MOUNT OLIVE, NEW JERSEY - Northstar Hotels Group, new management company of the Wyndham Garden Hotel, aim to please as Mount Olive community partner. And in the next couple of months, you can expect to see big changes at the hotel intended to do just that.
“We want to become an integral part of the community,” said Reza Ghassemi, COO of Northstar Hotels Group, which recently purchased the International Trade Center hotel. “We want to be a true partner in the Mount Olive community.”
By the end of 2008, the 141-room hotel will undergo renovations that include updated room décor, upgrades to the lobby, and restaurant. The hotel's Garden Café restaurant, offers American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Some changes will happen quicker than others, such as the now totally free high speed wireless Internet service that is currently accessible anywhere in the hotel, including in the Garden Café.
Another new addition expected to be in place shortly is the Starbucks Coffee service in the lobby, complete with an array of Starbucks pastries, salads and sandwiches.
Within a few months, every bed in the hotel will be replaced and each room will have new heat and air conditioning units that are far more comfortable than the existing units. Additionally, 32 inch flat screen TVs will also be added to each room at the hotel.
“We recognize that you can go anywhere for a bed and a bite to eat,” said Ghassemi. “What makes us different is the level of hospitality that we will offer. We are in the hospitality business and the guests are the people we have to answer to.”
The new management team is also looking to provide a relaxing, easily accessible place for area residents to enjoy dinner, get a quick lunch, or even breakfast. With a menu of casual American cuisine, the Garden Café provides the perfect venue for business meetings and social functions.
“The community appreciates a friendly and comfortable place to dine,” Ghassemi said. “And if they want to, a place where they can bring their laptop and take care of business at the same time. And we realize that time is valuable particularly for those at lunchtime so we have to take care of them in a timely fashion. We’re developing a menu that caters to everyone’s schedule – a lunch that’s fast and reasonably priced.”
Northstar Hotels Group owns several hotels in New Jersey, including the Holiday Inns in Somerset and Saddle Brook.
“We are very excited about the Mount Olive acquisition,” said Ghassemi. “This is a great location and a great opportunity for us to make a difference.”
