Hilton Garden Inn continues expansion and signs agreement to open first hotel in Perm, Russia

Released on: November 30, 2007, 3:43 am

Press Release Author: Hilton Hotels Corporation

Industry: Consumer Services

Press Release Summary: Hilton Garden Inn, part of the Hilton Family of Hotels, has announced that it has signed its first hotel agreement to launch the brand in the Russian city of Perm

Press Release Body: Hilton Garden Inn, part of the Hilton Family of Hotels, has announced that it has signed its first hotel agreement to launch the brand in the Russian city of Perm. Through a franchise agreement with Hotels of Ural Ltd, the award-winning mid-priced brand has entered into an agreement which will involve the conversion of the existing Plaza Olympia hotel to the new Hilton Garden Inn Perm which is scheduled to open in late 2008.

“Bringing the Hilton Garden Inn brand to Russia is very exciting because it shows that hotel guests are looking for a new kind of lodging option whether travelling for business or leisure,” said Adrian Kurre, senior vice president – brand management, Hilton Garden Inn. “We look forward to introducing our Hilton Garden Inn core brand attributes like the Garden Sleep System bed, Herman Miller Mirra chair and complimentary Wi-Fi in guestrooms and public space. In addition, the hotel will feature a full service restaurant and 24-hour Pavilion Pantry—both offering a variety of food and beverage offerings.”

Over the next ten years, Hilton anticipates it will open more than 70 Hilton Family Hotels in Russia, not only focusing on Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also actively looking at opportunities in key regional cities.

Welcoming the announcement, Wolfgang M. Neumann, President of Hilton Hotels – Europe, said: “Russia is one of our key strategic development markets and there exists a huge potential for hotel growth in key cities across the country. In Perm there are no internationally branded hotels and just 600 available rooms, so it is clear to us that that quality accommodation is in short supply. We believe that the ever-popular Hilton Garden Inn brand is the perfect fit to meet demand in this market.”

This latest announcement also reflects the expansion of the innovative Hilton Garden Inn brand across Europe, with plans to open new European properties including three locations in Italy, in Bari, Matera and Lecce; Rzeszow, Poland and Frankfurt, Germany in the next 24 months.

Located in the Ural region, more than 621 miles (1,000 km) from the Russian capital, Perm has a population of over one million people and is considered to be an important industrial center. The 104-room Hilton Garden Inn Perm will be centrally situated just a short drive from the airport and city center. In addition, the hotel also will offer leisure and business travelers a bar and restaurant as well as 2,690 square feet (250 square meters) of conference and meeting facilities, business center and complimentary parking.

Separate from this agreement, the first Hilton hotel in Russia will be the 275-room Hilton Moscow Leningradskaya, which is scheduled to open early next year. Hilton has recently announced plans to develop approximately 50 new hotels encompassing selected brands within the Hilton Family of Hotels in Russia, as part of two multi-unit deals expected to be signed this year. The company has also recently revealed it expects to open a new hotel in neighbouring Baku in 2010.

Forget road rage, Barclays Personal Loans research shows 98 per cent of UK drivers are suffering from Motoring Misery


Released on: November 29, 2007, 7:01 am

Press Release Author: Barclays

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: 98 per cent of UK drivers are consumed with motoring misery according to Barclays Personal Loans research

Press Release Body: British motorists are consumed with misery with an overwhelming 98 per cent admitting there is something that drives them mad about being a motorist in the UK according to research from Barclays Personal Loans.

The Barclays Personal Loans research showed that with rising fuel prices pushing petrol and diesel to over one pound a litre, top of the misery list is the cost of fuel with over a quarter of motorists citing it as their main complaint about motoring. This result is reflected across the country, peaking with over a third of drivers naming it as their main motoring moan in Wales. However Londoners are unconcerned about fuel prices, preferring to complain about the traffic jams, parking restrictions, road-works, motoring fines and charges that make for a hellish driving experience in the capital.

Gary Duggan, managing director for Barclays Personal Loans said: “With petrol and diesel above Р’Р€1 in most places, it is perhaps surprising that three quarters of motorists can find some other aspect of driving that drives them more mad than fuel prices – however, Londoners are obviously the least happy finding five other things that irritate them more.”

He continued, “Although we can’t do anything about the cost of fuel, traffic jams or congestion charging, purchasing a car has become easier as we have recently reduced our rates on our loans to as low as 6.8% typical APR, and to help a little bit more we will give £50 to customers who switch their current loan to us. So you can reduce costs whilst fuel prices are going up.”

Across the UK motorists turn on their own, naming ‘other motorists’ as the second worse thing about driving. Boy racers, white van men and Sunday drivers are all named and shamed as the most irritating road users, with tractors and caravans close behind. Younger people are most irritated by elderly drivers whilst older motorists bemoan boy racers.

Third and fourth in the list are traffic jams and the poor quality of roads, surprisingly leaving road tax, speed limits, insurance costs and motoring fines much further down the list of complaints.

But looking on the bright side, two per cent of drivers found nothing to complain about at all. “I can only assume they run their cars on biofuel and they live in the Outer Hebrides,” concluded Mr Duggan.

