Yotel to Land in Lisbon World Trade Center

United Kingdom, London. June 08, 2022

YOTEL, a global hospitality brand appealing to those looking for a different hotel experience through smart design and the creative use of technology, announced a new YOTEL in Lisbon to open in 2024.The new property will form part of the Foz Vintage Group's spectacular World Trade Center development slated to be Portugal's most innovative and disruptive Business Park.

The 127 room YOTEL Lisbon WTC will be located within the World Trade Center Lisboa, minutes away from Lisbon city center, a short drive from the beaches in Cascais, and adjacent to Monsanto, the largest green area in the region. The campus, totaling over 35,000 SQM, will also include office, retail, and recreational facilities with the ethos of promoting physical and emotional well-being through clever accessible, and sustainable solutions. Like YOTEL, the Center has been designed with flexible, adaptable, evolving spaces, encouraging collaboration, networking, and productivity by delivering comfort and time-saving technology. YOTEL will join other major corporations based in the development, including Worten, Bayer, and Helm.

WTC Lisbon is part of the World Trade Center network, the world's largest business, and investment platform, spanning 322 cities across 90 countries. YOTEL Lisbon WTC will be the first of two YOTEL properties to be part of the international WTC ecosystem, with the second to be announced later this year.

"Lisbon has always been a priority for YOTEL's expansion, particularly following the opening of YOTEL Porto last year," said Rohan Thakkar, Chief Development Officer, YOTEL. "We are delighted to have signed a long-term management agreement with Foz Vintage, a group that defines its projects on innovation, the environment, and its people, the same values which we embrace at YOTEL. YOTEL Lisbon WTC will further our expansion strategy across Southern Europe, both within Portugal and nearby markets such as Spain and France."

According to Vasco Fonseca, COO of the FVC Group, "YOTEL offers a concept perfectly aligned with our vision at WTC Lisbon, which gives priority, above all, to innovation and technology, sustainability and people's well-being. YOTEL's spaces are designed to create a unique experience for each stay, able to engage and connect guests. Its auditorium will also serve as a stage for major events, in particular, to receive the schedule that we foresee for the WTC Business Club, which aims to be a space of choice for business networking and for the discussion of strategic themes for companies and projects, nationally and internationally."

The hotel will feature a restaurant, event space, and a panoramic rooftop bar, all catering to both local office workers and in-house guests, alongside a Grab+Go, co-working areas, and a 24/7 fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment. The hotel will be the ideal accommodation for people visiting and working in the WTC or one of the other nine business parks located within a three-kilometer radius.

YOTEL currently operates 19 hotels around the globe and has another 13 under development, with a YOTEL /YOTELPAD property opening in Miami in May and YOTEL Geneva Lake opening later this year.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient

In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
