Davidson Hotels & Resorts Assumes Management of The 575-Room Westin Indianapolis

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. September 04, 2019

Davidson Hotels & Resorts has been appointed to manage The Westin Indianapolis, the 575-room hotel in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. Immediately adjacent and connected via skywalk to the Indiana Convention Center, the 15-story property is steps from premier shopping, dining and entertainment hubs, including Lucas Oil Stadium.

"Indianapolis is such a diverse and vibrant city with strong demand from a world-class convention center, local corporations and premier sporting events, and The Westin Indianapolis is the best-located hotel in the downtown core," said Davidson Hotels & Resorts President Thom Geshay. "Our strong history of success in this market, combined with our deep understanding of the meetings and convention business, will enable us to capitalize on all that Indianapolis has to offer and improve the guest experience."

Under the management of Davidson Hotels & Resorts' project development team, The Westin Indianapolis will undergo a comprehensive renovation. Virtually every feature of the hotel will be upgraded, including all guest rooms, public spaces, and dining and social venues. The property will remain a Westin Hotels & Resorts-branded hotel.

The Westin Indianapolis currently houses 39,000 square feet of meeting and event space and provides access to an additional 750,000 square feet of space in the adjoining Indiana Convention Center. Onsite meeting specialists and audio-visual technicians are provided by the hotel along with a full-service business center and FedEx Office.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
