MICE is one-point agenda at Four Points
Four Points by Sheraton New Delhi is a 70-room property that sprawls over nine acres. Set amidst lush green lawns and beautiful landscape, the hotel plays host to business and leisure travellers who enjoy its natural environment and surroundings.
Located strategically in Delhi, the hotel is minutes away from Indira Gandhi International Airport as well as the business hub of Gurgaon. Well designed and carefully appointed rooms cater to every need of the discerning guest. The Eatery our multicuisine restaurant boasts of its ever popular buffet spread, as well as International cuisine from its A la Carte menu.
The banquet halls with vast lawns are ideal for hosting conferences and social functions. The hotel has earned a reputation of being a leader in presenting some of the best in cuisine the city has to offer.
The hotel has performed well from its inception in 2012 and has shown a steady growth year-onyear. Having stabilised well, it is a clear leader in its competitive set. The financial year of 2016 has been exciting with high occupancies and increased RevPAR's. We hope to see similar growth in 2017. One of our key focus areas continues to be the MICE segment. In respect of MICE the hotel has
had a dream run despite many new hotels having opened in the vicinity. Increased infrastructure to manage large conventions in the area is likely to bring more business to all the players within the region of the airport.
Another important segment is the business traveller, both from within India and overseas. This ever increasing segment, thanks to the vibrant Indian economy will remain a main stay.
The frequently asked question is that of challenges faced by the hospitality industry. Without doubt it is about acquisition and retention of good skill. We at Four Points constantly engage with the teams at all levels to contain attrition. Training and inculcating best practices play a major role in keeping employee morale high.
Four Points by Sheraton New Delhi should see a lot happening in 2017. We plan to start work on adding an additional 100 rooms, a 10,000 sq. ft. banquet hall and increased Food & Beverage services.
