The Westin Hyderabad Mindspace
Dietmar Kielnhofer, General Manager, The Westin Hyderabad Mindspace, says the hotel promotes wellness in travel
Hyderabad is a known convention city. How does The Westin Hyderabad Mindspace benefit from this?
It is a combinations of several things,. With 427 rooms we are the hotel with the largest room inventory in Hyderabad, coupled with a great location, outstanding culinary capabilities and diverse function venues. For instance, we can provide outdoor catering in our Westin Lawn, spread over an area of 4,830 sqft for up to 700 people. I refer to our lawn and pool as an ‘oasis in the city’.
What is the USP of the hotel?
Most notable is the ability of our associates to deliver on a consistent basis a high level of personalised service. Our affiliation to a worldclass brand like Westin with a unique culture promoting wellness in travel that places the customer in the front and centre in everything we do. That, coupled with world class reservation system is very difficult to beat. Last but not the least, our location in the heart of Raheja I.T Park, gives us an advantage like none other.
What kind of events, conferences and business meetings take place in the hotel?
As per what the definition of MICE states, we cater to multiple events like social weddings. For the exhibition section, we host prestigious events like the ‘Times Property Show’, ‘Education Fares’, ‘Luxury Exhibition Shows’ to name a few. In the
case of conferences we cater to large corporate sections with their company inductions, leadership management programmes, team building and engagement activities as well.
How does it stand apart from the competitors?
Having a superior product provides you certainly with a competitive edge but it is also the consistent product and service innovation coupled with a culture that rewards our associates who deliver on a frequent basis a very unique and differentiate service experience that sets us apart from our competitors.
What are the facilities for this in terms of space, technology, F&B, special requests, recreation?
From a ballroom to state-of-the art video conference facilities, to several breakout rooms all on the same floor we can provide everything that a modern MICE organiser requires. We facilitate with a large outdoor lawn area where we can accommodate another 700 people with diverse set-up arrangements. We opened a Moroccan themed outdoor lounge at our terrace with an open area, where we could cater with very unique set ups for another 500 people.

For recreation enthusiasts we have two modern health clubs, a Spa, and an outdoor 25 meter long lap pool.
