The first of two Four Seasons hotels planned for Bogotá, Colombia's capital, is now accepting reservations for its Oct. 15 debut. The 62-room Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogotá, a conversion of the landmark Casa Medina residential-style hotel, was restored and completely renovated for its reintroduction. 
The French and Spanish-influenced design details of the original 1946 building have been maintained and combined with modern luxuries. An all-day signature restaurant, Castanyoles Raciones y Tapas, is one of the new amenities. It will serve a Spanish-influenced menu as well as Colombian coffee to go, and offer a 16-seat private dining room.

Also on-site are a full-service spa and a 24-hour gym, as well as several meeting and event spaces. The Casa Medina room can accommodate up to 160 people for a seated dinner or 200 for a reception, and the Los Rosales room -- the former hotel restaurant -- can hold a meeting for 25 attendees or a reception for as many as 60.

The second of the brand's properties in the city, the 64-room Four Seasons Hotel Bogotá, will open early next year in the trendy Zona T.
