亞洲首間 台北東區新地標 金普頓大安酒店正式開幕 國際設計巨擘 如恩設計研究室 意寫台北巷弄 繁華靜謐 發自內心的個性化服務 寵物友善 金普頓大安六大獨特體驗公佈

IHG洲際酒店集團旗下精品酒店品牌金普頓®酒店及餐廳(Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants®),首次拓展登陸亞洲,第一站便選址台北東區開立亞洲第一間-金普頓大安酒店Kimpton Da An Hotel,特別邀請正在海外拍攝電影新作的氣質女星-張鈞甯擔任開幕大使,於3月21日舉辦金普頓大安酒店開幕記者會,正式宣告這個令全亞洲時尚設計圈期待已久的精品設計酒店品牌到來。

延續設計為先的品牌精神,金普頓大安酒店邀請國際級華人設計圈的巨擘如恩設計研究室Neri & Hu親自操刀,以台北摩登又保有傳統、慢活又充滿活力的獨特性,要讓旅客在熙攘人往的台北街頭,一踏入位於巷弄內的金普頓大安酒店,則即刻可感受一切喧鬧拋諸腦後的蒼鬱靜謐。金普頓大安酒店共設有5種房型129間房,於酒店的十二樓更設有曾受紐約時報譽為最能定義現代摩登料理James Sharman所領軍的摩登創意料理餐廳-The Tavernist,將把國際級精品酒店風格帶給旅客絕然不同的饗宴,更可證明金普頓酒店及餐廳對餐飲的投注力。

金普頓大安酒店總經理林原衛表示:「籌備亞洲第一間金普頓是一趟很有趣的旅程,如何將金普頓精神完整帶來亞洲,並帶領旅客認識美國西岸風格的精品酒店與人性化服務 (Ridiculously Personal Experience),將是我們的首要目標。」

金普頓®酒店設計為先 如恩設計研究室首次操刀

意寫台北巷弄 城市中的靜謐方舟 打造東區品味新指標

金普頓®酒店及餐廳創立於1981年,由精品酒店之父-比爾 金普頓Bill Kimpton創立,全世界的金普頓酒店皆以卓越獨特的設計為先風格(Design leadership),以及員工發自內心的個性化服務(Ridiculously personal experience)為著名。此次首度跨足亞洲,特別與曾獲義大利The PLAN Award建築設計大獎年度總冠軍、EDIDA國際設計大獎年度設計師等殊榮的如恩設研究室Neri & Hu親自操刀合作,充分表現設計團隊以西方理性凝練亞洲元素的理念,為金普頓®酒店及餐廳於台北建立品牌又一驚豔之作,從金普頓大安酒店的獨特logo即可看出設計師與品牌將台北大安區街頭巷弄融入酒店主題精神的象徵。如恩設計研究室Neri & Hu表示:「一個城市的精采就在小街小巷內,而當一個城市滿溢著我們的記憶,它才是活生生的。金普頓大安酒店的設計以台北街景為經,各式巷弄內的一磚一瓦為緯,融合西方理性與東方元素,交疊出酒店內與眾不同的簡約靜謐卻不失舒適氛圍。」以城市中的靜謐方舟做為設定,將設計師獨特東方寫意般的視角貫穿於整個酒店空間,從酒店的客廳(Living Room)開始,即可體會到設計師藉由自然光影與燭光、多層次挑高所呈現的台北意象,而酒店客房映入眼簾的蒼鬱翠綠,交錯各式金屬、黃銅、大理石與皮製材質,酌以大量白磚瓦,取意於台北都會房樓的縮影。而位於十二樓的The Tavernist餐廳空間,則採鮮明濃郁的色彩搭配縱直干欄以木桌腳接地的拱型門牆,詮釋多姿的台北街頭騎樓文化。

金普頓大安酒店隱身於仁愛路四段台北忠孝復興商圈,共備有5種房型、129間客房,以及位於十二樓能夠遠眺台北101美景的The Tavernist摩登創意料理餐廳。平均房價每晚新台幣7000-8000元起,鎖定奢華品味都會旅遊客群。

