Embassy Suites Inner Harbor Hotel in Downtown Baltimore Reopens This Fall Following Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

BALTIMORE, MD. August 31, 2017 - The Embassy Suites Inner Harbor Hotel in downtown Baltimore reopens this fall, following an extensive renovation that brings together playfulness and posh under one roof.

The Embassy Suite brand’s Inner Harbor location, the only full-service suite hotel in downtown Baltimore, is set to fully open during the first week of October 2017, just in time for Free Fall Baltimore, the Baltimore Running Festival and the lead-up to the holiday season around the Harbor.

Debuting rejuvenated guest suite accommodations and updated public spaces, the multi-million dollar renovation seamlessly blends modern style with the hotel’s classic sophistication.

Three hundred guest suites underwent upgrades, and feature a contemporary design focused on maximizing guest comfort. The sleek design lends itself to some of the most stunning views of Baltimore that the city has to offer, including the original Washington Monument, the world famous Inner Harbor and the Mt. Vernon cityscape.

While the hotels’ upgraded suites would rival their counterparts at any contemporary hotel, Embassy Suites Inner Harbor is proudly rooted in all things Baltimore, and offers unique, imaginative features that may leaving you saying “Who knew?”.

Tying into Baltimore’s artistic flair that combines quirky and creative, the hotel lobby now features awe-inducing art pieces, showcasing a larger-than-life mural which features “Things You Didn’t Know About Baltimore” to capture guests’ imagination and identify Baltimore heritage. The second art piece, “Under the Harbor”, is a collaboration of multiple artists and will feature a unique “underwater view of the Inner harbor” from the lobby ceiling (a view most will never see outside of the hotel, unless your Baltimore trip includes a water taxi ride gone wrong!) .

Additionally, the hotel will introduce a new dining destination for guests and locals alike. Stacks Bar and Grill, located on the second floor of the lobby, will feature gourmet stacked grilled cheeses and sandwiches, as well as a full complement of entrees focused on traditional Baltimore flavors (Old Bay, anyone?) with a few eclectic specialties. Stacks Bar and Grill’s menu will offer shareable appetizers, soups, salads, entrée dishes and desserts. Stacks will also feature a full-service bar and craft cocktails served by the talented mixology team. Stacks takes your grandmother’s grilled cheese to a whole new level (with all due respect, Grandma) .

Keeping the spirit of the Embassy Suites brand, the Inner Harbor location offers guests a fantastic free made-to-order breakfast and complimentary Evening Reception with cocktails and snacks. Did we mention both of the amenities are free with a hotel stay?

“We are thrilled with the quality and thoughtful design of our renovation, specifically showcasing the spacious suites, comfortable amenities and stunning vies of Baltimore and the Inner Harbor,” said Andrew Labetti, General Manager of the Embassy Suites Baltimore Inner Harbor. “These improvements have redefined the hotel into a fresh, stylish space and we are confident this renovation will enhance our guests’ experience. Guests will be truly wowed by the transformation. We look forward to welcoming our loyal guests back, and to starting relationships with newcomers to Baltimore”.

Ideally located in downtown Baltimore’s business district, the hotel is just minutes from the best the city has to offer, including the famous Inner Harbor, National Aquarium and Science Center, and numerous shops, restaurants and museums. The hotel is located just 10 miles from Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.

Embassy Suites Baltimore Inner Harbor connects to iconic event venue, The Grand. One of the largest and most iconic facilities in Maryland, The Grand offers 45,000 square feet of flexible space for social functions, weddings and group meetings. The hotel’s convenient connection (literally) to The Grand makes it easy for guests to quickly return to their room if need be – say, if the best man accidentally left the wedding ring in the hotel room!

Dallas-based Aimbridge Hospitality, the nation’s largest independent hotel management firm, manages the hotel. For more information or to make a reservation, visit Embassy Suites by Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor website.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
