Space comes to this trade show after a series of highly successful new entries the Hotel degli Imperatori in Roma, the 4 Viale Masini Hotel Design in Bologna and The Hub opening in Milan in September 2009 highlighted by the return to the network of the Hotel Plaza & De Russie in Viareggio after an absence of one year. All these affiliations confirm the value of a brand that has been a landmark, since 1974, for hotels wishing to use a technologically advanced reservation system, an efficient voice booking centre, and a well-organised sales force. "It is gratifying to observe how a growing number of new hotels have chosen Space Hotels for their launch on the market, says General Director Lidia Rescigno. Evidently, our serious and professional working methods have the approval and are the preference of hoteliers. These facts also emerged in a recent board of directors meeting during which Dr. Piero Marzot was nominated Company president."
The Hotel degli Imperatori is located near the Tiburtina subway station on the B line. The four-star hotel has 50 distinctly designed, welcoming guestrooms. Its restaurant, "Il Condottiero", with an Asian-influenced décor, seats 80 people and has a smoking room. It offers elaborate, creative Italian and international dishes along with a selection of first quality wines.
The four-star 4 Viale Masini Hotel Design in Bologna has a contemporary and original elegance, in which design and creativity are blended with elements from the past. The hotel, which is located 200 metres from Central Station, has 82 guestrooms, three conference rooms and offers high-level comfort and services.
The Plaza & De Russie in Viareggio returns to the Space Hotels network on 1 January 2009. The Plaza & De Russie, built in art nouveau style in 1871 on the "Grand Tour" route, is the oldest hotel in Viareggio. Its name pays homage to the Russian nobility that spent their holidays in Versilia. Chandeliers from Murano and precious period pieces invite guests to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of a bygone era. Its restaurant, La Terrazza, has a lovely view of the seaside.
The Hub Hotel is a real urban resort in the heart of the business and conference area of Milan. It has 162 large rooms and suites with a minimalist design style, warm colours, opulent furnishings and modern, hi-tech systems. The hotel also offers a modern conference centre that seats up to 600 people and a wellness centre with a panoramic view, a swimming pool, a sauna and a gym.

The entire Supranational chain offers more than 1,000 hotels in 75 nations and over 500 cities, which can be reached through 21 reservation offices, the GDS (code SX) or the Internet at www.spacehotels.it.
