Mantra is due to complete a $20million investment in refurbishments to their CBD hotels, demonstrating a commitment to offering a quality business travel product to complement the group’s well known leisure offerings.
The extensive refurbishment program across seven of Mantra’s 21 CBD properties commenced in July 2011 and is the first phase of a two year investment to upgrade city hotel product. The investment will be complemented by the ongoing Mantra brand campaigns featuring Ambassador Pat Rafter, which demonstrate the ‘Room For Everyone’ product offering to both business and leisure travellers.
“Our city hotels are predominantly frequented by business travellers who will benefit from the refreshed product now on offer but leisure travellers visiting for city events will also enjoy the new look hotels,” said Mantra Group CEO Bob East.
