IHG Opens Staybridge Suites® The Hague - Parliament in The Netherlands Led by General Manager Floor Hilhorst

United Kingdom, Denham. November 29, 2018

IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group®), one of the world's leading hotel companies, has opened its first Staybridge Suites® in The Netherlands, Staybridge Suites® The Hague - Parliament.

Located in the heart of The Hague, the hotel is situated opposite the world's oldest parliament building still in use, the Binnenhof, and sits alongside the stunning Court Pond the 'Hofvijver' and the famous Mauritshuis Museum, making it the perfect locations to take pictures of The Hague's historic skyline.

Designed to meet the needs of extended stay guests from business travellers to families, Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament offers 101 contemporary designed suites that deliver the comforts of home with fully equipped kitchens, comfortable living areas, and flexible working spaces.

The unique layout and interior design is inspired by the city's rich history and environment. The hotel itself is comprised of three buildings, two of which are located on the central Lange Vijverberg. The historical design influence can be seen in the hotel's use of panelling, brass finishing and a traditional colour palette of rich deep blue and warm ochre. Connecting all three buildings together is a stunning Parisian style courtyard, adding to the ambience of the hotel. From the moment visitors step into the hotel's bright and beautiful indoor courtyard lobby, guests will be made to feel completely at ease in the relaxing Livingroom.

Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament is a two minute walk from some of the city's most popular bars, shops and restaurants, including the iconic Bijenkorf department store. With The Hague Central Train Station just a 10 minute walk from the hotel, guests can easily explore nearby cultural venues and attractions, such as the Peace Palace, and miniature theme park Madurodam, Rotterdam, while the sea is just five kilometres away.

Floor Hilhorst, General Manager for Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament commented: “We are delighted to be bringing the Staybridge Suites brand to The Netherlands. Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament is a hotel where guests can live, rather than stay and is perfect for families and business travellers looking for an extended stay option in one of Europe's most historic cities. Staybridge Suites has among the highest guest satisfaction rates of any of IHG's brands and we're delighted with the brand's Dutch debut in such a central and convenient location.”

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
