Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá
Formerly the historic Hotel Charleston, the Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá, which opened in April 2016, is a gleaming, luxurious hotel in Colombia’s capital; in fact, it’s the second Four Seasons to open in the metropolis within the year. Managing to retain its old world allure, the Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá nevertheless has lashings of contemporary style to spare in its 64 spacious, well-appointed guestrooms, which feature hardwood floors and handmade rugs, Colombian artwork on the walls, and marble bathrooms. And though 64 might sound like a smallish offering from the international hotel juggernaut (even if they are found in striking turret-like towers), it’s easily explained away by the fact that over half of the elegant accommodations are suites.
Elsewhere in the hotel, guests will find the usual high-end services, like a business centre, spa, gym. But there are also some truly delicious dining options. Is there any better way to start a day in Bogotá than by sipping a cup of rich Colombian coffee and partaking in a generous breakfast? Probably not. But the Four Seasons definitely tries, hosting breakfast in the stylish Biblioteca, as well as offering guests the chance to linger on the sun-drenched terrace or stay in bed to enjoy it. For lunch and dinner, meanwhile, the Kuru restaurant is fast becoming a top foodie spot. In the talented hands of Morimoto alumnus, Chef Diego Soriano, diners are flocking to this sleek, Japanese-inspired restaurant for mouthwatering dishes like bibimbap (which is prepared at the table), sumptuously fresh sushi, and all manner of meats cooked on the robota grill.
