When you see the sister building of the Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá, you cannot help but notice the different transformations that is has undergone over time. Built as Casa Medina in 1946, featuring a visionary design devised by artist and architect Santiago Medina Mejia with architectural elements salvaged from a demolished convent, it was declared a monument of cultural interest in 1984 by the Ministry of Culture and subsequently restored and transformed into a hotel in 1988. It has now been revived as a hotel with a new building.
Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá is a jewel with many experiential and aesthetic layers, situated in the heart of the Colombian capital’s financial district and frequented by an elite national and international clientele. The atmosphere of the entrance immediately evokes white panama hats and fragrant tobacco, letting the imagination roam free guided by the strong Spanish colonial style, from the beams that project outwards to the stone columns, wooden ceilings and doors inlaid by hand and the iron rebar of the railings. Everything is tastefully combined with modern elements that respectfully recalls the style and spirit of the place.
An eclectic mix of artisan and contemporary elements accompanies guests in every room, evoking the composure and calm of an almost ‘eternal siesta’: in the 62 guest rooms and suites, which are comfortable and spacious, in the charming and sophisticated common areas and social areas, in the spa and fitness center, and in the spaces dedicated to social events and business meetings spread over 350 sq m on the first floor.
