THIRTEEN Penang Starwalk 2016 participants can look forward to staying at some of Hotel Jen Penang’s newly renovated and refurbished suites by the end of this year.
It is sponsoring room vouchers worth RM10,420 as lucky draw prizes for the Sept 11 walk.
Lucky participants will walk away with a 2D/1N complimentary stay in either the hotel’s Deluxe Room or Executive Suite.
Hotel general manager Gavin Weightman said the hotel is currently undergoing a RM60mil facelift which includes upgrading its rooms, suites and public spaces such as the lobby, reception desk and On-The-Go lobby coffee shop.
“The first phase will be completed by the end of October while the entire project is set to be completed next June.
“Work will be confined to between 9am and 6pm to cause minimal disruption to our guests,” he said after presenting Star Media Group Bhd senior advertising representative Sandy Kow with the complimentary vouchers at the hotel on Friday.
Commenting on the walk, Weightman said the event would enable local and international participants to see for themselves the beauty of George Town and what it has to offer.
“It is also a good opportunity for our staff to get out and see their own neighbourhood as well as help us educate our guests on what Penang, and George Town in particular, has to offer,” he said.
The 7km non-competitive Penang Starwalk 2016 will be flagged off from Penang Times Square at 7am on Sept 11.