Notes to Editors:

Further statistics including regional breakdowns by government office of the region are available.

All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 2,317 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 14th – 20th September 2007. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18+).

About Barclays Personal Loans
Barclays offers unsecured personal loans with Barclayloan, Barclayloan Plus and Personal Loan from Barclaycard. Personal Loan from Barclaycard and Barclayloan Plus (for existing customers) have a typical APR of 6.8%. Barclayloan is a personally priced product.

In October, in addition to cutting the rate on personal loans, Barclays launched two customer offers:

– If a customer takes out a loan with Barclays but finds a cheaper loan (with cheaper monthly repayments) elsewhere Barclays will pay them the difference each month plus Р’Р€1
– If a customers switches their current personal loan to a Barclays personal loan Barclays will pay them Р’Р€50

Barclaycard announces Barclaycard Breathe Easy to help reduce household carbon emissions


Released on: November 29, 2007, 4:33 am

Press Release Author: Barclaycard

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: Barclaycard has announced that it is developing Barclaycard Breathe Easy – the UKРІР‚в„ўs first linked credit card and loan aimed at helping tackle household carbon emissions

Press Release Body: Barclaycard is developing the UKРІР‚в„ўs first linked credit card and loan aimed at helping tackle household carbon emissions.

Barclaycard Breathe Easy, planned for launch in summer 2008, will assist homeowners who want to invest in making their homes more energy efficient while also supporting broader efforts to tackle climate change.

Research from the Energy Saving Trust suggests that the average UK household could save around two tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) by making their home more energy efficient. Many consumers’ desire to do this is inhibited however, by the initial cost and the length of the ‘payback’ on the investment.

Barclays Chairman Marcus Agius is also a member of the CBIРІР‚в„ўs Climate Change Task Force which has announced a pledge from leading British companies to enable households to halve their carbon emissions by 2020.

Like Barclaycard Breathe which was successfully launched in July 2007, Barclaycard Breathe Easy is being developed in conjunction with customers, retailers and manufacturers. It will allow customers to benefit from discounts from retail partners on home improvements which increase energy efficiency and, through the use of the loan facility, from a low interest rate on these balances.

Marcus Agius says: “Many homeowners are put off investing in greater home energy efficiency by the cost of doing so and the long time it takes for their investment to pay them back in terms of lower energy bills. Barclaycard Breathe Easy addresses this challenge and is a good example of the role which financial institutions can play in helping consumers reduce household carbon emissions.”

A customer using the new Barclaycard Breathe Easy credit card to purchase home insulation products would receive an initial discount from one of Barclays’ partners. They would then repay the cost as a loan where their monthly repayments are expected to be in line with the savings they would make on their energy costs. This makes the whole project affordable for the householder and beneficial to the environment. After the loan period, the customer will make savings for as long as they live in the house.

Barclaycard Breathe Easy and Barclaycard Breathe form part of Barclays‘ policy of developing products and services that empower households to reduce their carbon footprint.

Notes to Editors:

About Barclays Climate Change Strategy

Barclays five point strategy for dealing with climate change is to:
– Reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by improving energy efficiency
– Buy renewable energy
– Make its UK operations carbon neutral by offsetting the remaining CO2 emissions
– Offer products and services that help its customers to reduce their impact on climate change
– Engage with key stakeholders and contribute to the debate on climate change action

Barclays announced in March 2007 that its UK operations are now carbon neutral. Barclays‘ priorities remain to reduce its carbon emissions through energy efficiency projects and source an increasing part of the energy it uses from green sources. Fifty per cent of the energy Barclays uses in the UK now comes from renewable sources.

About Barclaycard
Barclaycard is a multi-brand credit card and loans business which also processes card payments for retailers and merchants and issues credit and charge cards to corporate customers and the UK Government. It is one of EuropeРІР‚в„ўs leading credit card businesses and has an increasing presence in the United States.

In the UK, Barclaycard comprises Barclaycard, Sky Card, Thomas Cook and Argos branded credit cards and FIRSTPLUS secured lending. Barclaycard also manages card operations on behalf of Solution Personal Finance.

Outside the UK, Barclaycard provides credit cards in the United States, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, India, the United Arab Emirates and Africa. In the Nordic region, Barclaycard operates through Entercard, a joint venture with ForeningsSparbanken (Swedbank).

Parity reveals a significant lack of business skills among IT managers

Released on: November 29, 2007, 3:10 am

Press Release Author: Parity Group plc

Industry: Education

Press Release Summary: Research from Parity reveals a lack of business skills among IT managers which can lead to project failure or services that do not meet financial performance targets

Press Release Body: Research from Parity training has revealed startling disconnects between IT and the wider business world which has asked them to raise the question ‘What exactly is an IT Professional?’

Rick Firth, Managing Director of Parity Training said, “It has always been assumed that IT Managers should possess relevant technical skills, but we are now asking whether these are always necessary if other more valuable business skills are compromised. We believe that senior IT Professionals must be business people first and have the commercial and management skills to manage teams of people, financial budgets and projects.”

