USA, Austin, Texas. September 10, 2019

The InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel in downtown Austin has announced the hiring of Nicholas Hines as director of food and beverage for the property. Hines brings over nine years of industry experience to the role, where he will provide strategic leadership and oversee the operation of the hotel's food and beverage outlets as well as its events and catering services.

Prior to this appointment, Hines served as the general manager of Southern Art and Bourbon Bar at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta since December 2017. There he was responsible for overseeing the hotel restaurant's food and beverage program, including supervising all food service personnel, managing cost and requisition, and controlling food quality and presentation. Previously, Hines held the positions of food and beverage manager at Marriott International in Bethesda, MD, general manager of clubs at Levy Restaurants D.C., and food and beverage manager at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington D.C.

His enthusiasm and hard work will lead the team at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel to the top of the food and beverage market in Austin."

Hines, who is originally from Jamaica, moved to Atlanta in 2015 to attend Tuskegee University where he graduated from the Brimmer School of Business. Now in Austin, Hines is eager to see where he can lead the team and make the most of his position at such a prominent, iconic hotel.

Located in the heart of downtown Austin, the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel has remained one of the leading hotel properties in the area. Stephen F.'s Bar & Terrace has one of the best patios in town, complete with refreshing cocktails, delicious local bites, and the most incredible view of Congress Avenue, the State Capitol, and the historic Paramount Theatre.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
