Widnes Travelodge fitted with new luxury beds
WIDNES Travelodge is one of the first of 500 hotels to receive a facelift as part of a £57 million refurbishment.
The hotel which opened in Fiddlers Ferry Road in 1996 has been revamped in just one week.
A luxury king size bed, a larger desk, new carpet, artwork and a stylish white contemporary en-suite bathroom have been fitted in each of the 52 rooms.
Susan Riley, Widnes Travelodge Hotel manager said: “We are very excited to have been selected as one of the first hotels across the Travelodge estate to benefit from this investment.
“The work was carried out with no disturbance to our day to day operation and the feedback we have received from customers has been outstanding.
"Everyone loves the new warm, contemporary feel of our new room and there is no doubt the hero of the room is definitely the Travelodge Dreamer bed.
“The demand for good quality branded budget accommodation in the area is growing at great pace and now that we have a new room design we are offering even greater value in the local marketplace.”
The work at Widnes Travelodge is part of a company wide brand investment of £223 million this year.
By the end of the year, Travelodge plans to have refitted more than 50% of all its rooms. By autumn 2014, 85% of Travelodge’s estate will incorporate the new room design, meaning the makeover will see an average of more than 50 rooms refurbished every single day for the next 18 months.
One million man hours will go into the refit, along with 60,000 tins of paint and 30,000 new beds, enough to cover nine football pitches.
The refurbishment follows 12 months of extensive research with Travelodge customers to create an inviting, functional and relaxing room for business and leisure travellers.
