glh, the London-based hotel group and subsidiary of Singapore-listed GuocoLeisure Group, has revealed details of its new subsidiary Thistle Express.
Thistle Express is a new value hotel concept, with the first site due to open in London in 2016. The company says the new hotel brand will offer modern design, stylish bedrooms, friendly and efficient service, as well as super-fast unlimited free Wi-Fi for everyone – all at great value.
Mike DeNoma, CEO, glh, said: “You can no longer divide the market into travellers who only stay in economy hotels, versus those who stick to four or five star luxury. Thistle Express is a brand that caters for the modern traveller. Research told us that fast, free Wi-Fi is not just a luxury for luxury hotel guests, but is an expectation for economy hotel guests too. It’s about offering guests what they want, at that moment in time, for that specific stay.”
The company plans to open a further ten hotels over the next five years.
