SOUTHEAST ASIA is not a region that’s short of luxury and mid-range hotels. Whether beach resorts, state-of-the-art business hotels, or smaller boutique properties, tourists are offered a plethora of choices, served on a silver platter.
One of the more successful brands that has stood the test of time is Cititel brand. It began years ago with Cititel Penang, a four-star property conveniently located along upper Penang Road in the heart of Georgetown, the bustling capital of Malaysia’s northern state of Penang.
Since its launch, it has drawn tourists the world over, thanks in part to its proximity to the city’s quaint attractions and impressive water or heritage city views. This must-visit city should immediately be in your bucket list.
With Cititel Penang celebrating its 20th anniversary, the hotel is offering a 20 percent discount on online bookings. The hotel will also be giving away a gift voucher to redeem free nights to the first 20 guests who check in on the 18th of every month until December 18, 2017.
These days, Penang is also home to Cititel Express Penang, ideal for travelers looking for comfortable quarters that don’t break the bank. While the practicality and modern conveniences of the Cititel brand are still enjoyed, rooms here are more compact and affordable.
A particularly popular Cititel property is located in Mid Valley City, a one-stop leisure and entertainment center in Kuala Lumpur. Cititel Mid Valley currently offers 12 percent off its online rates.
Within KL City Centre is the MiCasa All Suite Hotel – a stylish tropical oasis; it offers easy access to embassies and multinational companies. Also be sure to check out special offers.
As you can probably already tell, Malaysia is home to many of CHM’s properties, justified by the country’s influx of inbound tourists.
Scaling up the luxury ladder, the group imported the St Giles brand from United Kingdom having made its name as the most strategic address in central London.
Today, the St Giles brand is also proving immensely popular, especially among business travelers. A case in point is The Boulevard – A St Giles Hotel, a modern, convenient property with easy access to Kuala Lumpur’s business districts.
For a limited period, enjoy a 15 percent discount on online bookings
For those who can splash out a bit more, next-door is the five-star The Gardens – A St Giles Signature Hotel & Residences that caters to both leisure and business travelers.
For longer stays and families, The Gardens Residences is the best choice especially with 20 percent discounts till March 31, 2017. Lavish buffets, glittery city views, and a sleek Executive Lounge can be ticked off your preferences list.
This Hotel is also known in Kuala Lumpur for some of the best restaurants in the city, particularly Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar, one of the pioneers of fine dining in the capital. Ri-Yakitori is also an excellent haunt for skewered meats alongside classic Japanese fare.
St Giles Makati – A St Giles Hotel in the heart of the Philippines’ financial capital pulls in its fair share of corporate travelers. Large shopping malls, top business process outsourcing (BPO) centers, and towering skyscrapers are located nearby the hotel, making for easy access. Take advantage of its super 25 percent online discount.
Selected St Giles properties will also be giving out limited period discounts. For instance, you can get a 25 percent slash at St Giles Makati or a 15 percent cut at The Gardens Hotel Wing. More information can be found at www.stgiles.com.
Reliability and convenient access seem to be running priorities within the brand, and if CHM and St Giles continue to dominate more key cities in the next few years, the market will be better for it, and ultimately, we will too.
