Choosing to cut the pricey frills
HOTELS like The Capital Pearls are reinventing the way people travel.
“Not only is it 25% less expensive, it offers more space,” said Marc Wachsberger, managing director of The Capital Apartments and Hotels.
Wachsberger said the launch of Capital Pearls was part of the hotel group’s national expansion.
“Apartment hotels are the best of both worlds. We offer all the amenities of a hotel, but also include a self-catering component in our rooms.
“We want to create a homeaway-from-home feeling, especially for travellers who want to stay for extended periods,” Wachsberger said.
He said Capital Apartments and Hotel had cut out the unnecessary frills, and allowed guests the ability to choose their experiences.
So travellers may not get a turn down service or slippers, but their rates will be much cheaper than normal hotel rates.
Wachsberger says that many leisure travellers have visited the hotel since its opening, and loved the concept.
“We had an incredible opening. The response was great and we will continue to follow the trends that our clients want.
“We have another four months until our 32-storey building is complete, but we are quite excited to see what happens next,” he said.
