HVS International is delighted to congratulate Surinder Arora and his team at Arora Hotels.
HVS International is delighted to congratulate Surinder Arora and his team at Arora Hotels on their being selected to enter into exclusive negotiations to develop a 600-room, five-star flagship hotel to be linked to the new Terminal 5 (T5) at London's Heathrow Airport. Russell Kett, Managing Director of HVS International's London office, advised Arora throughout the bidding process, and felt that among the keys to Arora's successful bid were its focus on exceeding guests' expectations and its track record of delivering quality hotels on time and on budget. Arora's other hotels include three hugely successful aircrew-oriented hotels at Heathrow and Gatwick airports, and a new four-star hotel in Manchester city centre. BAA Lynton was advised by CBRE Hotels, and described the proposals for the new hotel as 'imaginative and creative'. The hotel, which is scheduled to open simultaneously with T5 in spring 2008, will operate as a Sofitel: the first franchise for Accor's luxury brand in Europe.
