CARLSON Rezidor Hotel Group is reinventing its Park Inn by Radisson brand in India having opened the first next-generation property last month.
The 98-key Park Inn by Radisson Gurgaon Bilaspur will be joined by eight more next-generation Park Inn by Radisson hotels, with one in New Delhi expected to be completed first.
New standards set for Park Inn by Radisson hotels include a vibrant colour scheme, in-room amenities such as sofa beds so that family travellers will not have to ask for an extra bed, a mobile table allowing guests to have breakfast in bed, and RBG (Restaurant, Bar & Grill) restaurant offering an all-day menu of local and international cuisines.
Raj Rana, CEO, South Asia, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, said: “From now onwards all the Park Inn by Radisson properties will have a very well-defined set of standards, be it colour scheme or the technology and the service that goes in each hotel. So, all the properties under the aegis of the brand are going to be consistent in terms of look and feel.
“Earlier, since some of the properties of the brand were converted projects, some of the design elements associated with the Park Inn brand were not there in some properties,” he explained.
Last year Carlson Rezidor partnered Bestech Hospitalities to build 49 Park Inn by Radisson hotels in North and Central India (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 16, 2014). The hotel chain is now scouting for a partnership on the same lines for South and East India.
Carlson Rezidor operates 209 Park Inn by Radisson properties globally.
