WIESBADEN, GERMANY, December 22, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock Hotel, Wiesbaden is to offer a per diem rate due to a change in location of its headquarters. During the next two years the US Army Europe, the Seventh Army and the US Army Corps will move to Wiesbaden and the hotel is therefore looking forward to welcome them as guests.
The per diem rate is a specific amount of money that an organization allows its employees to spend per day to cover living and travelling expenses in connection with work. It eliminates the need to create expense reports after their business trips.
The introduction of a per diem rate clearly shows the hotel's awareness of the needs of its American guests. The city hotel Wiesbaden has already installed new televisions in its guest rooms as well as satellite television with more than 80 international channels and new complimentary high speed wireless Internet access. The Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock Hotel, Wiesbaden has previously implemented these changes in other locations and has received positive feedback from guests and event organisers.
Historically there is a very interesting and exciting connection between the US Army and the Hotel Schwarzer Bock. After the 2nd World War the hotel was used as one of the headquarters of the US Army in Wiesbaden for 12 years. The hotel and its staff are therefore more than happy to welcome its American guests back to the hotel to celebrate the "re-union".
The renowned hotel was, and still is, a popular meeting place for celebrities and dignitaries from politics, the corporate world, arts and science. It is also a place where the time-honored tradition of spa culture is lovingly preserved in a perfect blend of history and modernity. The Radisson Blu Schwarzer Bock hotel Wiesbaden offers 142 guest rooms and suites of Wiesbaden accommodation that mix traditional flair and timeless elegance with modern services and conveniences. All guest rooms feature air conditioning, bathrobe and slippers, as well as free high speed wireless LAN. The hotel provides 8 meeting rooms Wiesbaden ranging in size from 54 sq. meters (581 sq. ft.) to 195 sq. meters (2099 sq. ft.), with 6 modern conference rooms located on the 5th floor all offering fantastic views over the rooftops of Wiesbaden and capable of holding up to 230 delegates. 2 historic banquet rooms are located on the ground floor; a ball room and the famous "Ingelheimer" salon, beautifully adorned with wood paneling that dates back to the 16th century.
The modern spa, located in the back of the building, features Finnish sauna, steam room and shower while the thermal bath features a 5 x 7 m (5.46 x 7.65 yards) indoor pool with natural spring water averaging about 30 degrees C (86 degrees F).
