Docklands local hotel manager takes part in Premier Inn’s newest advert
Premier Inn employee takes center stage in new advert
A Docklands local has been selected from hundreds of people to take part in a major new national advertising campaign.
Hotel worker Faizan Kazi, from Docklands has been chosen as one of the faces of Premier Inn’s latest advert – joining a select handful of his other colleagues.
The once in a lifetime opportunity to be seen by millions of people on TV screens across the UK comes as Premier Inn introduces Rest Easy – a brand new campaign to reassure the nation that they can count on Premier Inn; from getting great value, flexible rates through to a great night’s sleep.
As part of the campaign, Premier Inn reached out to Its employee’s and invited them to audition to take part. Faizan, 34, deputy hotel manager from London Kings Cross Premier Inn, jumped at the opportunity, along with hundreds of his colleagues nationwide.
Faizan, originally from Mumbai, has worked for the hotel chain for eight years since coming to England in 2013. Looking to broaden his opportunities he decided to send in a video application for the role and was thrilled when he got the part.
In fact, the role was ideal for Fazian – who is dubbed by his colleagues as Premier Inn’s number one fan – as his love for the company is so great, he even decided to propose to his girlfriend in a Premier Inn.
Faizan said: “Premier Inn will always have a special place in my heart. I even proposed to my now fiancé at a Premier Inn which goes to show how truly special the company is to me, so when the opportunity came to take part in the advert I had to apply! It’s been an amazing experience and one I surely won’t forget. Since coming to the country they have provided me with opportunities I can only dream of and this has been the cherry on top.”
Tamara Strauss Global Customer Director for Premier Inn said:“We’re thrilled Faizan has taken part in our Rest Easy campaign as our team members who work tirelessly to ensure all our guests have a wonderful stay, are absolutely central to the rest easy experience. Premier Inn is all about real people having real day to day experiences at our hotels and so it was completely natural to us to ensure our team members were cast.
“All employees who took part are absolutely instrumental in representing the experience our guests get when they come to a Premier Inn.”
Premier Inn hotels are set to reopen to leisure travelers from May, 17.
Premier Inn rooms are only available to book on Premierinn.com, with rates starting at £29 a night.
