The word “outfit” has a double meaning when referring to novelties at the largest convention hotel in Ljubljana, known for its elegant and historic Grand Union Hall. Both guest rooms and the staff proudly wear a new, chic outfit.

The first stage of an investment worth € 4 million, initially focusing on the refurbishment of guest rooms at the Grand Hotel Union Business, has been concluded. Seventy stylish and comfortable rooms with amenities tailored to the needs of business travellers have welcome their first guests. The second stage, comprising the remaining sixty three rooms and the public areas, will proceed in early 2010, followed by a soft refurbishment of the guest rooms in the historic Grand Hotel Union Executive.


Concurrently, the launch of new, “signature” uniforms for the Hotel’s staff is announced in autumn 2009. And what an artist has been commissioned! A resident of Ljubljana, born in Zagreb, a genius who is attracted to complex challenges, a creative who, apart from theatre, also designs costumes for circus.. (but what a circus - Cirque du Soleil!). These are just a few words to describe Alan Hranitelj, who has created new uniforms for the Grand Hotel Union. The idea for the “new look” was born during the ceremony that marked 100 years of the hotel, when the employees were dressed in historic, early 20th century uniforms. The hotel management then took the decision to completely restyle the staff uniforms and assigned this exciting project to Alan Hranitelj. The uniforms are inspired from the Art Nouveau style and can be described as simple, yet very chic clothes with marked details and materials of a top quality.
