Ginger Hotels, the chain of Smart Basics hotels from Roots Corporation Limited, has launched its second property in Chennai. The hotel was inaugurated by Venu Srinivasan, Chairman of TVS Motor Company Ltd and Sundaram Clayton Ltd. While the first Ginger Hotel in Chennai at IITM Research Park caters to the corporate segment in the southern part of the city near the IT corridor, the second hotel aims to address the need of business travellers and entrepreneurs of small and medium businesses in the northern part of the city.
Speaking at the launch, Prabhat Pani, Chief Executive Officer & Director, Roots Corporation Limited, said, “We are immensely happy to open our second hotel in Chennai, a metro that is fast becoming the pre-eminent business centre of South India. The first Ginger Hotel has been well received in Chennai as it holds tremendous potential for this innovative category of hotels. The new hotel will meet the needs of business travellers visiting Chennai.”
The 79-room hotel is centrally air-conditioned. Each room comes equipped with an electronic lock, a work area, and a 22-inch LCD television with satellite channels, direct-dial telephone including STD facility, a mini-fridge and a tea/coffee maker. The new Ginger is also well-equipped with a meeting room and a gymnasium to ensure a pleasant experience. Guests will find their stay even more comfortable with Ginger’s technologically advanced room locking system that ensures total safety and privacy, two of the biggest concerns of all travellers.
