When it comes to gastronomy and nightlife Bogotá, Colombia is becoming one of the world’s hottest new places to visit. Soon to open is the new Four Seasons in the upscale North Zone of Bogotá. The luxury hotel will occupy a restored brick building originally conceived by architect Santiago Medina Mejía in 1946. The building is situation in Bogotá’s most cosmopolitan area known for luxury shopping, nightlife and haute cuisine.
The building which houses the Four Seasons Bogotá was originally constructed as apartments, it was converted into a hotel in 1988 and has undergone its most recent restoration by architect Milena Vargas, who brought a sense of the structure’s history into her concept for the Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá.
The hotel retains its interior brickwork, beamed ceilings, parquet flooring, stained-glass windows and a beautiful curved wood staircase in the hotel’s lobby. Mejia incorporated several architectural elements salvaged from the demolished convents of San Agustin and Santo Domingo, including hand-carved doors and stone columns.
Guest rooms are designed by Interiors designer Lauren Rottet who curated the selection of artwork that hangs in the rooms and throughout the hotel. The guest rooms are decorated with leather Chesterfield sofas, trunk-inspired tables, and paneled-wood minibars.
