July 8, 2008 – Guilty Pleasures for Business Travelers at the Magnolia Hotel
(Victoria, British Columbia) — A recent survey by a large upscale hotel chain reveals that comfort and technology are tops for relaxing business travel. The Magnolia Hotel & Spa, Victoria’s four-diamond, European-style luxury boutique hotel surpassed the respondents dream hotel requirements.
Half of Boomers and 48% of Gen X/Y think a comfortable bed is the most important hotel feature. Magnolia’s two-poster beds, dressed in deluxe duvets, feather pillows, and crisp linens definitely fit the bill, and are turned down nightly. More than half of both groups chose “in-room spa” as their top dream hotel amenity and a hot shower as the best way to unwind. A deep soaker tub and separate glassed in shower in the marble clad bathrooms, AVEDA toiletries and bath balms, luxurious linens, and signature bathrobes make for a relaxing and luxurious stay at the Magnolia.
When asked what they don’t want anyone to know they do on a business trip, both groups noted “watch TV all night”. Magnolia’s staff keeps secrets. What’s not a secret is the new 37-inch high definition flat screen TV’s just installed in all rooms.
Deluxe Continental Breakfast, daily newspaper, nightly turn-down service, high speed and wireless internet, in-room imported coffee and teas, the in-house fitness center (sometimes there is nothing on TV), local phone calls and faxes are all provided on a complimentary basis.
The in-house Asian fusion restaurant, Sanuk, invites guests to savour gourmet food and an extensive wine list, while Hugo’s Brewhouse, a microbrewery, offers casual dining and excellent brews. For those desiring the ultimate in relaxation, Spa Magnolia, a full service AVEDA Lifestyle Spa, personalizes treatments to rebalance, rejuvenate and refresh.
The Magnolia’s outstanding personalized service and attention to detail is guaranteed, with only 64 rooms. Professional, courteous staff has become the unquestioned hallmark of The Magnolia through an uncommon commitment to helpful, responsive and attentive service. Magnolia’s central location and distinctive European luxury boutique style caters to all guests, especially business travelers seeking a peaceful retreat.
