is where Tree Leaf steps in. I be­lieve that many small stand­alone prop­er­ties lack the abil­ity and band-width to po­si­tion their prop­erty ef­fec­tively on so­cial me­dia and in the on­line space, both of which are crit­i­cal for suc­cess. Brand­ing, rep­u­ta­tion man­age­ment, web­site de­vel­op­ment and up-gra­da­tion are also not given the im­por­tance they de­serve,” says Anand.

Haveli Dharam­pura by Wel­comHer­itage re­cently opened its doors at Chandni Chowk in New Delhi. The haveli in par­tic­u­lar dates to 1887 AD. It has 13 rooms which in­clude three Jharokha rooms, four Di­wan-e-Khas rooms and six Shah Ja­han suites. It has two restau­rants, ‘Lakhori’ and rooftop ‘Baradari’, serv­ing In­dian, Mughlai, Con­ti­nen­tal and lo­cal street food.

Talk­ing about the USP of the prop­erty, Siddhant Goel, Owner, Haveli Dharam­pura, says, “it’s not ex­actly a ho­tel but a mon­u­ment in it­self. It will be a very dif­fer­ent and new ex­pe­ri­ence for all the guests. This is a place where one can stay, eat, or­gan­ise ex­hi­bi­tions and cul­tural pro­grammes. One can feel calm amidst the chaos of Chandni Chowk.” Goel says they are in­volv­ing travel agents to at­tract for­eign as well as do­mes­tic vis­i­tors.

Vi­jay Goel, Pres­i­dent, Her­itage In­dia Foun­da­tion, and For­mer Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment re­calls that they took over the two cen­turies old prop­erty when it was in a de­plorable con­di­tion. “With six years of hard work, we have been able to re­store it. One can ex­pe­ri­ence the true am­bi­ence of a haveli here as we have in­cluded out­door ac­tiv­i­ties like ka­bootar­bazi (pi­geon fly­ing) and patang­bazi (kite fly­ing),” he says.

Su­nil Gupta, CEO, Wel­comHer­itage Ho­tels, says to flag this haveli is a mo­ment of pride for them. “Wel­comHer­itage is right now op­er­at­ing 42 prop­er­ties. Our cur­rent agenda is to spread the brand and open prop­er­ties in lo­ca­tions where we are not present like in Kar­nataka, Odisha, UP and MP,” he adds.

Su­nil Sikka, Head­Mar­ket­ing & Busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, Wel­comHer­itage Ho­tels, is op­ti­mistic about this prop­erty in the heart of the na­tional cap­i­tal. “We are happy that we have some­thing in the heart of the city which we never had. Ev­ery­body is thrilled about the prop­erty and I am sure that this haveli will be the most pop­u­lar one in Delhi and will def­i­nitely do well.”
