APTDC to construct budget hotel at Hitec City

HYDERABAD: The APTDC has decided to construct a budget hotel near Inorbit Mall in Hitec City with special focus on catering to the needs of corporate companies.

There are many software and corporate companies in and around Hitec City and few luxury hotels do exist in the locality. However, all the existing hotels in the locality provide hospitality to senior and executive class corporate employees and there are hardly any hotels that serve the requirements of administrative, supervisory section employees. As a result, such employees stay around Banjara Hills, shelling out huge charges, but the proposed budget hotel will serve their needs, says APTDC Vice-Chairman and Managing Director Sandeep Kumar Sultania. Given the connectivity with Outer Ring Road and Shamshabad airport, the locality is ideal for such a hotel.

It would be a 100-room hotel built in an area of about 3,000 square yards under Public-Private-Partnership mode. The project is estimated to cost Rs. 15 crore. Already 15 firms have expressed their interest in taking up the project, he said. “Work orders would be issued in 45 days and we have set a deadline of two years for completing the project,” says Mr. Sultania.

Too Bad for Hyatt Hyderabad

http://www.hindu.com/2010/11/20/stor...2064960700.htm

Fire in hotel under construction




UNFORTUNATE:The damaged portion of Gayatri Hotel after a fire broke out in the building in Banjara Hills on Friday.

HYDERABAD: A major fire broke out in a star hotel under construction at Banjara Hills early on Friday, damaging property worth lakhs of rupees. However, no one was injured.

Flames erupted from the restaurant on the first-floor of the five-storeyed Gayatri hotel around 5 a.m. and spread to the fourth-floor. Even after reaching the locality in time, fire-fighters could not take up fire-fighting operation due to lack of proper access to the building.

They broke open the glass façade and began their operation. “It's was a difficult task for us to enter the building. We had to battle for more than five hours to douse the flames,” said District Fire Officer P. Deendayal.

Cigarette butt?

He said fire might have originated from a burnt cigarette butt thrown by some workers who attended interior decoration works in the restaurant till midnight on Thursday. Moreover, inflammable decorative material and wood stocked in the restaurant helped the flames spread to other floors, he said.

The Park hotel designed by SOM Architects just opened up on November 11.

More pictures here

The Park Hotel Hyderabad, Designed By Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Opens
New Building Combines High-Performance Design with Local Culture

November 11, 2010 (New York NY) -- Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM), the New York-based architectural firm, has recently completed The Park Hotel Hyderabad, the flagship hotel for The Park Hotel Group. This 531,550-square-foot, 270-room hotel infuses a modern, sustainable design with the local craft traditions, and is influenced by the region’s reputation as a center for the design and production of gemstones and textiles.



Roger Duffy, SOM’s Partner in Charge of the project, says, “This building signals our commitment to creating a design that simultaneously felt at home among the exuberant vernacular architecture of Hyderabad, while simultaneously incorporating the latest sustainable strategies and technologies.”

The project is distinctive for its profound implementation of sustainable design strategies, with special attention paid to the building’s relationship to its site, daylighting and views. Solar studies influenced the site orientation and building massing, with program spaces concentrated in the north and south facades, and service circulation on the west to reduce heat gain. The hotel rooms are raised to allow more expansive views, situated on top of a podium comprised of retail spaces, art galleries, and banquet halls open to guests and visitors.



The building’s three sides wrap around an elevated central courtyard that can be accessed from the hotel lobby. This flexible outdoor area is protected from strong winds, and serves as an extension of the restaurants inside. It features a private dining court and a swimming pool, which can be seen from the adjacent areas and the nightclub below, with moving patterns formed by light passing through the pool’s water. The outdoor courtyard was designed to be a multifunctional space accessible from the lobby, restaurants, and bar that surround it. Elevated three stories above ground, this veranda provides views to Hussain Sagar Lake and the city.



The facade provides a range of transparency according to the needs of the spaces inside. Perforated and embossed metal screens over a high-performance glazing system give privacy to the hotel rooms while allowing diffused daylight to enter the interior spaces, and provides acoustic insulation from trains passing nearby. The opaque areas of the cladding shield the hotel’s service areas from public view. The shape of the facade’s openings, as well as the three-dimensional patterns on the screens themselves, were inspired by the forms of the metalwork of the crown jewels of the Nizam, the city’s historic ruling dynasty.

