- The Hotel Professionals team supported the investors of Centrum Praskie Koneser as a hotel advisor already in the initial stages of the Moxy project. A natural continuation of the successful cooperation with Hotel Professionals was the involvement of its sister company Hotel Professionals Management Group as a business advisor at the investment implementation stage and as a management team for the Moxy Warsaw Praga hotel. We would like to thank the whole team, led by Alex Kloszewski and Guy Simmons, for our cooperation. Reliability, professionalism, market know-how and HP and HPMG's full commitment of the team constituted great value for our venture - comments Marc Lebbe, founder and managing director of Liebrecht & wooD Group.
“The signed lease agreement for the Moxy Warsaw Praga hotel is the next stage of an effective commercialization strategy for Centrum Praskie Koneser. Thanks to Hotel Professionals' support, we have created a unique hotel within our investment, which is why we are convinced that our cooperation will be continued in other hotel projects in the future - adds Magdalena Bartkiewicz-Podoba, CEO (general director) at Liebrecht & wooD Poland.
- Our cooperation with the Liebrecht & wooD Group on the hotel project part of the Centrum Praskie Koneser complex began in 2014 and since then our team has worked hand in hand with the investor to create a unique hotel product that meets the highest standards and achieves high results in Marriott's rankings.
