Best Western Reaches New Heights in Solo

Solo, Surakarta (Indonesia) – September 1, 2015 – The Best Western International in Solo, Central Java, is literally taking accommodation in the city to new heights. Rising 82 meters from the streets of this emerging Indonesian destination, the new BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru has become Solo’s tallest hotel. And its array of upscale amenities, including vast amounts of conference and banqueting space, is also elevating the guest experience.

Guests can indulge in a soothing treatment at the hotel’s sublime spa, soak up the tropical sun in the outdoor infinity-edged swimming pool, or work up a sweat in the Sky Fitness Center, which is located on the 22nd floor and overlooks the city.

For diners, the Chrystal Sapphire Coffee serves up both Indonesian and international dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, while the Pool Cafe is the ideal place to relax with a cooling cocktail. And after dark, the top floor Sky Lounge provides a stylish and sophisticated venue for evening drinks.

BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is also set to become one of the city’s main meetings and events hubs. The hotel’s Ruby Convention Hall can handle up to 2500 people and is complemented by eight other function rooms, each of which can accommodate 200-300 delegates. This makes BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru the ideal venue for any conference, business meeting, social event, wedding or product launch.

“Our upscale BEST WESTERN PREMIER brand is becoming famous around the world for providing exceptional hotels with world-class facilities, and BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is another outstanding addition to this collection,” said Ron Pohl, Best Western International’s Senior Vice President of Brand Management.

“Set in the city’s tallest building, this hotel will be a genuine landmark in Solo. With its expansive conference facilities, BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is set to become a key part of the city’s events scene, attracting delegates not only from elsewhere in Indonesia, but from Asia Pacific and across the world, he added.

Olivier Berrivin, Best Western International’s Managing Director of International Operations – Asia, commented; “As Best Western International continues to expand its footprint across Asia, we are now seeking iconic hotels that will elevate the guest experience to new levels. BEST WESTERN PREMIER Solo Baru is an excellent example of this new brand vision.

“I am confident that the hotel will thrill guests with its outstanding array of facilities, and will re-shape how people think about Best Western hotels,” Mr. Berrivin added.
