USA, Weehawken, New Jersey. September 26, 2019

EnVue has announced its opening, joining Autograph Collection, Marriott International's newest collection of independent, characterful hotels that are each hand selected for their inherent craft and distinct perspective on design and hospitality, creating an Exactly Like Nothing Else experience.

The 208-room, 10-story luxurious waterfront hotel located at 550 Avenue at Port Imperial is managed by HEI Hotels & Resorts of Norwalk, Connecticut. EnVue is owned and developed by Roseland Residential Trust, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali, one of the leading developers of luxury lifestyle-oriented multifamily and mixed-use properties throughout the Northeast.

Situated on the Hudson River, just steps from the Port Imperial Ferry, where guests can travel to Midtown Manhattan in just minutes, EnVue offers guests unparalleled outdoor space with unobstructed views, and convenient access to Times Square, Central Park, Madison Square Garden and MetLife Stadium.

Roseland has led the transformation of Port Imperial, an approximate $3 billion, 200-acre community on the Hudson River Waterfront in New Jersey. The company's vision for the neighborhood is to create a holistic lifestyle-oriented destination that offers easy transportation access to Manhattan and New Jersey.

"Our hotel reflects the pulse of New York City with our own independent spirit," said Matthes Metz, General Manager, EnVue. "Our unique property offers an engaging atmosphere, with numerous gathering places for guests and the local community to come in and socialize with friends or family."

Each open and airy guest room features modern décor, upscale furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows, luxury bedding and over-sized bathrooms. EnVue offers various rooms with city and river views, as well as balconies.

EnVue showcases the NoHu Rooftop Restaurant & Bar, serving American small plates and led by Chef Rocco Russo. For private events the hotel offers Skyline, with 15,000 square feet of outdoor space featuring an all-season tent and panoramic views of New York City. Other hotel amenities include a fully-equipped fitness center and 11,000 square feet of high-tech meeting space. The hotel is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified for its contributions in making the environment a healthier place by recycling and reducing waste, conserving energy and water.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
