10th Park Plaza opens in Zirakpur
A 104-key full service hotel, the upscale Park Plaza Zirakpur is the Sarovar Groups’ 67th property in India and 5th property in Punjab.
Other Sarovar hotels in the state include two hotels in Chandigarh - Park Plaza and Hometel, and two properties in Ludhiana - Park Plaza and City Heart Sarovar Portico.
The Park Plaza Zirakpur is located 6 km from the Chandigarh Airport and 9 km from the railway station. It is located on the Ambala-Chandigarh National Highway-21, which also connects Zirakpur with Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh.
Anil Madhok, MD, Sarovar Hotels and Resorts, speaking at the launch, said “We intend to look at the MICE market and product launches. We cannot let weddings go away, which is one of the biggest businesses in Punjab. Zirakpur is a rapidly-developing satellite township of Chandigarh. In addition, Zirakpur is also known as the wedding capital of Punjab, and Park Plaza will offer the largest banqueting facility in the tri-city (i.e. Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula).”
Talking about other Sarovar properties in Punjab, he said, “In both the hotels, we find that banqueting is doing very well and is an extremely important market. Our Hometel brand does not have banqueting, but we added the same in Chandigarh; because in Punjab, banqueting is a big business.”
Puneet Saigal, GM, Park Plaza Zirakpur, said that the hotel has 104 keys with three categories: Deluxe, Superior and Residential suites with multiple onsite dining options. “We have a capacity to handle 10 to 3,000 guests. The USP of the hotel is its largest banqueting space in the tri-city.”
GS Virk, Owner, Park Plaza Zirakpur, said that it’s been a three year journey for them to build the hotel and they are looking forward to increasing the brand-value of the hotel.
