The group believes there is far more headroom for growth especially for global midscale hotel brands that cater to value-conscious travellers
TRAVELODGE Hotels Asia Pte Ltd (TLA) is ramping up its expansion in Malaysia with the recent debut of its fourth hotel, Travelodge Ipoh in Perak.
As the country pushes for a huge tourism drive with an ambitious target of attracting 30 million international visitors and RM100 billion in tourist receipt for Visit Malaysia 2020 (VM2020), there is far more headroom for growth especially for global midscale hotel brands that cater to valueconscious travellers.
Travelodge Ipoh is situated close to the city’s business district and famous tourist attractions such as Concubine Lane, Mural Art’s Lane, Perak Tong Cave Temple, Kellie’s Castle and Gua Tempurung. It offers 268 newly refurbished rooms, two meeting rooms, three ballrooms and a grand ballroom, making it an ideal venue for meetings, incentives, conferencing and exhibition.
TLA MD Marcus Aw said: “We are thrilled to kick off 2020 with the opening of the fourth TLA hotel in Malaysia in less than 18 months. Our entry into Ipoh is fuelled by our confidence in the city’s growth prospects to become one of the country’s top destinations in the coming years.
With the opening of its fourth property in less than 18 months, TLA is affirming its commitment and confidence in the Malaysian hotel market.
Travelodge Bukit Bintang was opened in 2018, and subsequently three properties have quickly been established in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Ipoh — namely Travelodge City Centre, Travelodge George Town and now Travelodge Ipoh.
A globally recognised brand with 80 years of history, Travelodge Hotels Ltd has an international network of more than 1,000 hotels around the world. In Asia, the brand is independently owned and managed by TLA.
Its properties are always in close proximity to vibrant neighbourhoods or near transport hubs, offering doorstep access to a myriad of things to see, do and explore. Highspeed complimentary WiFi will also keep guests connected throughout their stay.