SOM designed many of the project’s interior spaces, including the lobbies, the lobby lounge, retail, and banquet halls. The interiors continue the jewelry concept – with silver, gold and gem tones throughout. Many of the interior surfaces, including the mosaics, reflect local designs, which were implemented by artists and craftsmen from the region.



Priya Paul, Chairperson of Apeejay Surrendra Park Hotels which owns The Park brand, describes The Park, Hyderabad as “a Modern Indian Palace, something refreshing and different that speaks to the aspirations of India today.”
Collaboration with manufacturers, fabricators, and researchers played a vital role in developing this low-energy prototype building, with data gathered in collaboration with the Stevens Institute of Technology’s Product Architecture Lab in Hoboken, New Jersey. As a result, the design team was able to reduce the building’s energy use by twenty percent. In addition, an on-site water treatment facility and sewage treatment plant process both gray water for reuse and waste water for release back into the city’s sewer system.



The project achieved the first LEED Gold certification for a hotel in India, and has been awarded Best New Hospitality Project of 2010 from Cityscape India. It also served as a case study for using a collaborative process to achieve an environmentally efficient design in Design Principles and Practices: An International Journal in 2009, and was the subject of a white paper written by the design team on the high-performance curtain wall system.

Live life in the Asaf Jahi era


The Park unveils the Nizamian ‘Osmania' with a touch of tradition and royalty



Regal grandeur: The hallway of the luxury suite ‘Osmania' in The Park Hotel.

HYDERABAD: The swank glass structure shimmering in lights with the majestic Hussainsagar Lake on the foreground has decided to up its own superlative design, albeit with a touch of tradition and royalty. The Park has unveiled the Nizamian ‘Osmania' resplendent with lavishly embroidered cushions taking inspiration from the jewels of yore.

The luxury suite in the seven star “modern palace” as Priya Paul, chairperson, Apeejay Surrendra Park Hotels Ltd., calls it has furniture replicated from the era of the French King Louis the XVIth including the canopy chair and cane woven chaise lounge. The embroidered tiger and leopard skin rugs add a royal touch to the suite.

Tables with arched legs, mirrored tops and usage of black vinyl, satin and velvet embroidered with crystals, gold and silver threads add to the old world grandeur. Chennai-based French textile designer Jean Francoise Lesage, who conceptualised the suite, explains that everything embroidered in the suite was handmade amounting 7,000 hours!

“The entire room took three months of research followed by actual designing using hundreds of Swaroski crystals. I was given total freedom and really enjoyed creating it and hope the guests too will enjoy staying in,” exclaims the Indophile.

“I have invited people from different backgrounds like Tarun Tahiliani, Manish Arora, Rohit Bal, Jean Francoise Lesage and others to add value to the hotel and this is one such special suite reflecting different ways of luxury living,” says Ms. Paul. She is happy with the Park located in the city centre and does not forget to point out that the Park's five star hotel in Visakhapatnam was A.P's first luxury hotel that came up way back in 1967. Soon the hotel's night club is to be thrown open here.

Hotel rates to fall a fifth as room supply overtakes demand

Published: Wednesday, Dec 29, 2010, 2:24 IST
Place: Mumbai, Bangalore | Agency: DNA

Hotel room rates are set to decline by 5-10% in 2011 and 13-18% in 2012 as a deluge of rooms hits the market.

Average room rates will decline across cities like National Capital Region (NCR), Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Pune, Jaipur, Kolkata and Ahmedabad, said a study conductedby Knight Frank, the hospitality and realty consultant.

Samantak Das, national head-research, Knight Frank, said demand won’t keep pace with supply.

“Many new hotels that were planned during the boom of 2007 will release inventories between 2011 and 2013. This will drive down the occupancy rates (percentage of rooms occupied) of hotels in most cities,” he said.

But business in Mumbai and Goa is expected to grow because of high demand and low incremental supply.

