To the Grand Hotel, last year was a brilliant and fruitful year! We not only got excellent performance in business, the new marketing deriving from cultural heritage also brought the guests a fresh experience. Just like one of our guest has delivered a personal comments to us: “the Grand Hotel has found its own soul!”
For celebrating the 60th birthday, we have launched a lot of activities which were held not only for celebration, but also for demonstrating the multicultural heritage of the Grand Hotel. In addition, the Grand Hotel is selected as the “Most Traditional Hotel” by Australian website, the “Hotel Club”. The Hotel is also selected as one of the top 10 popular hotels voted by netizens in the “Taste of Taiwan Cuisine 2012” held by TAITRA. This year, we also held the 13th term President and Vice President of the Republic of China Inaugural State Banquet, the 2012 Junior Chamber International World Congress, Taipei TV Festival 2012, the Annual Meeting of World Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce, the eighth round of cross-strait negotiations and so on. All these important events proved that the Grand Hotel is well experienced and capable in the field of organizing important international conferences.
The Grand Hotel is a hotel with “stories”, “history” and “culture”, which is incomparable to other hotels. Recently, we also re-arranged the famous calligraphy pieces, paintings, and antique furniture. The opening of Grand Hotel Cultural and Creative Center introduced the features of Grand Hotel’s heritage in different ways. All the Grand Hotel’s imprints and memories are displayed here. In the newly-renovated State Banquet Hall, except for the luxurious feast, all the stories are told in the historical pictures hung inside. We received many praises from our guests, mentioning that the Grand Hotel has finally found its own soul and characteristics to catch people’s eye. This is an encouragement to the hotel and our colleagues.
On the New Year’s Day of 2013, we will invite 102 well-known calligraphers of Taiwan to join the “Grand Hotel Cultural Festival. Wield the writing brushes for the New Year”. We would like to introduce the beauty of Chinese calligraphy to the public, and also welcome the Year of 2013’ with our guests at the same time. In the upcoming 2013, the Grand Hotel Taipei is going to start the renovation of guest rooms. No matter in the hardware facilities or on software aspects, our service quality all need to upgrade to the next level. I would also like to wish our guests and colleagues happy, healthy and expect the Grand Hotel have a bright 2013.
