McNeill Hotel Company recently celebrated completion of a substantial exterior renovation of its 3-story, 137-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel in Carmel, IN. The property is located off I-465 and US-31 N, north of Indianapolis.

Celebration festivities included live harp music, a champagne toast, delicious hors d'oeuvres from the Market District, Fine Chocolates by DeBrand and a local favorite, Rosie's Sugar Cookies. Guests toured the hotel and registered for various door prizes that were given away throughout the evening. The Grand Prize winner received a weekend trip to Nashville, TN, featuring a complimentary weekend stay at McNeill's award-winning Courtyard by Marriott Green Hills and dinner for two at ETC restaurant.

As a further highlight of the event, the Homewood Suites Carmel raised funds for the Child Advocate Center, a Indianapolis non-profit. The funds were presented to the organization that evening.

"I want to thank our entire staff for all of their extra efforts during the renovation process and also extend thanks to our host community and friends for embracing the property and joining us in the celebration," said Matt McAtee, the property's general manager.

Among improvements, the renovations included a complete re-imaging of the hotel's exterior, impacting landscaping, the parking lot, outdoor signage and lighting, and the courtyard area. McNeill also added two new boardroom meeting suites within the hotel, each of which seats up to 18 persons.

"In partnership with Homewood Suites by Hilton, this transformation reflects our commitment to deliver guests the highest quality accommodations, service and convenience they have come to expect from staying at a McNeill Hotel Company property," said McNeill Hotel Company President & COO Mark Ricketts.

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.
