Business Traveller (India) - - UPFRONT -

Vado­dara’s Surya Palace ho­tel has been re­branded to Grand Mer­cure Vado­dara Surya Palace.

Grand Mer­cure is the up­scale brand of hos­pi­tal­ity group Ac­corHo­tels that has made its de­but in Gu­jarat with this re­brand­ing. Surya Palace was launched in the city 30 years ago by Jin­dal Hotels.

Jean-Michel Cassé, the chief oper­at­ing of­fi­cer: In­dia and South Asia at Ac­corHo­tels said,“The re­brand­ing to Grand Mer­cure Vado­dara Surya Palace gives us an op­por­tu­nity to show­case the prop­erty as our 48th ho­tel in the coun­try and high­light Ac­corHo­tels’ grow­ing net­work in the re­gion. It fur­ther strength­ens our pres­ence in Gu­jarat as Ac­corHo­tels’ first up­scale prop­erty in the state and West In­dia.”

The 146-key prop­erty in­cludes five suites and spe­cially as­signed rooms for sin­gle lady trav­ellers. Each ac­com­mo­da­tion fea­tures tea/ cof­fee mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties, mini­bar, free water bot­tles and free wifi.

Grand Mer­cure Vado­dara Surya Palace is lo­cated within prox­im­ity to the city’s busi­ness dis­trict, it is a two-minute drive from the rail­way sta­tion and ten min­utes from the air­port.

It has two F&B op­tions. Azure is the all-day din­ing restau­rant that has an In­dian and in­ter­na­tional a la carte menu and buf­fet. Vanilla is the del­i­catessen on the prop­erty and is open for lunch and din­ner. Recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties in­clude an out­door swim­ming pool and a gym.

The ho­tel’s event and con­fer­ence space in­cludes a large pil­lar­less ball­room and six meet­ing rooms.

Speak­ing at the launch of the prop­erty, Rajesh Gopalakr­ish­nan, the gen­eral man­ager of Grand Mer­cure Vado­dara Surya Palace said,“With a dis­tinc­tive port­fo­lio of ac­com­mo­da­tion, din­ing des­ti­na­tions and MICE fa­cil­i­ties, we are set to de­fine new stan­dards of hos­pi­tal­ity and look for­ward to cater to the city’s grow­ing tourism and busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Later this year, Ac­corHo­tels will open a Grand Mer­cure in Dwarka. ac­corho­
