A pioneering redesign, the 617 bedroom hotel, has revealed new cutting edge facilities such as state of the art break-out spaces and brighter meeting rooms after the industry reported an increase in demand for more creative and relaxed spaces.
Further investment means that guests can experience superfast free Wifi, so they can catch up on emails, keep up-to-date with the latest news online or talk to family and friends at home. There’s plenty of space if there’s still work to be done too, with quiet work stations and printers, and for guests in a more playful mood, there’s table football and a wide choice of board games so delegates can relax and direct their thoughts away from work during break times.
General Manager, Lissy Thornquist said: “We are a very big hotel in a great location and therefore welcome a lot of business travellers from around the world. Through continued focus on our meetings and events product, including listening to and understanding our different customer’s needs, we have been able to create a service that cannot be found elsewhere.
She continued: “The meetings industry has changed dramatically over the last few years, with delegates wanting to feel less restricted and more creative. Developments in technology mean that meeting styles have changed, and people are always switched on. We are continually aiming to improve our standards and stay one step ahead to ensure we are constantly meeting our guest needs, and we don’t plan to stop here as there is further investment scheduled this year to develop our bedroom product.”
As with all Holiday Inn venues, the hotel will continue to provide a flexible meetings and events space with packages tailored to suit modern business needs. Business guests will be able to take up the ‘Your Meeting, Your Way’ pledge, designed to help businesses get the most from their meetings, backed up by a money back guarantee.
