  • Next to Come - Hotels Offering Self Service Options to Guests

    The current economic growth and an increase in number of business travelers, there is a scarcity of hotel rooms. This rendered a chance to most hotels to increase their tariffs by as much as 100% over the past one year. Developers are coming with a new trend to give a start to another niche in the hospitality sector.

    The demand for hotel rooms is going through the roof. Most business individuals find it irksome to find a comfortable room at rates that don’t cost the moon. Two such hotels are leading in this trend that analysts say could spread quite rapidly in Pune.

    The Ginger Hotel, in Pimpri, Chinchwad area is part of Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL) or the Taj Group. It has been built by Krishna Kumar Goyal of Kohinoor Group. The second, Smart Inn, is coming up on Apte road is being set up by the Talera group.

    These hotels will provide self service trend to business travelers. Self service offers guests the liberty to work out things as they want and leave them enough time to be on their own, explains Krishna Kumar Goyal, MD, Kohinoor Group.

    These hotels will incorporate an array of facilities including gymnasium, air conditioned rooms, meeting rooms, a cyber café, 24 hour reception, digital safe deposit boxes, as well as wi-fi connectivity in public areas and individual rooms. Some of them may also feature a restaurant. However, these hotels will work on the concept of high degree of automation and self service options. Their idea is to deliver the food to the guests’ rooms from restaurant nearby.

    I found it interesting to have a self service option in hotels.
Have any questions or thoughts about this?
