红网时刻新闻记者 向婉 长沙报道
英译：I have been very fortunate that I have been provided a great many opportunities to work in and with different aspects of the hotel and hospitality industry. The biggest thrill is that I have had the opportunity to work in such diverse geographical and cultural locations such as Scandinavia, Switzerland, France, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, United States, Thailand, Cambodia, China in such exciting locations like Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Changzhou and now the capital of Hunan, CHANGSHA! Throughout this journey I have worked with a Scandinavian Tour operator with the focus being on guest experiences and taking care of the journey. In the hotels I have worked my way through the investment side and the operational priorities by working in most departments. Through this journey I have learned that the only thing that is truly important is to place our guests and customers at the center of everything that we do.
英译：Niccolo Changsha is the sister hotel of our successful hotels in Chengdu, Chongqing and Hong Kong where we also seek to deliver a Contemporary Chic experience with a heavy focus on designing an experience that stands out in a setting that is designed with attention to details. All our hotels are situated in city center locations and Niccolo Changsha will command an impressive location at the very heart of the business and entertainment district of Changsha at Jiefang West Road and Wuyi Square on top of the impressive new CHANGSHA IFS development.
英译：Changsha was a natural choice because of the rich history and the sprawling entrepreneurial city and people that make up Changsha. Being part of the larger Wharf Family and being a central component of the CHANGSHA IFS development there are multiple reasons for us selecting Changsha to open our fourth hotel overall. However, central to this decision is that we believe that Changsha residents are looking for the Contemporary Chic experience that embodies Niccolo. Being the entertainment capital of China its residents and visitors are edgy, modern and sophisticated and Niccolo will be able to meet the customer needs with our focus on great design and delivering unique experiences.
英译：The hotels design remains a central focal point of the experience and ambiance that our customer will have when staying, dining or participating in an event, celebration or wedding at Niccolo Changsha. People are also hungry for something new and different that stands out during a time where the big hotel companies continue to grow and ultimately end up delivering standardized services that does not differentiate one experience or hotel from another. We are able to act locally and meet the unique demands and experiences that our Changsha guests are looking for in dining and events in particular. We have also taken the opportunity to develop meetings and event experiences that others have not done. What differentiate a good hotel from a great hotel is at the end of the day the people delivering the services and our people focus and attention to details will be central to experience that our guests will have in Niccolo Changsha.
英译：Simple elegant contemporary chic designs in venues that are standing out in more ways than one. Our Niccolo Kitchen, Tea Lounge and BAR 93 are all located at 93rd Floor providing guests and residents with impressive views across the city scape and Xiang River. Our meticulously designed Roma and Milano event venues on 92nd Floor will become the most sought after private dining venues with impeccable views toward the Orange Island and the Yue Lu Shan Mountain across the Xiang River. The 888 square meter ballroom in the heart of the city will be able to showcase an event venue where we can bring in cars and other large equipment thanks to the designs and foresight of customer needs applied. On the 8th floor garden scape we introduce the most unique event venue in The Conservatory, which will be a truly unique destination for product launches, wedding ceremonies and anniversary celebrations. Each and every venue is poised to exceed guest experiences but ultimately the guest service focus will be what stands out more than anything.
英译：Niccolo Changsha will be developing our rooms business as the central scope of business with Frequent Individual travelers in the Corporate and Leisure segments remaining the focus. We also see that we should be able to offer a great solution from meetings and events given the facilities, the rooms’ product and the exceptional location of the hotel. Locally our focus remains the restaurants and bars business with Niccolo Kitchen being the all day dining experience, The Tea Lounge will introduce the Niccolo Afternoon Tea experience for visitors looking to relax after shopping at CHANGSHA IFS while BAR 93 will be the fun place for Changsha residents to enjoy a great evening out. With great ambiance, impeccable contemporary chic designs and great variety and live performances BAR 93 is certain to offer fun experiences for hotel and Changsha residents.
英译：We see that the Changsha market has grown over the last few years and is poised to continue to grow and develop as the city is continuing a rapid expansion. The city is an exciting and up and coming metropolis in the center of China and we are confident that our association with the city will open the eyes for many new visitors to the Changsha and Hunan.
英译：It is more a reflection of what Changsha is becoming and it is a testament to the excitement that more people are feeling about the trajectory and economic development culture that Changsha and Hunan is currently on. Personally I have been very impressed with what I have learned of the city’s and province’s history and more importantly the people. Everyone that I have had the opportunity to meet I feel that we are where we want to be because of the people and the forward-looking and open mindset applied by the residents of this metropolis. We can’t wait to continue learning and developing services for the city and become an integral part of the history and traditions that will shape the city in the years to come.
