celebrating our second century
Hotel AKA Alexandria

Design Vision

Piero Lissoni has created an architectural gem that effortlessly blends modern design with the charming brick-lined setting of Old Town, Alexandria. Lissoni's team has given a new identity to the property, surrounded by lush gardens and serene public spaces. 

The sleek lines, dark tones, and rich materials of the common areas evoke Japanese minimalism and a reinterpretation of colonial styling. Throughout the guestrooms and common areas, guests will find chic furnishings sourced from the world's leading artisans, including Lema, Living Divani, and Porro, as well as intricate lighting that conveys a welcoming and relaxing environment.

The centerpiece of the lobby is a dramatic floating staircase — a signature feature of Lissoni's — that accentuates the transformative experience of moving throughout the property.
