The Kessler Collection, a portfolio of 11 artistically-inspired boutique hotels and restaurants, is excited to debut in Alabama with the opening of Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook on October 23, 2015.
The Kessler Collection set to open the Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook, the first luxury boutique hotel in the state of Alabama on Oct. 23, 2015.
Located in the affluent Mountain Brook suburb of Birmingham, Ala., this 100-room boutique hotel will continue The Kessler Collection’s award-winning commitment to providing superior guest services, Bohemian inspiration and artistic offerings. The highly anticipated property will be the first luxury boutique hotel of its caliber in the state of Alabama, boasting an on-site Grand Bohemian Gallery featuring rare, local and international original artwork, signature Poseidon Spa, grand ballroom and meeting spaces, interactive cooking school, wine blending experience and tasting room with curated selections, vibrant rooftop terrace and restaurant showcasing regional flavors.
Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook welcomes guests to a European, floral atmosphere through bold colors and oversized chairs, custom designed carpets and lighting that reflect Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ dynamic and vibrant grounds while remaining true to the Kessler brand. Guestrooms boast rich colored drapery and Mitch Kolbe artwork. The Bohemian Presidential and Vice Presidential Suites feature hardwood floors, extraordinary custom interior textiles and furnishings complemented by beautiful views of the gardens. The Grand Bohemian Presidential Suite touts two balconies, a custom bar, and fireplace for guests who want a comforting respite at the end of the night. Lavish bathrooms are adorned with Calcutta gold marble counters, colorful glass sconces and framed antique glass vanity mirrors.
Guests looking to mingle can dine at Habitat Feed & Social, the rooftop restaurant for a mouth-watering selection of fresh, regionally inspired cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. The bar serves an assortment of botanically- inspired cocktails, and opens onto the rooftop terrace. The country club chic hotel also offers a cooking school where guests learn about modern cuisine, hands-on or demonstration style. Next to the cooking school, guests play the role of a Vintner with one-of-a-kind Bohemian wine tasting and blending experiences, where guests can taste test 32 different types of wine from a state-of-the-art automated wine dispenser, blend their own custom red varietal during a 90-minute interactive educational class, as well as create a personalized label for their masterpiece.
Healing the mind, body and spirit, guests are transported to a sea-inspired oasis of relaxation at Poseidon Spa. The spa offers a peaceful, botanical setting featuring a sustainable living wall garden, gorgeous organic wall coverings, stunning custom chandeliers and plush teal velvet seating. Extraordinary treatments at the elegant, full-service spa include herbal poultice massage, lavender peppermint scalp treatment and an aqua gel facial masque. Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook will also offer a 24-hour fitness center equipped with cardio machines, custom-programmed music and outdoor pool.
Conveniently located adjacent to the city of Birmingham, the previous industrial center of the Southern U.S., Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook has the best of both worlds, as it is a part of the unique architectural charm of Mountain Brook while being close to downtown Birmingham entertainment. Birmingham is home to the nation’s oldest baseball park, Rickwood Field; Birmingham Museum of Art; the Local Wine Trail with vineyards and wineries; and the Sidewalk Film Festival, all which offer visitors a truly exclusive experience.
Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook will consistently attract visiting couples, family getaways, weddings, college football games and business travelers with sophisticated offerings set in a Southern retreat.