The room-rate decline will be felt more in upscale hotels, the report said.

Among other key markets to feel the oversupply heat include cities like Hyderabad and Chennai, While Hyderabad will witness 4,764 new hotel rooms coming up by 2013, more than 3,000 hotel rooms will get added to the existing supply of around 4,500 hotel rooms

Some hoteliers said supply and demand cycles keep occurring. “If oversupply continues for long, existing hotels will have to cut rates. However, the situation evens out in the long run and hospitality is a long-term business,” said the top offical from a leading international chain operating in the southern region, not wishing to be named.

Hyderabad hospitality sector cautious but upbeat

Likely to see significant capacity addition in 2011.



Positive start: New Hyatt Gayatri hotel buildings coming up in Hyderabad. —

Hyderabad, Dec 29

The hospitality sector in Hyderabad is shrugging off the slowdown blues and Telangana agitation-related concerns as it enters the New Year, even as it is poised to add significant fresh capacity during 2011.

If the year 2010 started with the T-storm brewing and students' agitations and a series of bandhs leading to cancellation of some of the major events and conventions, the year ended on a much positive note. However, the T-issue still looms large on not just the sector but also the State, which has seen relative slowdown in investment flow.

Players in the sector are looking at the year ahead with lot of hope and expectation that the Srikrishna Committee set up by the Centre to look into issues relating to creation of separate statehood of Telangana would be able to settle the issue once and for all removing all uncertainties. They hope this paves way for next phase of growth of the sector, the economy, vital to fuel the hospitality business.

New additions


While 2010 was marked by launch of several budget hotels, such as Quality Inn, Daspalla, Expotel, Nanotel, among others, it also was witness to addition of two large properties The Park and The Westin, the latter two equivalent to several small hotels with huge capacities.

Mr Ram Mishra, President Hotels and Restaurants Association of Andhra Pradesh and General Manager Fortune Park, said “Nothing much has really changed for the sector. The uncertainty over the creation of separate State or retaining it as a uniform State or having a separate Union territory has to be solved at the earliest. If this is done, there will be buoyancy in the economy, which spills over to hospitality.”

“In fact, hospitality sector is the first indicator of state of the economy. The sector has averaged over 50 per cent but holds much greater potential. There have been some patterns in terms of how business has come through.

Some of the hotels in and around the Hi-tech City have done relatively better than those located in the Central Business District,” Mr Mishra said.

According to Mr Vilas Pawar, Chief Executive Officer of Choice Hospitality, the group currently manages about 27 properties in the country and plans to add 15 more by next year. Of this at least two more will come up in Andhra Pradesh during next year. The company is upbeat on the prospects as budget hotels have managed to make a mark offering quality service at attractive rates. That is something a busy traveller relates to.

Mr Akesh Bhatnagar, General Manager, Golkonda Hotel, said “The twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad offer immense scope for growth for the hospitality business. While fresh capacity addition will provide more options to people, it takes a year or two for a new property to make a mark. That means hotels located in the CBD will continue to do well, provided they offer right value proposition to the customer.”

Mr P.K. Dutt, General Manager of Inner-Circle, and Secretary General of HRAAP, said that the city currently commands a total inventory of about 3,700 hotel rooms across all (3-4-5) star categories. In fact, the year 2011 is likely to see a significant capacity addition, estimated to be about 1,700 to 1,800 rooms across different format of hotels.

“However, with the overall occupancy levels ranging between 55-60, and relative sluggishness in the economy and hardly any fresh investments, the new addition will take some time to be absorbed. New projects, investments lead to more visitors and more investments into hospitality,” he felt.

More launches


The year 2010 had very interesting launches including the magnificent Taj Falaknuma Palace, The Westin, The Park in the luxury segment, The Leonia Convention centre and Hotel along with several budget hotels. In the pipeline during 2011 are Lemon Tree, Park Hyatt, Taj Vivanta, Sarovar, Royal Orchid, Green Park expansion projects and few other properties by some first time entrants into the hospitality business.

However, the New Year eve celebrations seem to be relatively low key affair thanks to the clouds over T-issue. Some have preferred new destinations to celebrate.
