Alpha Sponsored Tekno Autosports wins Bathurst 1000

12Oct

Alpha Hotels & Resorts are joining the Tekno Autosports team in celebrating the breathtaking 2016 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 win on Sunday.

Alpha Hotels & Resorts have been a sponsor of the Tekno team for a number of years and were ecstatic to see Will Davison and his co-driver Jonathan Webb win in what was a truly thrilling finish.

“This is just phenomenal,’’ Davison said.

“To win this with such a small team, and with Jonathan (Webb) is just real special. We are a really close team and to do it with them is incredible.’’

Davison’s win will go down in Mount Panorama folklore after the 2009 winner ran out of fuel while crossing the line to win the race by the narrowest margin in competitive history.

In a breathtaking finale to the race, Jamie Whincup was controversially stripped of a certain win for his role in a crash that crushed Garth Tander and Scott McLaughlin’s Bathurst dream.

Davison then held off the fast finishing Shane Van Gisbergen to land the shock win.

Reducing Hotel Carbon Footprint through Workforce Practices

23Feb

Since opening Alpha Canberra Hotel & Apartments in 2014, which was closely followed by three other hotels in NSW and QLD, Alpha Hotels & Resorts has adopted low-carbon workforce practices to provide energy savings, lower costs and improve overall business performance.

The Managing Partners of the newest Australian-owned hotel group, saw an opportunity to build a hotel brand and network of efficient, mid-upscale hotels and apartments with an eco-friendly virtual corporate office.

Bruce Holliday, Managing Partner said, “The customer-facing hotel workforce naturally needs to be located onsite looking after guests and managing the day to day operations, however there are specialised services and areas of management that present many benefits for remote workers.”

Traditionally, operators of hotel groups set up either a corporate office or provide work space for the team that support the hotel network from a nominated hotel. Both of these structures require commuting to work, add to overhead costs and consume more energy through use of office equipment.

Instead, Alpha Hotels & Resorts recognised the benefits of engaging a virtual team of largely home-based sales, marketing and IT experts to launch its brand, and to provide ongoing operational support to a pipeline of hotels. This structure means their specialised management team work in the most part remotely, immediately reducing their own carbon footprint – and by extension the carbon footprint of their contractors.

Julie McKinnon, Director of Adapt Marketing, offers home-based outsourced marketing expertise and services to all four Alpha Hotels & Resorts, and says, “Marketing strategies for hotels are focused on driving revenue through direct and other digital channels, which can be supported 100% remotely”.

“Working virtually with hotel teams on marketing activities allows them to spend more time where it matters most – looking after their customers”.

She added, “I have a paper-less office, and use a range of teleworking solutions to collaborate with clients to keep travel and consumptions of resources to a minimum.”

Alpha Hotels & Resorts currently owns and operates four mid-upscale hotels and apartments located in Canberra, Western Sydney, Brisbane and Surfers Paradise. For more information visit: www.alphahotels.com.au

The property boasts well-designed leisure facilities with a large heated pool and spa, BBQ area, alfresco restaurant and bar, free unlimited WiFi, gym, games room and valet parking.

Jonathan Wooller, Founder and Managing Partner of Alpha Hotels & Resorts said, “The Gold Coast property is an important addition to the Alpha network, as our first hotel in such a popular and thriving holiday and leisure destination.

“The outlook for the region is very positive with recent increases in the number of international visitors. As the host destination for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Gold Coast accommodation sector will receive a boost in the lead up to, during and in the years after the event.”

New Rooms and Club Floor for Alpha Eastern Creek

03Sep

Alpha Hotels & Resorts will invest $10 million to redevelop Alpha Eastern Creek to capitalise on market growth, with 60 new accommodation rooms and a club floor to be complete by April 2016.

Alpha Hotel Eastern Creek boasts a prime position directly opposite Sydney Motorsport Park, within one of Western Sydney’s fastest growing Corporate and Industrial Estates.

The hotel will be transformed to meet increased demand for full-service hotels in the area with market growth fuelled by NSW Government infrastructure projects proposed for the Broader Western Sydney Area.

Construction has commenced on the addition of 60 new rooms, creating an entirely new floor on top of the existing premise increasing the room count to 162. By completion in April 2016 it will be the largest hotel in the area.

Jonathan Wooller, Founder and Managing Partner of Alpha Hotels & Resorts said, “With uninterrupted views over Sydney Motorsport Park, and surrounding areas, the Alpha Club floor will have 60 additional guest rooms and social areas that will incorporate contemporary interior design, the latest technology, entertainment and amenities for the fast-paced, style-conscious traveller”.

“Both the Alpha Club floor and the exceptional dining experience offered at Oak Bar & Grill, will distinguish Alpha Hotel Eastern Creek as the World-class hotel provider in the heart of Sydney’s growth corridor’, he added.

Alpha Eastern Creek also opened its new dining destination restaurant last year after a major up-market revamp of its popular bistro-style dining space. “Oak Bar & Grill” is located within the hotel but in its own unique space. Hotel guests, visitors to the area and businesses can enjoy Oak’s chic but chilled out atmosphere with indoor and alfresco dining.

Alpha Mosaic – Review in Weekends Away

19Aug

In the past few years, the airport end of Fortitude Valley has become a precinct of hipster hotels. Some are hanging their hat on trendy restaurants and rooftop bars, but Alpha Mosaic has taken a more traditional route, focusing on quality and harnessing a slightly more sophisticated edge. In June, it is celebrating 12 months of open doors. It hasn’t positioned itself as a go-to nightspot, which probably means it’s not bathing in the same word-of-mouth glory as its neighbours. But those who’ve found it couldn’t be happier.
