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.

Other hotel amenities include a fully-equipped fitness center and 11,000 square feet of high-tech meeting space.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
