YOTEL to open a hotel in Lisbon World Trade Centre

YOTEL, a global hospitality brand appealing to those looking for a different hotel experience through smart design and the creative use of technology, has announced that it will open a hotel in Lisbon World Trade Centre. This will be YOTEL’s second hotel in Portugal after YOTEL Porto.

YOTEL Lisbon WTC, scheduled to open in 2024, will form part of the Foz Vintage Group’s spectacular World Trade Center development slated to be Portugal’s most innovative and disruptive Business Park.

The hotel will be located within the World Trade Center Lisboa, minutes away from Lisbon city centre, a short drive from the beaches in Cascais and adjacent to Monsanto, the largest green area in the region. The campus, totalling over 35,000 square meters, will also include office, retail, and recreational facilities with the ethos of promoting physical and emotional wellbeing through clever accessible and sustainable solutions. Like YOTEL, the Center has been designed with flexible, adaptable evolving spaces, encouraging collaboration, networking and productivity by delivering comfort and time-saving technology. YOTEL will join other major corporations based in the development, including Worten, Bayer and Helm.

YOTEL Lisbon WTC will feature 127 guest rooms and suites. WTC Lisbon is part of the World Trade Center network, the world’s largest business and investment platform, spanning 322 cities across 90 countries. YOTEL Lisbon WTC will be the first of two YOTEL properties to be part of the international WTC ecosystem, with the second to be announced later this year.

The hotel will feature a restaurant, event space and a panoramic rooftop bar, all catering to both local office workers and in-house guests, alongside a GRAB+GO, co-working areas, and a 24/7 fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment. The hotel will be the ideal accommodation for people visiting and working in the WTC or one of the other nine business parks located within a three kilometre radius.

Rohan Thakkar, Chief Development Officer, YOTEL, said:

Lisbon has always been a priority for YOTEL’s expansion, particularly following the opening of YOTEL Porto last year. We are delighted to have signed a long-term management agreement with Foz Vintage, a group that defines its projects on innovation, the environment, and its people, the same values which we embrace at YOTEL. YOTEL Lisbon WTC will further our expansion strategy across Southern Europe, both within Portugal and nearby markets such as Spain and France.

Vasco Fonseca, Chief Operating Officer of the FVC Group, said:

YOTEL offers a concept perfectly aligned with our vision at WTC Lisbon, which gives priority, above all, to innovation and technology, sustainability and people’s well-being. YOTEL’s spaces are designed to create a unique experience for each stay, able to engage and connect guests. Its auditorium will also serve as a stage for major events, in particular, to receive the schedule that we foresee for the WTC Business Club, which aims to be a space of choice for business networking and for the discussion of strategic themes for companies and projects, nationally and internationally.

YOTEL currently operates 19 hotels around the world and has another 13 under development, with a YOTEL / YOTELPAD property opening in Miami this month and YOTEL Geneva Lake opening later this year.
