NOVUM Hotel Group and Citygrove Plan niu Tab in Düsseldorf, Germany

DUSSELDORF, DE. August 9, 2017 - The NOVUM Hotel Group has been growing rapidly since 2004 – and the innovative brand niu has provided an additional boost since March. Recently the number of niu hotels has reached 33. Together with the English investor Citygrove European Developments Ltd, NOVUM Hotel Group is planning to build another hotel at Moscow Street 29. Start of construction - including 438 rooms - is planned for mid-2018. Gleeds Deutschland GmbH has been entrusted with project management. The architects of the building are Siemer Kramer Architect Engineers based in Hamburg.

The planned niu hotel is easily accessible and is located only a stone's throw from the city center of Düsseldorf. Young, creative people visit the numerous cafes, galleries and extraordinary shops here. It is the perfect location for niu Tab, because it is both cosmopolitan and unique. Each niu has a design concept tailored to the location and zeitgeist.

The niu Tab in Düsseldorf is characterized by modern architecture and a high quality of life, both unmistakably evident in the furnishings, lighting and decorative accessories as trendy, geometric shapes and patterns. Asia fans will be delighted here. Thanks to the many karaoke bars, Japanese shops and sake bars, Düsseldorf is also known as "Little Tokyo on the Rhine”. Characteristic elements such as Asian characters and bamboo ensure a wonderful surprise and inspire people to make selfies for their own social media channels or for the hotel's Instagram wall. Digital natives are connected everywhere, at any time, with ultra-fast Wi-Fi, USB ports and power connections. Delicious local snacks and drinks such as "Bierhappen" (beer snacks) and the characteristic "Altbier" (local traditional beer) enhance the high quality of life in the niu Tab.

What comes to mind when you think of Duesseldorf? For us, it's the Kö, Altbier art and of course, the vibrant Little-Tokyo. As a result, it makes perfect sense that Tab stands for Tokyo - Art - Beer.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
