According to Bernama report, AmFIRST Real Estate Investment Trust (AmFIRST REIT), which owns an 82% stake in the Summit Hotel Subang USJ, will be spending between RM20 million and RM30 million on refurbishment works for the hotel to maintain its four-star rating.
The hotel which is currently managed by Summit Hotel Management Sdn Bhd will begin undergoing refurbishment works after a new operator for the hotel is chosen.
Deputy CEO of AmFIRST REIT, Zuhairy Md Isa said that the company had identified some good operators and it will take three to six months before the finalising stage.
Almost every part of the hotel will be rejuvenated to give it a new look and to meet the standard requirements of the new operator.
He also shared that when the hotel building was first bought in 2008, the corporation had spent RM7 million on the hotel's refurbishment works.
Since its last major renovation eight years ago, the time has come for the building to be refreshed following the refurbishment of the shopping mall below.
