Dimension Development Appoints Emma Hebert General Manager for Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport

SHREVEPORT, LA. December 20, 2016 - Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport has named a new general manager after undergoing renovations of its guest suites.

Emma Hebert will take the reins at the Shreveport, Louisiana hotel managed by Dimension Development Company. The native of Cambridge, England has lived in the United States for just over five years and has an extensive history in the hospitality industry. She has previously served as a general manager for brands including Wyndham and Marriott before arriving at Hilton.

"I am thrilled to be joining such a beautiful hotel and can't wait to lead the way in offering an unforgettable experience to our guests through standards, service and a little personality along the way," Hebert said. "I believe that bringing fun into the workplace will make my team feel even more valuable, which in turn gives them the confidence to serve our guests with even more dedication."

Hebert's last hotel was ranked in the top 2 percent of the brand when it came to service, an accomplishment that she said she is very proud of.

When not working, Hebert enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and two children, ages 5 and 7, while working hard to maintain her English accent that is slowly giving way to a Southern twang.

Homewood Suites by Hilton Shreveport has just received a facelift in the last few months, with a refreshing new paint job on the exterior. Guest rooms where smoking was once allowed were also renovated as the hotel transitioned to a 100 percent smoke-free environment. Spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom suites boast plenty of additional amenities that travelers will appreciate whether in town for a quick getaway or an extended stay. Fully equipped kitchens with dishwashers, refrigerators, microwaves and two-burner stoves allow visitors to whip up a snack or meal at any time of day. Complimentary high-speed internet and flat-panel TVs will keep guests well-connected and entertained during downtime. Separate rooms for living and sleeping make the hotel in Shreveport feel right at home, where visitors can get a sound night's slumber on comfortable beds with cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
