HAMBURG, Germany

Tribute Portfolio, part of Marriott International, Inc., debuted in Germany with the opening of Nordport Plaza, Hamburg-Airport, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel.

Located minutes from Hamburg Airport, an elegant aviation theme flows through the Nordport Plaza Hotel. Sixties-inspired furniture and retro black and white aviation prints populate its public areas and guest rooms.

"We are delighted to welcome Nordport Plaza, Hamburg-Airport as the first Tribute Portfolio property in Germany," said John Licence, vice president Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott International. "With its intriguing design and vibrant social spaces, the hotel epitomizes the qualities we look for."

Extending to 10 floors high, the oval-shaped main building has a glass facade and houses 188 guest rooms. The rooftop Senator Lounge & Sky Bar offers a small-plates menu plus cocktails and features seating inside and out to enjoy sweeping panoramic views out over the airport to Hamburg's magnificent Elbphilharmonie concert hall. Landscaped gardens surround the property and open onto the neighboring nature reserve.

Additionally, the bustling lobby provides an informal menu and a 24-hour deli option for those on the go. The wellness center features a gym, sauna, therapy rooms and a relaxation area with an outdoor terrace.

Curving alongside, and connected by a glass bridge to the accommodation tower, the adjoining four-story building houses Restaurant Blue, a fine dining restaurant as well as the hotel's conference center. With five flexible spaces and three boardrooms, the Nordport Plaza Hotel can host functions for over 400 people. Six additional business lounges are available in the main lobby for informal meetings.
