Prism Hotels and Resorts To Manage Serene, a Vegas Resort

Newly rebranded boutique hotel to serve as a calming alternative destination away from the 24/7 stimulation of Las Vegas

DALLAS, TX. April 10, 2017 – Prism Hotels and Resorts, an award winning full service hotel management, investment, and advisory services company, announced today they will serve as the management and advisory support team for the newly rebranded property Serene, a Vegas Resort. Prism Hotels and Resorts’ President and CEO Steve Van made the announcement.

The two-story, 149-room hotel located at 455 E. Harmon Avenue in Las Vegas, will offer guests a contemporary and thoughtful environment conducive to escaping the heightened stimulation of Vegas, while still conveniently located steps away from the Vegas experience. Serene offers a calming and crisp white setting highlighted by accents of color, desert-inspired landscaping, and an outdoor environment ready for guests looking to take a dip in the pool or enjoy an hour of peace in the sun.

In addition to creating and launching the independent Serene brand for the hotel, Prism is embarking upon a number of property updates including refreshed guest rooms, an updated lobby and public space, and the opening the hotel’s new RLX restaurant. Derived from “relax,” the restaurant will offer guests a place to enjoy a simple, easy meal in a calm, yet highly attentive environment.

“Adding Serene to our ever-growing management portfolio of notable full-service properties nationally has been exciting for us to further expand our footprint of resorts on the west coast,” Van said. “We are guiding this hotel through a tremendous transformation, which will make it a hotel experience not to be missed by the traveler who wants to be in Vegas, but also wants time to relax and take advantage of some peace and quiet. This is a hotel that is offering guests an opportunity to recharge, which is not easily found in Vegas today.”

This management opportunity is an example of Prism’s growing relationship with independent entrepreneurial investors and owners. The company has a growing track record of being tapped by individual owners looking for a strong management partner to deliver results for their properties.
Upgrades to the hotel, including guest rooms and RLX are currently underway. The hotel is located across from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, east of the Las Vegas
Strip, only 1.9 miles from the McCarran International Airport.

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.
