Ok this threw me a bit , I know Virgin from having the biggest CD/DVD stores ever , even from pre-paid cell phones.
Now it looks like they are taking a shot at the Hotel business , I heard so many things about there Hotels coming that I am very curious. I heard they are brining one to my city of New York in 2016 , I heard they are going to take Hotel innovation to a new level… well I will let this video I found on their website explain..
So it appears that there is some buzz behind the hotel’s coming , Chicago will open up in 2014 , then other locations include
Dallas , Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, Washington DC, London, Paris and others. The owner Richard Branson wants to make the Hotel stay an experience , from the slick marketing I see he may execute just what he is planning to do.
If you think I’m joking about the marking check this out !
Virgin seems to pretty much have a solid plan think I’m kidding read what Virgin.com says :
Virgin Hotels is going to change all that. We are in it to provide something new, fresh and meaningful to the guest. Virgin has re-invented the upper class flight experience, created award winning clubhouses, developed superior entertainment systems that put control in our consumers’ hands, and built a reputation for brilliant service.
It’s time to extend this thinking to hotels. Hotels will no longer be a transient place where “I stay”—Virgin Hotels will be a place where guests feel ownership, where they can be themselves (with a few delights and surprises sprinkled in!) and where they can’t wait to come back.
Currently the Chicago Hotel is taking 2015 reservations now , you can make your reservation now at VirginHotels.com
The wait is almost over…
