Tribute Portfolio, Marriott International’s newest collection of independent, characterful hotels, today welcomed Abbey Hotel Bath, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel to its roster following a complete refurbishment. Now a stylish and contemporary boutique hotel occupying three Georgian townhouses on North Parade, a wide promenade in Bath’s old quarters close to the spectacular Pulteney Bridge and Roman Baths, the hotel perfectly fits Tribute Portfolio’s ethos of offering hotels that marry captivating design with energetic social spaces and sincere service.
Designed by Street Design Partnership, the interiors are inspired by Bath’s artistic heritage. Bold print patterns, textured wallpapers and statement colours used throughout the hotel nod to different branches of art and design celebrated in Bath such as fine art, print, architecture and photography. The designers were further inspired by the bold primary colours that make up an artist’s palette and developed a colour bank of atmospheric blues, greens, oranges and yellows for the property. These rich tones complement the original grand architecture of the building by John Wood and provide the perfect backdrop for the property’s extensive contemporary art collection curated by Artist in Residence, Emma Taylor.
The hotel’s 65 individually styled guestrooms feature delightfully comfortable beds fitted with hypnos mattresses, oversized locally-produced toiletries and complimentary water, tea, coffee and super-fast WIFI. In a subtle appreciation for the arts, guestrooms are themed ‘print’, ‘cinematography’ or ‘gallery’. Gallery and Gallery Family Rooms also come with Nespresso coffee machines and mini fridges.
Adding to the hotel’s ‘home from home’ feel, the day-to-night ArtBar sits at the heart of the hotel and is known as much for its vibrant social space and curated collection of artworks as it is for its bespoke cocktail menu. The delicious list of cocktails features classics like Bellini’s and Martini’s as well as personalised creations such as the South West 75, inspired by locally sourced Somerset ingredients.
The Abbey Hotel Kitchen is perfect for those in search of good quality food in a relaxed and stylish environment, serving a mix of English classics, healthy choices and indulgent dishes. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s private terrace located at the front of the hotel overlooking Bath Abbey and Parade Gardens.
Prices at Abbey Hotel Bath start from £149 per night for bed and breakfast. Special opening offers include an Explore Bath experiential break, which offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a private, interactive two-hour guided walking tour of the city of Bath.
