Nato Summit

Ever wondered what world leaders get up to on a Nato Summit? Well Cardiff’s St David’s Hotel & Spa, where many delegates of last week’s summit stayed, has released some ‘Nato by numbers’.

Over course of the two-day summit, which was attended by US President Barack Obama, PM David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Welsh capital’s only five-star hotel has revealed:

  • 5,000 cups of coffee were served with 1,000 of those served to security members alone
  • 2,500 additional newspapers were requested by delegates
  • 500 extra omelettes were prepared by kitchen staff
  • 480 minutes of additional breakfast time was allotted
  • 400 extra room service orders were placed
  • 100%: the percentage increase for the hotel’s night team
  • 60 days: the hotel was fully booked 60 days ahead of the event
  • 50 plug adapters given out to delegates
  • 8 bedrooms were cleared of furniture and transformed into communication and security hubs
  • 2 extra satellite dishes were fitted onto the hotel roof to cope with security demand

General manager of the 142-room hotel Andreas Maszczyk said: “This is the first time Nato has been held in the UK in 24 years and we were delighted to be the venue of choice for many of the high-profile delegates.

“The event has demonstrated that we can provide security and flexibility to ensure all service requirements are fulfilled for large events as well as individual guests.”
