(Southampton, UK – 01 March 2013) Worldhotels is pleased to announce the latest addition to its portfolio, the Grand Harbour in Southampton, part of the Westmont Hospitality Group. The hotel overlooks the Southampton waterfront and Cruise Harbour and is known for its towering glass atrium, which gives the hotel’s facade its signature look.
The Grand Harbour’s 173 rooms offer inland as well as sea views and provide all amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. Additionally, guests can enjoy two restaurants both offering contemporary cuisine or the candle-lit spa. The meeting facilities can accommodate up to 500 people. The different meeting rooms can be set up in 12 different configurations and can be accessed via a separate entrance.
A nautical theme can be found throughout the hotel – for example, all of the meeting rooms are named after ships that sailed to America in 1620.
“The Grand Harbour is an excellent hotel in a key corporate location for us”, states Worldhotels’ Managing Director Robert Hornman. “We are very excited about this addition to our portfolio.”
Rob van der Beek, Senior Director of Hotel Development, adds, “The hotel offers everything business travellers and meeting planners are looking for – yet it still maintains that quirky uniqueness we look for in our hotels.”
The hotel’s General Manager, Steve Grant, is looking forward to partnering with Worldhotels: “What we need is a global player with a strong Sales force worldwide, but one that lets us stay who we are. We’ve found Worlhotels to be a perfect partner.”
