Four Points by Sheraton Boston Logan Airport Completes Renovation Led by General Manager Michael Buddemeyer

BOSTON, MA. August 8, 2017 – Four Points by Sheraton Boston Logan Airport today announced the completion of renovations to its 180 guestrooms, lobby and all function spaces. Ideally situated near Boston’s Logan Airport and just five miles from TD Banknorth Garden and Fenway Park, the hotel now offers fully updated guestrooms and bathrooms, an expanded lobby with a large concierge space and redesigned function spaces.

“It’s a very exciting time for this hotel, and for our entire team, and we are eager to share our new look with travelers,” said Michael Buddemeyer, general manager, Four Points by Sheraton Boston Logan Airport. “The redesign here will provide a more welcoming atmosphere for our business and leisure travel guests, with guestrooms fit for maximum comfort and an enlarged lobby to encourage social gatherings.

The renovations enhance the look and feel of the property and we believe the changes will position the hotel for long-term success.”

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.
