“We are thrilled to bring Hard Rock’s DNA into the sophisticated environs of Switzerland and the home of the World Economic Forum, Davos.” Dale Hipsh, Senior Vice President of Hard Rock Hotels
Transforming the 130-year-old building, Hard Rock Hotel Davos makes tribute to the building’s rich history and has been transformed into a luxury music-inspired alpine escape with priceless memorabilia adorning the walls of the property, two bars and the brand’s signature Sessions Restaurant. Curated by a team of experts, the memorabilia collection complements the local music scene while reflecting the region’s art, style and culture. Hard Rock Hotel Davos is now home to 65 pieces of memorabilia, with notable pieces including a sequin sweater by Michael Jackson, a lace outfit by Taylor Swift and a silk shirt by Elvis Presley.
Catering to both business and leisure travellers, Hard Rock Hotel Davos will have 110 lavishly redesigned rooms, including 31 serviced one to three bedroom apartments, all of which feature Sleep Like a Rock® bed linen.
Delectable food and beverage options are available across the property with the brand’s signature restaurant, Sessions, as well as two bars, including The 5th, the only rooftop bar in Davos with 360-degree views of the mountains. The menu at Sessions features regional specialities, such as Wild Boar Goulash and Iced Toblerone Mousse. GMT + 1 Bar will be the place to visit for new and interesting cocktail creations with a team of expert mixologists who are always in the lab inventing new concoctions. The hotel also boasts a trendy and stylish private dining room, The Studio.
In addition to three conference rooms offering dynamic meeting space, an on-site, historic chapel is also available for private hire, containing a modern sound system, natural acoustics, fully functioning organ and adaptable lighting, ideal for banquets, weddings, private concerts and events.
