(hospitalitybusinessnews.com) IHG has started to welcome guests into Crowne Plaza Bandung, the first Crowne Plaza in Bandung, Indonesia. The new hotel offers 270 contemporary and upscale guest rooms and a comprehensive range of meetings facilities close to Bandung’s city centre and Central Business District (CBD).
Nestled in the heart of the city, Crowne Plaza Bandung is less than 30 minutes from Husein Sastranegara International Airport and accessible by major railway lines and the Pasteur Toll Gate, perfect for business travellers who want to minimise transit time and easily commute to and from meetings in the main commercial and business districts.
For leisure travellers visiting Bandung, the hotel is a short walk from the city’s famous Braga Street, or Jalan Braga, surrounded by quaint cafes and local bakeries. Guests can also visit the city’s historical sites at Jalan Asia Afrika, shop at the many outlets or catch the rides and shows at the Trans Studio Bandung indoor amusement park just around the corner.
Christian Kronast, General Manager, Crowne Plaza Bandung, said: “Our business guests will enjoy our Executive Club Lounge and our range of versatile meeting spaces within the hotel. We are looking forward to welcoming guests into Crowne Plaza Bandung and ensuring they have an exceptional stay with us whether for business or leisure.
“Crowne Plaza Bandung features state-of-the-art meeting facilities including an 800-sqm ballroom, which can host up to 1,000 guests. There are 12 multipurpose meeting rooms for a variety of social and corporate events, and a dedicated Crowne Plaza meetings team to ensure all events run smoothly. The hotel also provides complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access for guests to stay connected and an Executive Club Lounge – one of the largest of its kind in Bandung – offering guests seamless personalised service along with a panoramic view of the city.
Our guest rooms and suites are beautifully and elegantly decorated, offering stunning views of the city. We also have several dining options such as the Mosaic all-day dining restaurant and Mountain View poolside bar for guests to catch up with their friends or business colleagues over a delicious meal or refreshing cocktail.
To unwind and recharge, guests can go for a swim in a 25-metre outdoor infinity swimming pool overlooking the city or enjoy a workout at a fully equipped fitness centre. For a more relaxing experience, there is also a wide selection of pampering massage therapies and skincare treatments available at the spa, as well as a Kids Club, so that families can keep the young ones entertained.”
Alan Watts, Chief Operating Officer AMEA, IHG commented: “With the opening of the first Crowne Plaza in Bandung, we now have Crowne Plaza hotels in three key cities in Indonesia, including Jakarta and Semarang. Bandung is an increasingly metropolitan city and we see our new hotel as perfectly positioned to cater for the influx of both business and leisure travellers. Our guests want to be productive and get the most out of their trip, so as we are in the heart of the city and near major transport links, Crowne Plaza Bandung is the perfect choice when visiting.”
