Hyatt Regency Cologne says no to President Obama after WTTC Summit Seville


U.S. President Barak Obama is on a tourism trip. Today he is expected to be the star participant at the World Travel and Tourism Council Annual Summit 2019 in Seville, Spain.

On Thursday the popular former president is on his way to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cologne. Mark Hoplamazian, CEO of Hyatt is listed to be a participant at today’s WTTC Summit and most likely would love to make sure the president could enjoy the presidential suite at the four-star Hotel in Cologne Deutz.

Unfortunately, not even the CEO is able to arrange this for the popular former US president,  since the suite is fully booked and occupied until April 30, according to sources at Hyatt.

The hotel is known for an unobstructed view of the famous Cologne Cathedral from Rhine River Facing rooms and junior suites, however. The Hyatt Regency is in a short walk over a pedestrian bridge crossing River Rhein to the Cathedral and the Roman museum are in walking distance from the hotel.

President Obama will be a speaker at the World Leadership Summit in Cologne on Thursday at the Cologne Lanxess Arena. This is a public event, and tickets are available from 85,55 EUR bis 206,30 EUR plus a number of VIP tickets for EURO 5,000.00 that includes a dinner with the president.

According to local media reports the event in Cologne sold 10,000 tickets so far, but there are 5,000 tickets still available.

The former president will meet her half-sister Auma. She studied in Heidelberg and speaks German.

From Cologne, the president will move on to Berlin and will be answering questions by your people on Saturday in a town-hall meeting.
