Budimex has built a four-star hotel on the site of the former Feature Film Studio in Łódź. It was the first DoubleTree by Hilton facility in Poland. In addition to rooms, it offers a complex of conference rooms, a restaurant, a fitness/spa complex with a swimming pool on the top floor with a view of the park, a cinema room and an underground car park, serving the hotel, office and cinema areas.

The building is divided into three parts: a four-star hotel with 188 rooms, facilities and a conference center, an office part and a cinema. The building is characterized by modern architectural and structural solutions. It combines the history and tradition of the film industry in Łódź with today’s and future potential to function as a large conference, congress, office and hotel centre. The façade of the hotel and office building is noteworthy. Thanks to the use of m.in. the interpretation of a frame from the film “Forbidden Songs”, the first post-war film made at the Feature Film Studio in Łódź, was incorporated into the glass pane.

The main body of the designed building, which houses hotel and office functions, has 11 storeys (height 43.5 m). Under the building there is a common underground garage with 87 parking spaces, including for the disabled. The structure of the building is reinforced concrete with steel elements. The foundation of the building is a reinforced concrete foundation slab. A hotel, office and cinema building in Łódź won the first degree award in the category of Buildings evaluated individually in the Construction of the Year 2013 competition.
