36 Minute City Guides launched to show how to get the best from cities – direct from Jurys Inn staff
A study by Jurys Inn Hotel Group today revealed that business travellers only get 36 minutes’ free time to explore a city they are visiting for work, despite over 90% saying they wished they knew more about the cities.
The research goes on to show that 22% feel it is ridiculous they don’t get to see more while there, with many corporate travellers ending up whiling away the time alone in a coffee shop (16%).
With hotels across the UK ideally located in the heart of city centres, Jurys Inn has used its staff’s local expertise to create 36 Minute City Guides of key business travel cities. These ensure that, with minimal moments to spare, time-poor professionals can still get insider knowledge on the best of the city. Each location-specific video guide will help guests feel like a local when staying at a Jurys Inn city centre hotel, giving a quick-stop guide to hidden gems to explore and experience in their 36 free minutes.Suzanne Cannon, Jurys Inn Group Marketing Manager said “It’s a shame that business travellers get such a limited amount of time to really experience the cities they are visiting for work. At Jurys Inn, our staff are always on hand to offer advice about great hotspots and hidden gems to visit, even if guests only have a few minutes to spare. With our hotels being ideally placed right in the heart of cities, we hope our 36 Minutes City guides will let business travellers make the most of their next stay at one of our city centre hotels.”
