Hubbard Products has bagged a deal to supply the London Marriott Hotel Regents Park with Scotsman ice machines for use by its guests.
The luxury 4-star hotel, which boasts 311 rooms, has recently undergone an extensive modernisation, with a new spacious lobby and each floor being upgraded to meet the expectations of modern travellers.
One of the recent trends in upmarket hotels has been to provide guests with more opportunities for self-service.
As part of this, Scotsman DXG35 ice dispensers from Hubbard Systems have been installed in the public areas on each floor, allowing guests to have access to ice whenever they need it.
Craig Hole, chief engineer at the London Marriott Hotel Regents Park, said: “Obviously, having friendly and highly trained staff looking after you is still a major part of the appeal about staying at a quality hotel, but there are plenty of extra touches we can provide for our guests to enhance their time with us.”
The DXG35 is designed as the ideal self-serve ice provision in hotels. It makes Scotsman’s crystal clear, long-lasting gourmet supercubes.
It can produce up to 37kg of ice per day – the equivalent of 1500 x 20g supercube ice cubes – and has an 11kg storage bin, allowing it to cope easily with spikes in demand.
The supercube is made by spraying water upwards into a mould, which causes impurities to fall out as it freezes. This makes the supercube strikingly clear and slow melting, making it ideal for presentation of quality drinks. Their thimble shape also means the ice cubes do not stick together in the storage bin.
Ice is dispensed using a push-button, which helps to reduce contact and hygiene issues while guaranteeing reliability and maximising working life.
The list price for the DXG35 is £4,238. The units at the London Marriott were supplied through Reeder Refrigeration.
