'In order to compete effectively in the UAE's booming hospitality sector, we knew we would have to create a brand that wasn't just different or affordable, but one that truly understood a discerning business traveler's needs, namely proximity to business hubs, in-room conveniences and connectivity,' said Zoheb Hamirani, managing director, Grandeur Hotels.
'Being a new hotel chain, we have been able to take the benefit of all the emerging trends and put them into action and our first property is testament to the fact that we know our guests and what they want ,' he noted.

'We've truly thought of everything at Grandeur. The initial response to the hotel has been overwhelming and we are already running at 85 per cent occupancy. This bodes well for the future as we anticipate repeat visits, bearing in mind the universal fact that business travelers demonstrate greater brand loyalty,' Hamirani added.-TradeArabia News Service
