barman is a mixology specialist, creating superb cocktails for guests. It also has a ventilated cigar lounge for smokers.

Le Royal Luxembourg has full conferencing facilities for up to 1,000 people, with ten conference rooms. It also hosts cocktail parties and other events and offers a catering service for events taking place outside of the hotel such as weddings. Underground parking is available at the hotel. www.leroyalluxembourg.com
