Travelodge Hotels Asia Expands in Seoul With Opening of Travelodge Myeongdong

Singapore, Singapore City. August 07, 2019

Travelodge Hotels Asia continues its rapid growth with the opening of Travelodge Myeongdong Euljiro in the heart of Seoul's tourism district. This is the Group's second hotel in Seoul, bringing the Travelodge hotels portfolio to ten in two years.

Like all Travelodge hotels in Asia, Travelodge Myeongdong Euljiro is located at the centre of action - in this case, in close proximity to some of the city's most popular tourist attractions - and promises a value-for-quality, no-fuss experience that delivers everything the independent savvy traveller needs.

This select service hotel offers 224 rooms in three categories - Standard Twin, Superior Twin and Superior Double. Other amenities include The Lodge Restaurant, which guests can use as an all-day social and working space, 24-hour fitness centre and self-service laundromat. High- speed complimentary internet, locally-inspired touches within the hotel as well as genuine, friendly service completes the experience.

Nearby attractions include the Myeongdong Shopping Street, the Gyeongbokgung Palace, the Myeongdong Cathedral, the Gwangjang Market, the Cheongyecheon Stream and the N Seoul Tower. Other than the N Seoul Tower, which is only ten minutes by car, the other five attractions are all within ten minutes' walk from the hotel, allowing guests access to awe-inspiring history, scenic sights and mouth-watering local street food with ease.

"We are delighted to open our second property in Seoul in just six months, which is strong market validation for what we have to offer - a great product in an unbeatable location, enabling our guests the ease and convenience to explore the city while providing the assurance of a high- quality stay experience," says Marcus Aw, Managing Director of Travelodge Hotels Asia. "As domestic demand increases along with the continued attraction of Seoul for international leisure travellers, this will continue to be a priority market for us as we accelerate our growth in Asia."

Travelodge Hotels Asia is the fastest growing regional hotel company, with ten hotels opened in two years across seven cities in Asia, including Bangkok, Batam, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Pattaya, Penang and Seoul. The company aims to grow to 100 hotels by 2030, capturing the mid-scale select service segment in capital cities and key destinations in Asia.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
