R HOTEL SHOWS OFF MODEL ROOMS
Kingston’s newest hotel hosted its first model rooms viewing, which took place in the form of a tour of the Standard Deluxe Room and the Standard Deluxe Room with Kitchenette multi-storey hotel located at 2 Renfrew Road, New Kingston.
The R Hotel incorporates a combination of exclusive rooms and suites and features several amenities and unique offerings making it ideal for the travelling business executive. Guests will also have the choice of four categories of rooms: the Standard Deluxe Rooms with or without kitchenette, the Penthouse Room with balcony and the Two-Bedroom Penthouse loft suite with balcony and kitchenette.
“The hotel provides suitable accommodations as it will operate as a business centre, to provide an ideal place for business people, with rooftop restaurant and bar, art gallery, meeting facilities, underground parking as well as a gym and rooftop lap pool,” says co-owner Evan Williams.
The hotel, which operates under the motto ‘Relax, Replenish, Return’, is artistically designed with furniture and visual art by local artistes such as Zoda, Zen designs, Beti Campbell, Maxine Gibson, to name a few; in full support of the “Brand Jamaica” initiative.
Speaking at the model rooms showing, Permanent Secretary in the Tourism Ministry, Mrs. Jennifer Griffith noted that…
“Thankfully the R will provide much needed rooms for travelling business persons and garner enhanced experiences for tourism not only for Kingston, but our island. The serious need for more hotel rooms is gradually being met with these high-end rooms being added to the room stock in Kingston.”
Evidence of environmental sensibility was also highlighted in the design of the double-glazed windows in the rooms to create greater efficiency in air conditioning and external noise reduction as well as solar heated water to guest rooms. Guests will also have access to high-speed readily available and resilient internet, voice, video and teleconferencing services, an integrated messaging system, and telephones with VoIP capabilities.
Commenting on his involvement in fulfilling the R Hotel’s development, Joe Bogdanovich, a major Investor for the R and several other high profile businesses on the island, noted that…
“I was responding to a clear demand for a hotel like this in Kingston; one that was precisely designed to provide the luxury, the convenience and the comfort essential for travelling business executives.”
“As we continue to aid Jamaica on the pathway to economic development, the R Hotel is anticipated to help ensure that travelling business visitors will always want to return to the Kingston and New Kingston area by providing a service they need,” he added.
Experience the finest Jamaican hospitality at the R Hotel, the first extended stay corporate hotel to be developed within the New Kingston area that will offer travelling business executives a calm, yet professional environment with high levels of luxury-infused accommodations and personalised services.
