Two Roads Hospitality Converting Historic Baltimore Building to Joie de Vivre's Hotel Revival at Mount Vernon Place

DENVER, CO. September 25, 2017 – Two Roads Hospitality has announced its newest Joie de Vivre property, Revival at Mount Vernon Place, is set to open in early 2018 in the heart of Baltimore’s historic Mount Vernon neighborhood – the nationally-registered cultural center of the city where you’ll find well-preserved, 19th-century architecture and the original Washington Monument. The 107-room, 14-story hotel, developed by Denver-based real estate company nuovoRE, will be housed in a historic building dating back to 1929, which resides on land formerly owned by the President of Baltimore & Ohio (B&O Railroad). Revival will be a hotel rooted in history with an eye to the future.

“Home to a thriving arts and culture scene, Baltimore’s lively Mount Vernon neighborhood is a natural fit for our next Joie de Vivre property, ” said Jamie Sabatier, CEO of Two Roads Hospitality. “Joie de Vivre is an eclectic boutique hotel brand with locations that draw inspiration from the people and places around them. Revival will celebrate the energy of the city of Baltimore, while honoring and paying homage to the quaint spirit of Mount Vernon.”

The design sought out to celebrate the best of Baltimore, past and present. The impeccably designed, oversized guest rooms capture the spirit of residential living and are dotted with references to the city. Features include decorative pieces like a quilt with abstract artwork of Chesapeake Bay and locally-sourced art, as well as hardwood floors inspired by pilings from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in certain rooms.

In addition to thoughtfully-designed guest rooms and suites, the hotel will feature three dining and drinking options – all highlighting the distinct local flavors of Baltimore – including Square Meal, a ground-floor signature restaurant serving seasonal American fare; a lobby-level lounge; and Topside, a rooftop restaurant and bar centered around the Chesapeake Bay’s bountiful seafood offerings. Revival will also have three karaoke rooms, each with a unique aesthetic drawing from different design eras. Additionally, the property will feature four event spaces: Friday Evening, a private dining room; Kindred and Bailiwick, two 1, 000-square-foot banquet rooms; and the Rayborg Crise Garden, an enclosed, private rooftop space.

Superbly located at 101 West Monument Street in Mount Vernon, one of America’s oldest and most culturally diverse neighborhoods, Revival is steps away from the Walters Art Museum, Peabody Musical Institute, and the Maryland Historical Society, in addition to extensive parks.

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.
