LEMON TREE LAUNCHES THE TWIN HOTELS WITH 70% WORK STAFF DIFFERENTLY-ABLED
Before I write to announce something which will arouse your goose bumps, I have a question? Have you heard a branded Hotel employ more than half of their staff to be differently abled? No, even I had the same reaction. The Lemon Tree Hotel Company is well known for its outstanding service standards and has a remarkable mark in the hospitality Industry. There are 4 brands under the umbrella of The Lemon Tree Hotel Company- Lemon Tree Premier (upscale), Lemon Tree Resorts (leisure), Lemon Tree Hotels (midscale) and Red Fox Hotels (economy). Recently, they announced the formal opening of its twin properties in Gurugram, thereby becoming the largest owner of hotel rooms in the millennium city.
The Twin hotels- Lemon Tree Hotel and Red Fox Hotel at Sector 60 have been designed on the principles of universal design offering specially designed rooms and suites for people of all abilities. With the opening of this new property, Lemon Tree Hotels now owns and operates 40 hotels in 23 cities with over 4100 rooms and over 4500 employees.
It was amazing to learn that over 70% of the work staff in Lemon Tree Hotel, Sector 60 will be Opportunity Deprived Individuals (ODI) i.e. either differently-abled or those from economically and socially marginalised segments of society. This enormous 3.2 acres property brags a 20,000 sq.ft. Convention Centre, with commercial and office space, making it the largest accessible MICE destination.
The collective inventory of both the hotels is just under 400 rooms & is located just off Golf Course Extension Road and a short distance from the key business hubs. The colourful & vibrant ambience and interiors of Lemon Tree promise joy to its buoyant guests.
The food is lip-smacking, services and facilities are immaculate and warm. We ate the lavish breakfast and lunch. A wide variety of snacks, main course and desserts were displayed. It was all yummy. We also encountered the service staff who were differently abled. It was a delight to have them around us like a normal human being.
Speaking on this occasion, Vikramjit Singh, President, Lemon Tree Hotels said: “We are delighted to reach a milestone of six hotels in the city. Gurugram continues to attract business and leisure travellers throughout the year and the launch of these twin properties along with a Convention Center only brings to fore the potential of this market and LTH’s successful run here.”
These hotels imbibe on the principles of universal design, allowing people of varying abilities to access all areas of the hotel with ease. Not only these hotels are 100% accessible for people of all abilities but are also run by a special team.
There are specially designed room and multiple suites for differently-abled guests. This makes a great news for humanity!
This is the first venture where 70% of the hotel staff in Lemon Tree Hotel, Sector 60 is either from the Economically and Socially marginalised segments of the society (EcoSoc) or differently-abled (Employees with Disability).
Aradhana Lal, Vice President, Sustainability Initiatives, Lemon Tree Hotels explains: “We truly believe in mainstreaming and including people with disabilities and those from the marginalised segments of our employee base and provide them with the same opportunities as others in order to realise their full potential. This launch is special to us. We are proud to introduce our new hotels in Sector 60, Gurugram run by a truly special team”
Lemon Tree hotel has an inventory of 104 stylish rooms and suites, a 24×7 multi-cuisine coffee shop – Citrus Café and a hip recreation bar – Slounge in addition to a business centre, a fitness Gym and open-air swimming pool.
Red Fox Hotel, Sector 60 is an economy business hotel and offers 154 smart rooms and suites, a multi-cuisine coffee shop – Clever Fox Café, a Cyber Kiosk, an efficient meeting room, a well-equipped fitness centre and laundry service. The hotel welcomes guests with its fresh bold interiors as well as crisp and clean rooms and delights with its unbeatable value and reliable safety standards. I found the door’s number plate very interesting.
The hotels are easily accessible from HUDA Metro Station, Leisure Valley and Sector 29 which are the happening areas of the city, besides being 20 minutes away from Signature Towers, IFFCO Chowk and the Mall mile on MG Road.
So when you are looking for a break from your regular routine and want to be close to the vicinity of Delhi then come and stay here. A dip in the pool of Lemon Tree Hotel will ease your fatigue.
