BW Switzerland Opens Hotel Catering to Tall Guests


Best Western Switzerland Opens Hotel Catering to Tall Guests

BERN (Sept. 24, 2009) – At last there is a hotel that can offer tall people a comfortable stay. Last month, the new Best Western Hotel Stücki in Basel opened its doors. All the hotel beds are more than 7 feet long (2.2 meters) long and at least 43 inches (110 centimeters) wide. Even the tallest basketball player will be comfortable in these beds! In addition, all the rooms are on an average 9.5 feet (2.9 meters) high and the showers are generously equipped with rainshower heads.

The Best Western Hotel Stücki has 122 air-conditioned rooms and 9 suites, all have 32-inch flat-screen television and computer screens as well as free high-speed Internet. For business travelers who need to stay longer in the trade fair city of Basel, there are 13 business apartments with their own kitchens, which are equipped with glass ceramic cooktop, microwave oven, grill, refrigerator, and coffee machine, as well as with king-sized beds and large bathrooms.

The hotel is a part of the shopping centre with the same name, and its lobby is directly accessible from the underground parking garage. Based on its unique layout with a bar, foyer, gallery with a food-service island, as well as an efficient, high-capacity kitchen, it can be used for receptions. In addition the hotel is connected to the first Block House Steak Restaurant in Switzerland.
