HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 21 September 2018 - Thanks to the launch of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High Speed Rail, travelling between Hong Kong and 44 major cities in China has never been easier; business and leisure travellers from Hong Kong and China are able to enjoy a much shorter travel time and cost. In light of this, Dorsett Hospitality International (DHI), one of the Asia's fastest-growing hotel groups based in Hong Kong, aims to expand its "City Convenience" promise to let all guests experience a seamless holiday or workcation wherever they are, as long as they stay with Dorsett.
Adding A Dash of Surprise for Guests Arriving at the Cities by High Speed Train
Bringing City Convenience to life - one of the 5 attributes of Dorsett brand promise -- Stay Vibrant, business and leisure travellers will find it extra convenient as they will be able to travel across cities via the high-speed rail service directly -- while the 10 hotels in Hong Kong and 4 hotels in China under our three brands -- Dorsett, d.Collection, and Silka, are ready to welcome guests arriving at the cities with a complimentary bottle of house wine.
The Express Rail Link to City Convenience, and the Vibrant Experience
"The new high-speed rail service marks a significant milestone in the tourism industry. With most visitiors arriving in Hong Kong being from mainland China, this service will be of great benefit to them, as is our hotels' free shuttle service to Kowloon Station, which is connected to the Hong Kong West Kowloon Station."
"Hong Kong travellers will also benefit as it gets easier for them to travel to fabulous places in China like Chengdu, Wuhan, and Shanghai where Dorsett hotels are located. Allowing guests to explore the vibrant local neighbourhood effortlessly with the perfect location of the hotels, they will be thrilled by the city convenience we provide,"says Ms Anita Chan, Senior Vice President of Brand Marketing.
Earlier on, DHI introduces a new brand promise "Stay Vibrant" for the Dorsett brand with the aim to deliver a vibrantly unique experience to all guests through its 5 brand attributes and City Convenience is one of them.
"If you've ever stayed in any Dorsett hotel before, you'll know that we love to delight our guests in any way we can, in this case, a free bottle of house wine. Imagine after travelling on a high-speed train, you're welcomed by a team of courteous hotel staff with a bottle of house wine in your room. This costs us very minimal, but to our guests, a little touch can go a long way," she continues.
