Shangri-La Penang to be Traders Hotel
By Regina William

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts, Asia Pacific's leading luxury group, as part of its rebranding exercise will rebrand the Shangri-La Hotel Penang as the Traders Hotel, Penang effective April 1.

Having experienced its most successful year to date in 2005, and through worldwide expansion and emerging as an increasing strong force on the international hotel scene, the group is repositioning itself for greater strength.

Shangri-La Penang general manager Elaine Yue said Shangri-La was creating clearer distinctions between the brands, Shangri-La and Traders, to ensure that each individual hotel was able to maximise its potential and grow with the group as a whole.

"As part of this initiative, our 442-room Shangri-La Hotel Penang will be rebranded as the Traders Hotel, Penang.

"This rebranding will set the foundation for the hotel's long term competitiveness in the global market.

"Commitment to customer and employee loyalty and satisfaction will remain the prime focus at Traders Hotel, Penang," she said.

Malaysians need to familiarised with more global brandings. Traders had been around in Singapore for ages and its presence in many other countries such as China, UAE, Philippines etc.....since 1989

ANyway I do not blame your fren's sis frustration on the name change as they are actually downgrading the branding a bit. But I believe it is not Shangri-La's fault perhaps because maybe the building owner doesn't wanna invest more in the hotel thus the operator had to downgrade it a lil

But then again Traders isn't all that bad ...just that it isn't as recognisable and visible as Shangri-La

Anyway hotel invites are usually printed by the hotel so the hotel would do the necessary arrangements I guess
