The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc. (OTCQB:STKS) today announced that it signed a hospitality services agreement with Meliá Hotels International for the operation of an STK, a rooftop bar and food/beverage services at the new ME Milan Il Duca hotel.
Gabriel Escarrer, CEO and Vice Chairman of Meliá Hotels International, said, “We look forward to working with The ONE Group to continue to build on our successful relationship. The economic and industrial capital of Italy has been awaiting a hotel such as this. The ME by Meliá brand provides revered hotels for modern and discerning travellers, combining business and pleasure with authentic lifestyle experiences. Each ME Hotel is unique because of its design, its energy and its power to become a social epicentre. ME Milan will undoubtedly make a mark in the hotel, culinary and leisure offerings of the city.”
“We are very excited about this fantastic opportunity as this further builds our relationship with the Meliá Group and the ME by Meliá brand. We’ve successfully launched an STK and other food and beverage services at the ME London and we look forward to working with the Meliá organization to bring their guests a modern and high energy experience in Milan,” said Jonathan Segal, CEO of The ONE Group.
Meliá Hotels International, a leading hotel company, is launching its cutting edge, lifestyle brand ME by Meliá in Milan in 2015. ME by Meliá specializes in modern and high energy hotels at the heart of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world and will open its Milan doors near the famous “fashion quadrilateral” at the Piazza della Repubblica. The hotel will be close to the Corso Como, one of the chicest areas of the city.
The new ME Milan Il Duca, which will be housed in a building by renowned architect Aldo Rossi, will be completely renovated to the style of the late architect. It will have 132 rooms, including 34 suites - amongst which will be the signature penthouse “Suite ME” - Lounge-Bar and an STK restaurant, and ultra-modern conference rooms. The rooftop bar, another hallmark of ME Hotels, will be an impressive 6,000 square feet in size and will boast panoramic views over the city, showing off sights including the Garibaldi towers. It will be the first ME Hotel in Italy, where Meliá already manages successful hotels including Gran Meliá Rome, Meliá Villa Capri and Meliá Genoa.
