On 1 October 2022, General Manager Tim Henrik Göhring and his team welcomed the first guest, marking the official opening of newly built IntercityHotel Herford. The hotel has 135 guest rooms, a breakfast restaurant and bar, not to mention three meeting rooms boasting 90 square meters. Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun was in charge of the interior design. The hotel is operated by Scoop Hotels, a franchise partner of Deutsche Hospitality.
According to Axel Jünke, Managing Director Scoop Hotels: "The opening of IntercityHotel Herford on 1 October is another milestone in the joint history of Deutsche Hospitality and Scoop Hotels. Guests in Herford can look forward to a combination of mobility, design, comfort and service in actual practice."
The IntercityHotel Herford is located in the heart of the city, near Herford main station. Directly across the street is the "Marta Herford" museum for contemporary art, architecture and design, which opened its doors in 2005. The exterior itself looks like a work of art: The asymmetrical museum building made of red clinker brick and stainless steel was designed by star Canadian-US architect Frank Gehry.
