Travelodge Debuts Ipoh’s Only International Branded Hotel

Travelodge Ipoh is the 4th Travelodge hotel to open in Malaysia in under 18 months

Travelodge Hotels Asia (TLA), 1 of the fastest growing midscale hotel companies in Asia, ramps up its expansion in Malaysia with the debut of its 4th hotel, Travelodge Ipoh. The hotel opens recently following a successful rebranding & refurbishment of the former Heritage Hotel Ipoh

The 4th largest city in the country, Ipoh has been gaining steady recognition as a tourism destination in recent years. A confluence of factors , including the city’s deep-rooted colonial & cultural heritage, the abundance of natural attractions in & around Ipoh, as well as convenient tourist access enabled by its own international airport has increased Ipoh’s allure & popularity with domestic & international travallers alike. The city’s tourism is expected to get a further boost as the Perak administration starts rolling out various initiatives under the ‘Visit Malaysia Year 2020’ campaign

“We are thrilled to kick off 2020 with the opening of our fourth Travelodge hotel in Malaysia. Our entry into Ipoh is fuelled by our confidence in the city’s growth prospects to become one of the country’s top destinations in the coming years,” said Mr Marcus Aw, Managing Director, Travelodge Hotels Asia. “With Malaysia on a huge tourism drive & an ambitious target of attracting 30 million international visitors, we believe there is far more headroom for growth, especially for global midscale hotel brands that cater to value conscious travellers. We are keen to introduce the Travelodge brand to other cities e.g. Kota Kinabalu, Malacca, Johor Bahru & Kuching, just to name a few & build our portfolio as we work towards 15 hotels in Malaysia by 2025.”

Travelodge Ipoh is situated close to the city’s business district & famous tourist attractions e.g. Concubine Lane, Mural Art Lane, Perak Tong Cave Temple, Kellie’s Castle & Gua Tempurung. It offers 268 newly refurbished rooms in 5 categories i.e. Superior, Deluxe, Premier, Family Deluxe & Family Suite catering to both business & leisure guests

Additionally, the hotel offers 2 meeting rooms, 3 ballrooms & a grand ballroom, making it as an ideal venue for meetings, incentives, conferencing & exhibition (MICE). Other amenities include high speed WIFI, satellite TV, self-service laundromat, a gym, a kids’ play area & The Lodge, a multi-functional communal & dining space, to complete the Travelodge Ipoh experience, which promises comfort, convenience & connectivity

With the opening of its 4th property in under 18 months, TLA is affirming its commitment to and confidence in the Malaysian hotel market. Travelodge Bukit Bintang opened in 2018 & 3 subsequent properties have quickly followed in Kuala Lumpur, Penang & Ipoh namely Travelodge City Centre, Travelodge Georgetown & now Travelodge Ipoh

“We are very excited about our long-term prospects in this market. With four hotels & a strong infrastructure already in place including a capable local team, led by industry veterans & supported by dynamic young talent , we have a great platform to accelerate our footprint and advance our growth ambitions across Malaysia,” Mr Aw added
