SHAH ALAM: i-City, a 29.14ha freehold ultrapolis here, will have its first three-star hotel by September next year.

The 216-room Best Western boutique hotel, developed by I-Bhd, developer of i-City, will be managed by the world's largest hotel chain, Best Western International.

"The hotel is the third building block in the development of i-City as a tourism destination," said I-Bhd deputy chairman Datuk Eu Hong Chew at the signing ceremony between i-City and Best Western International for the development of the hotel here yesterday.

The strategic partnership will see Best Western International managing the hotel as well as the soon-to-be unveiled Best Western Service Suites by providing hospitality and building management service for a period of five years with a further five-year option.

Eu said the hotel, which has a gross development value of RM50 million, will be the first of two hotels planned for i-City.
He said I-Bhd will also extend its collaboration with Best Western International to include the management of 826 units of Best Western Service Suites which were expected to be completed by 2016.

Earlier, Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, who witnessed the signing ceremony, said the Best Western hotel will provide quality accommodation choice for foreign visitors and help lift the state's tourism industry.
