Grand Hotels upgrading properties

Operator invests RM13mil to refurbish all Grand Continental hotels

PENANG: Grand Hotels International Asia Pacific is investing about RM13mil to upgrade all its nine hotel properties under the Grand Continental brand in the country.

Hotel Grand Continental (Penang) manager Dennis Cheng said the hotels were now in various stages of refurbishment that would be completed within six months.

“We carried out the first phase of the upgrading exercise last year with the installation of broadband facilities in all the hotels.

“The upgrading exercise is aimed at enhancing the corporate image of the hotels,” he told a press briefing.

Cheng said the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 campaign helped improve the hotels’ occupancy rate last year by 10% to 15% over the achievement in 2006.

“In 2007, the hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Terengganu and Kuantan averaged over 80% occupancy rate daily.

“Meanwhile, the other six hotels achieved between 60% and 70% occupancy rate daily,” he said.

Cheng said the group emphasised on its services to compete with other hotels of similar range.

“We provide five-star warm and friendly services,” he added.
