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.”

Mobile Technology: The Future is Now

Mobile Technology continues to advance at a relentless pace and the hotel industry continues to adapt. Hotel guests have shown a strong preference for mobile self-service - from checking-in/out at a hotel kiosk, to ordering room service, making dinner reservations, booking spa treatments, and managing laundry/dry cleaning services. And they also enjoy the convenience of paying for these services with smart phone mobile payments. In addition, some hotels have adopted a “concierge in your pocket” concept. Through a proprietary hotel app, guests can access useful information such as local entertainment venues, tourist attractions, event calendars, and medical facilities and services. In-room entertainment continues to be a key factor, as guests insist on the capacity to plug in their own mobile devices to customize their entertainment choices. Mobile technology also allows for greater marketing opportunities. For example, many hotels have adopted the use of “push notifications” - sending promotions, discounts and special event messages to guests based on their property location, purchase history, profiles, etc. Near field communication (NFC) technology is also being utilized to support applications such as opening room doors, earning loyalty points, renting a bike, accessing a rental car, and more. Finally, some hotels have adopted more futuristic technology. Robots are in use that have the ability to move between floors to deliver room service requests for all kinds of items - food, beverages, towels, toothbrushes, chargers and snacks. And infrared scanners are being used by housekeeping staff that can detect body heat within a room, alerting staff that the room is occupied and they should come back at a later time. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in this exciting mobile technology space.
