PUTERI HARBOUR, JOHOR, MALAYSIA: June 3rd 2015: Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor (formerly Traders Hotel, Puteri Harbour, Johor) hosted a special event for approximately 100 guests, including local taxi drivers, to give them a glimpse of what it would be like to stay at Hotel Jen.  Supported by MYTEKSI, Malaysia’s fast and safe taxi booking application, the event aimed to help local taxi drivers familiarise themselves with the many great stays, interesting tourist attractions and potential business event sites located around Puteri Harbour. 
“With the changing demands of today’s customers, the Hotel Jen experience will set new standards for both business and leisure travellers, particularly, the millennial-minded guests.  Together with efficiency, without fuss or intrusion, Hotel Jen takes care of guests with a careful attention to details that will impress even the seasoned travellers, giving them a similar experience of staying with a friend,” said Mr. Sigi Bierbaumer, general manager of Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor. 
“Today’s event is meant to give local taxi drivers an opportunity to step into Hotel Jen when all they usually do is drop off and pick up guests. We really want them to experience first-hand what Hotel Jen has to offer, as well as introduce to them the other unique offerings that we have.” Bierbaumer added. 
During the event, invited guests were treated to a tour of the hotel to give them first-hand experience of the services and facilities that Hotel Jen has to offer for both business meetings and leisure. Other services, such as bicycle rental with a fitted GoPro camera for a family trip and mobile check-in service, were also demonstrated. 
The event ended with a scrumptious buffet lunch at Harbour Café on the hotel’s first floor.
Recently rebranded in April 2015, the Hotel Jen brand is inspired by virtual persona Jen, a professional hotelier who loves life, travel and the adventure of discovering new places. With that in mind, the Hotel Jen experience delivers what matters to guests – the important things done well.

Additionally, guests who are constantly on-the-go need not worry about missing the important meal of the day or any meal for that matter, when they can pick their Breakfast-to-Go box or just visit the On-the-Go deli counter for a quick and healthy bite on the run. Another unique offering by Hotel Jen is the vending machine that holds a variety of beverage and snacks at convenience store prices.
