Eyeing a piece of domestic pie
Four Points by Sheraton Agra has eyes set on the domestic market, besides MICE and wedding sectors, claims General Manager, Paul Gomes.
“In a decade or so, the business in Agra has grown. There’s a lot of competition now as good hotel brands have come up in the city. There are a lot of opportunities in terms of hotel facilities at a good value of price which will definitely attract travellers from the domestic market,” he adds.
Gomes informs that he is looking at about 40 per cent growth from the domestic mar- ket and 20 per cent from international. The USP of the hotel is that half of the inventories of the hotel overlooks the Taj Mahal like the gym, the spa and most of the rooms. Even the recently opened roof-top restaurant at the hotel also gives a clear view of the iconic World Heritage Site.
Revealing more about the hotel, Vivek Mahajan, Resident Manager, Four Points by Sheraton Agra, says that the 165-key property is focusing on MICE and destination weddings, international, domestic as well as theme weddings. “During the months of October to March it is the agents’ season,” he says, adding, “The B2B partners are always helpful and we are focusing on all partners like B2B and MICE.”