The Parity research into what makes a winning project team and the future of ITIL in the boardroom highlights important weaknesses in the necessary skills required to run a business. Both sets of research demonstrate commitment to functional skills i.e. ensuring projects meet business objectives over time and budget, and delivering internal
customer satisfaction regardless of the financial impacts.

But, said Firth, “The average hard nosed CFO is not going to be impressed with achieving objectives at huge, out of budget costs, or indeed have delivery of great internal customer service with no regard to the financial implications.”

Organisations have habitually invested in developing technical skills but have often failed to give additional ‘professional’ skills the same priority. To help organisations do this Parity are making huge changes to the way they sell their IT training services. In addition to launching added value services such as Learning Plus and Parity e-books they intend to completely overhaul their learning portfolio to include IT Governance, Management and Professional skills.

Firth describes what this will mean for the IT Management Profession, “We are going to focus on upgrading Management skills. Our research during the year has consistently told us that we need to address these skills shortages. This means we will be focusing our delivery strategy at the IT business improvement level. It is a significant change and learning delivery end solutions need to change to meet this challenge. Parity intends to be at the forefront of responding to this”.

Parity Group are leaders in IT Service Management and Programme and Project Management training and consulting and were one of the original founders of PRINCE (Projects in Controlled Environments).

Homewood Suites by Hilton opens hotel in Hartford, Connecticut

Released on: November 28, 2007, 7:36 am

Press Release Author: Homewood Suites by Hilton

Industry: Consumer Services

Press Release Summary: Homewood Suites by Hilton furthers growth into urban area development and conversion of historic buildings

Press Release Body: Homewood Suites by Hilton, the international brand of upscale, all-suite, residential-style hotels, has opened the 116-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel Hartford – Downtown.

The new Homewood Suites hotel is owned by McSam Hartford LLC and managed by Magna Hospitality Group DBA MHG Hartford HW. As interest and growth in downtown areas have risen drastically over the past several years, the urban market now offers a wealth of potential extended stay business – an ideal opportunity for Homewood Suites development. The Homewood Suites by Hilton brand has a number of properties situated in the heart of many downtown locations, putting visitors right in the center of a wide variety of shopping, dining and attractions.

“This build demonstrates Homewood Suites’ continued foray into a wide variety of markets, and we are excited to offer this property as an attractive lodging option to those visiting the Hartford area,” said Carol Sikora, general manager. “We are thrilled to be part of Homewood Suites’ continued growth and development.”

The Homewood Suites by Hilton Hartford hotel is adjacent to beautiful Bushnell Park and conveniently located near the Civic Center, the Federal Building and only blocks from Union Station and the Convention Center. The building was the former Bond Hotel, one of the first hotels in Hartford. The Bond opened in 1913 and operated as a hotel until 1965. In 1965 the Arch Diocese of Hartford bought the building and turned it into the St. Francis School of Nursing. The School of Nursing operated until 2000.

To aid development in already-crowded urban areas, the brand offers a flexible suite-type, called the “shotgun suite”, for builders who choose to renovate older properties. These suites offer guests the same experience as a prototypical studio suite, but the shotgun suites are more lateral and narrow. This design allows developers to fit more suites into a smaller space. Developers are given the opportunity to arrange these suite types to best maximize their space and to meet consumer demand.

Like this new hotel in Hartford, Homewood Suites has a number of hotels located in urban areas, including Edgewater, NJ; Indianapolis-Downtown; Baltimore, Chicago-Downtown; and Seattle-Downtown.

Homewood Suites recently completed Phase I of its Distinctly Homewood upgrades – a five-year product enhancement program launched in 2005 – which included upgrades to exercise facilities, guest bathrooms and bedding packages at most hotels. Phase II is now underway, which will include the addition of Dual Massage showerheads by WaterPik and completion of bedding upgrades across remaining hotels. Final completion is scheduled to coincide with the Homewood Suites brand’s 20th anniversary in 2009. The brand also collaborated with Hilton Hotels Corporation’s Supply Management team and a top hospitality industry interior designer to introduce three Distinctly Homewood guest suite concepts. The FF&E packages give developers increased design flexibility while reflecting the core elements of the Distinctly Homewood program – Relevance, Consistency and Distinctiveness.

Launched in 1989, the Homewood Suites by Hilton brand today has more than 210 hotels open with another 125 in the pipeline. Beyond its spacious suites and home-like amenities, Homewood Suites guests can find at each hotel an on-site Suite Shop convenience store, exercise facility and guest laundry at most locations. Guests can also enjoy a daily complimentary Suite Start hot breakfast and a Welcome Home reception featuring a complimentary light meal and beverages Monday-Thursday evenings. Additional guest services at Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels include a complimentary grocery shopping service* and a complete business center at most locations.

Homewood Suites by Hilton is part of Hilton Hotels Corporation, the leading global hospitality company, with more than 2,800 hotels and 480,000 rooms in 76 countries and territories, including 100,000 team members worldwide.
