Transcorp Hotels targets more earnings with upgrades
Transcorp Hotels Plc is targeting increased business and earnings as it reopened the Executive Floors and Lounge of its flagship Transcorp Hilton Abuja after upgrade.
The reopening marks a milestone in the on-going $100 million renovation project of the historic and award winning five-Star hotel, leading up to its 30th anniversary commemoration this year.
According to the management, the Nigerian spirit of resilience inspires the redesign, which was conceptualised by Swedish interior designer, Living Designs, with freshness and maximum comfort.
The company explained that all-new rooms and suites have been fitted with world-class amenities and latest technology to ensure the ultimate comfort of the guests.
The Managing Director/CEO, Transcorp Hotels, Valentine Ozigbo, while speaking on the reopening ceremony, said: “Our guests have grown to expect nothing less than the very best from us. That includes the pinnacle of customer service, overall comfort, and a level of aesthetic appeal rivalled by no other hotel in Nigeria.
“The complete overhaul of the Executive Floor and Lounge is a testament to our commitment to delivering extraordinary experience to our guests.”
Also, the General Manager, Transcorp Hilton Abuja, Etienne Gailliez, added: “We are excited to attain this milestone of our renovation project. Our guests are really going to love the truly impressive transformation of the Executive Floor Guest rooms and Lounge.
“We are proud to work with owners, who have a deep understanding of our industry and embrace our brand culture of creating a rewarding experience for our guests”.
According to him, the all-new executive floors will continue to deliver luxury to guests as well as an exclusive experience combined with security, with the introduction of access control to the floors and lounge.
The Chairman of Transcorp Plc, Tony Elumelu, while expressing his impressions on the new executive floors, said: “I have stayed at the Transcorp Hilton Abuja as a guest for decades, and I am extremely impressed by the transformation of the executive floors.
“I have no doubt that our guests will be thrilled. I am very proud of the commitment of the team in getting the job done, ensuring that Transcorp Hilton Abuja continues to deliver quality that rivals any 5-star hotel experience in the world,” Elumelu said.
He noted that the newly unveiled executive floors, 186 rooms and suites in total, are only the first milestone in the ambitious upgrade, adding that all the 667 rooms and suites of the hotel, the largest Hilton in sub-Saharan Africa, will be overhauled.
“Guests also have more to look forward to with extensive renovations planned for the lobby areas, banqueting and conferencing facilities, restaurants, bars and the business centre. An all-new spa and fully upgraded fitness centre will also enhance the hotel’s offerings to both lifestyle travellers and business clientele,” he added.