金普頓®無微不至的個性化體驗 體現正宗精品酒店精神

人本出發 六大服務特色 完美在地結合

金普頓大安酒店傳承著以人為本,重視人與人之間關聯的的品牌精神,將金普頓®酒店品牌的服務目標-為賓客創造「無微不至的個性化體驗Ridiculously Personal Experience」做了完美在地化的結合,此次隨著金普頓大安酒店的開幕,可看到六大金普頓式獨有的風格服務。

金普頓酒店個性化服務 Forgot it? We’ve got it!

「完全出乎你意料之外的貼心」是金普頓酒店力求為旅客提供的量身打造專屬服務,沒有公式化的SOP制式服務模式,每個員工被充分的訓練授權,從設身處地的角度關心每一位旅客,例如外頭下雨,在你還沒有開口就為你門口掛上雨傘、氣溫驟降為你貼心準備暖暖包。酒店亦推出了「Forgot it? We’ve got it」服務,無論賓客在旅途中臨時忘記帶了任何東西,從吹風機、指甲剪到電源充電線,只要金普頓員工做的到的,都能盡可能完成令旅客出乎意料的體驗感動服務!

重視人際互動 打造旅客的品酩時光 Social Evening Hour

「Social Evening Hour」是金普頓酒店的經典傳統。藉由晚餐前的休憩時間,拉近人與人之間的距離。金普頓大安酒店,在傍晚時刻-五點半到六點半,在酒店客廳(Lobby Living Room)提供招待的葡萄酒供旅客享用,另外金普頓大安還特別依季節準備特製調酒,如以楊桃汁或紅心芭樂為基底調酒,每晚在酒店的部門經理人的陪伴下,即使在旅途中旅客依然可以隨時獲得最溫暖的關懷。而對於初來乍到旅客,金普頓大安酒店更派出代表著金普頓精神的品牌大使Ms. K, our local expert,風趣具備在地知識將根據旅客需求,適時關心並提供旅行中台北在地資訊與建議,加深每一次與金普頓同在充滿人情味的時光。

與毛小孩共創回憶 寵物友善入住 Pet Friendly

金普頓®酒店及餐廳友善動物,自1992年即於全品牌推行「寵物樂園Pet Friendly」,而金普頓大安酒店也不例外。無論鴨子、浣熊甚至是羊駝,不限定種類並且可進入酒店電梯,則可攜帶毛小孩共同入住。而訂房預約時告知寵物類型,金普頓大安的員工還會貼心的準備招待寵物的小驚喜。


良心酒櫃Honor Bar與喚醒晨間活力Morning Kick Start

金普頓大安酒店Living Room中設有如自己私人酒吧的「良心酒櫃Honor Bar」,宛如良心商店的概念,是旅客24小時酒吧。吧檯中提供各式酒精、軟性飲料讓你自助、自付方式,讓臨時需要靈感的賓客,可以自由的在吧檯揮灑自己的創意,特調出一杯專屬於自己的調飲。而散坐在Living Room中的各式Neri & Hu的訂製家具,讓您睡前一杯也舒適愜意。

於早晨的時候,金普頓大安酒店的Living Room亦準備「Morning Kick Start喚醒晨間活力」的自助式飲料台,結合在地的飲食文化,這裡除了既定性自助的飲料之外,還會準備溫豆漿與穀物棒,讓早晨散步、出發會議的賓客,可以在大廳快速的喚起一天的活力。


金普頓酒店在意心身健康,自2003年起全世界的金普頓酒店便在客房中提供免費的瑜珈器具以及24小時的瑜珈頻道,金普頓大安酒店在台灣更與知名的瑜珈品牌Easyoga合作,供每位在旅途中的旅客時時保有健康的身心狀態。除此之外,酒店更採用台灣設計師手工打造質感腳踏車Gochic Bicycle,提供旅客在城市中有型騎乘於巷弄之間。
