Lemon Tree Hotels strengthens their hold in Delhi NCR with opening of Twin Hotel with Convention Centre at Gurugram

Lemon Tree Hotel Company (LTHC), leading Indian domestic hotel chain, has further strengthened their hold in the hospitality space of Delhi NCR region in general and Gurugram (erstwhile Gurgaon) in particular with the opening of twin Hotels– Lemon Tree and Red Fox – with a dedicated Convention facility – at Sector 60, Gurugram.

The two hotels together offer 258 rooms and suites and over 20,000 sqft of dedicated convention block with commercial and office space, claimed to be the largest accessible MICE destination in Delhi NCR. Spread in 4.5 acres, the hotels and convention complex is located away from the hustle bustle of the city just off the Golf Course Extension Road and from the business hubs of the city.

While Lemon Tree Hotel has 104 guest rooms and suites with a multi-cuisine coffee shop, Citrus Café, and hip recreation bar – Slounge, in addition to the business centre, fitness Gym and open air, swimming pool, Red Fox Hotel has 154 rooms and suites with multi-cuisine coffee shop – Clever Fox Café - a Cyber Kiosk, a meeting room, fitness centre, etc.

Speaking to Hospitality Biz, Vikramjit Singh, President, Lemon Tree Hotels said that they are quite “bullish” about the Gurugram market considering 50% of the world’s Fortune 500 companies has presence in the city, as well as there is huge hi-end and middle income residential market around. “With this opening, our count in Gurugram alone is 530 rooms, which is by far the largest for any hotel group in the city. All our hotels are doing good business upwards of 80% occupancy with a healthy ARR,” he stated. Singh said that the new hotel is flanked by huge captive market for corporate meetings and conferences as well as weddings and banquets by the residential belt around, as there is a vacuum in terms of convention space in the city.

In line with the hotel group’s policy of employing people with disabilities and underprivileged sections of the society, the company has recruited 70% of their staff in the newly opened properties from these sections, setting a model of sorts for the industry. Talking about this initiative, Aradhana Lal, Vice President, Sustainability Initiatives of the Hotel Group said that employing people who are differently abled is not part of any charity or CSR at Lemon Tree Hotels but well thoughtout business and HR strategy. There are business reasons to do that and has been appreciated by other team members as well as the guests and visitors to their properties, she said.

Across the group, there are 550 employees with physical disabilities, which is good 13% of the total staff strength of the company, and there are 310 people from economically or socially backward sections of the society, which comes to 7.5% of the payroll strength, she said.
