The pandemic may have dealt a heavy blow to Prague’s tourism industry, but for some businesses, it created an opportunity for change. Prague Marriott Hotel has emerged from a year of closures and restrictions with an entirely new look and a host of culinary offerings that beckon both foreign and local clientele.

Now when people are more eager than ever to relish a nice meal, Marriott’s new signature restaurant and bar The Artisan is launching a variety of culinary experiences.

Diners can enjoy a delicious breakfast menu featuring original dishes such as Beef pastrami waffle, business lunch, romantic dinner, or popular Sunday family brunch.

Guests will taste the difference with seasonal ingredients sourced from Czech farms, herbs grown on-site in a special urban cultivator, and condiments that are made in-house.

The Artisan’s “theater kitchen” adds an immersive element as the Executive chef David Rejhon and his team prepare traditional dishes in an innovative way right before their eyes.

The small bites selection and Czech-composers-themed cocktail menu (try the Leoš Janáček, a shaker full of lychee, Mirabelle, passion fruit, and chardonnay bubbles served with raspberry caviar) and give the Artisan bar date night appeal.

A new café, The Artisan Corner, serves freshly-brewed coffees and classic Czech baked goods with a modern twist which can also be enjoyed in the hotel’s outdoor seating area.

The Marriott's Sunday family brunch has become particularly popular. Running every Sunday from 12:30 pm until 3 pm it has several courses including premium local meat or fresh fish, as well as a rich selection of appetizers, salads, sushi, and seafood, rounded off with a selection of homemade desserts.

Brunch is accompanied every Sunday by a special program of live music, a raffle, and entertainment for kids.

Looking ahead, the hotel is already preparing for the upcoming festive season. Guests can look forward to advent brunches, Christmas dinner, and Prague Marriott Hotel's popular New Year’s Eve party. Corporate clients and office teams can already book one of the hotel's Christmas party packages to plan a stylish get-together in advance.

The Marriott’s revamped food offering forms just one aspect of an extensive renovation project which also includes a completely new interior design of its common areas and a major expansion. Over 100 new rooms and suites have been added, some of them offering balconies with beautiful views of the Old Town panorama.

“We have implemented a new and sophisticated modern redesign across a range of spaces that's perfect for relaxation, work, and socializing,” said William Boulton-Smith, General Manager of the Prague Marriott Hotel. "Guests arriving from the Czech Republic or abroad, staying for business or leisure, will find something to enjoy here."

The conference space has been also significantly redesigned and expanded. The hotel’s interiors now feature a sleek, modern design following a €25 million refurbishment.

This smart transformation as well as its central location in the heart of Prague, promises to make the hotel one of the city's most vibrant dining and entertainment hubs, for locals and tourists, all year round.
