MUMBAI: – IBIS, a smart economy hospitality brand from the Accor portfolio, has launched its third and largest property in Mumbai – ibis Mumbai Vikhroli. Strategically located in the corporate hub of Mumbai, Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg, the new-generation design hotel reflects symbols inspired by “Aamchi Mumbai” culture for the new-age traveller. The hotel is conveniently situated 10 Kms from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport and 5 Kms from Ghatkopar Metro Station. The property is opposite the 247 Park, one the most prominent commercial establishments in the region and in close proximity to the city’s key attractions such as Creek Flamingo Sanctuary, Powai and Vihar lake, R City Mall, and Vikhroli Sarwajanik Temple.
The 15-floor ibis Mumbai Vikhroli features 249 comfortable rooms with large windows, stylish wardrobes, sleek TV panels and the much loved ‘Sweet Bed’ by ibis. The rooms are designed in six different themes, featuring the city’s heartbeat - the local train, its pride- the Dabbawalas, the beautiful Mumbai skyline, royal lifestyle of the Maratha empire, flamingos- migratory birds that flock to Mumbai, and Kolam- a traditional form of art drawn using rice flour.
