Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport: Hallmark of hospitality

Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport is the first refreshed Holiday Inn in India. Conveniently located from both international (1.2 km) and domestic airport (5 km), it is an ideal destination for business travelers. With the opening of the new international terminal, it is now the closest hotel from the international airport.

Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport is part of a worldwide effort by Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts to create a new identity and establish new brand hallmarks that will deliver a more consistent quality and contemporary image for the brand with a global reputation for service, comfort and value.

Among the new Holiday Inn hallmarks are the arrival, welcome, sleep and bath experience. Enhanced design elements have been adopted at the entrance of the hotel to create a welcome with a strong branded sense of arrival that is universally recognised. Some of the elements include: new refreshingly looking logo, the green brand colour facade beam lights, signature landscape planters. The relaunch has improved quality and service levels and drive consistency creating a new, more contemporary brand image for the hotel.

Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport offers today’s business and leisure travellers dependability, friendly services and modern, attractive facilities at an excellent value and at convenient location providing the services a business traveller needs, while also offering leisure travellers a comfortable, casual atmosphere where they can relax.

Holiday Inn Mumbai is aesthetic and reflects grandeur from the very entrance, upon the driveway via a landscape entrance and the grand porte cochere. An aesthetic landscape podium welcomes the guests where the double height entrance lobby and coffee shop lend an experience of regalia. A standalone reception and front office in the lobby is visible from all of the double-height atrium and a grand staircase emerges from a water body connecting the two public levels.

A neutral palette of beige and browns dominates much of the space and is seen ubiquitously throughout the hotel. Italian marble flooring, semi circular colored glass chandeliers, one large cascading crystal chandelier and a huge painting are a few of the elements that comprise the 21 ft ground to ceiling lobby.

Facilities include rooftop infinity pool, gymnasium, executive lounge and business centre, three F&B outlets, Saptami, the all-day dining multi-cuisine restaurant, 72 – a chic bar at the lobby , Saptami express – offering fresh deli and 24 hrs in room dining services.

Saptami, the multi-cuisine all-day dining restaurant is one of the most elegant and stylish coffee shops. The restaurant is upholstered in cherry and red fabric with circular and square marble tables having a steel and wooden base. One corner of the restaurant sports long dark wooden panels that go all the way up to the ceiling while another artistically displays a collage of black and white candid photographs of the staff.

72 is a chic lounge bar. The interiors are warm and welcoming with back-painted glass turning into an attractive leisure spot with swiveling bar stools, generous and casual brown couches with velvet touches and warm wooden tones.

The hotel offers one of the best conferencing and banqueting facilities in the city and can accommodate 500+ guests in its spacious and refreshingly designed ballrooms. The hotel has over 4000 sq ft of pillar less conference and banqueting facility with a 24-feet high ceiling and magnificent chandeliers. The Chinese motif white chandeliers change into seven different hues jazzing up the area. The walls are a mix of fabric and wooden paneling. Equipped with superior technology, it can be divided into three soundproof sections. The ballroom has a foyer to host coffee breaks and lunches. There are six other meeting rooms of similar fashion sans the chandeliers which can accommodate 20-50 people. These meeting rooms also have a foyer that enables tea/coffee breaks and lunches. The hotel offers generous open air facilities. Adjacent to the ballroom is an open air ballroom terrace that can accommodate 140 people. Beside the open air rooftop infinity pool is the sky terrace, an ideal venue, with panoramic views of the city below for that perfect evening gathering for 150-200 people.

Holiday Inn Mumbai not only goes all out to target the business traveller with a technological edge but is a new age hotel that has an ecologically-conscious heart as well. Hotels have changed dramatically in the recent years. Brands try to keep ahead of the competition by introducing new in-room gadgets, extending bathroom facilities etc. The designs are made keeping in mind the demographics and sensibilities of people who patronise the hotel.

The seven-storied splendid building which is situated at North Mumbai’s commercial hub, Sakinaka, Andheri East has 245 well appointed rooms. The rooms are subtly done up in Italian marble flooring, brown and white carpets, gold curtains and a clutter-free glass platform work desk with a black leather chair. Each room also has a comfortable couch where a guest can relax or enjoy a hot cuppa. The bed is fuss-free with a beige and brown headboard that extends all the way to the ceiling. The beds have premium white bedding and pillows with individual tags that offer guests to choose their preferred type of pillow. This allows the guests more control over the comfort of their sleep experience. Bathrooms are integral part of the customer experience and designers are opening up bathrooms through increased light and space. Transparent glass used in the bathroom makes it seem like a part of the room and enhances the feeling of space. A switch which controls the blinds of the bathroom window is provided next to the shower cubicle for privacy.

All the rooms have Wi Fi for high speed connectivity. Moreover, the LCD screens in each room are retractable and have a media hub. This gives an option to a person to view his power point presentations on the large LCD screen fitted in his room rather than on his laptop. iPod docking station, room temperature monitor and an individual air conditioning control are the other basic features.
