Concept Hospitality Pvt. Ltd gave Ahmedabad its first Ecotel hotel by launching ‘The Fern’ in late 2011. The Fern is strategically located on SG Highway; thereby it’s easily accessible for business travellers visiting both Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar.
What makes this business hotel different from the others existing in Ahmedabad, is the fact that it is an Ecotel Hotel, which means the hotel provides all the business amenities and all the contemporary facilities to its guests with minimal impact on the environment. An Ecotel is a new concept in the hospitality industry that requires the property to comply with strict standards in terms of environment concern. There are basically ‘5 globes’ to this concept – energy conservation, water conservation, solid waste management, employee environmental education and environmental commitment.
Therefore, the hotel is designed and constructed with energy conservation techniques and incorporates minimal lighting. Moreover, the hotel also recycles used water to preserve this natural resource. The entire hotel staff is also trained to adopt the finest environmental practices whilst serving the guests to the best of their abilities. On an average, an Ecotel Hotel is about 15% more expensive to maintain than a normal hotel because of the kind of equipment and systems used to manage resources, yet ‘The Fern’ manages to have competitive room rates!
The Fern’s 96 rooms and suites are built offering a spacious design with deluxe amenities against the backdrop of the spectacular city line catering to the needs of both the leisure and business traveller. As far as food and beverage offering is concerned, the hotel’s all day dining restaurant – The Garden Café is an indulgence for all taste buds.
Their 1800 Sq. Ft. banquet hall ‘Marigold’ is equipped with state-of-the-art technical facilities and a team of dedicated and knowledgeable staff, making it the ideal venue for any gathering whether big or small!
The Fern is only 18 kms away from Sardar Vallabhbhai International Airport and 20 kms away from the Kalupur railway station. Thus making it a perfect choice for the business traveller, with its central location, comfortable amenities and warm service.
