McNeill Hotel Company's 124-room Hampton Inn & Suites South Columbia (MD) announced today that it is now open and ready to serve guests after having completed an extensive renovation.

The renovation, which will be formally celebrated in the fall, involved both guestrooms and all public spaces and included new mattress sets and televisions in the guest rooms. The exterior of the hotel was also reimagined with new building paint, signage, and lighting. Hotel amenities include free breakfast, complimentary WiFi, indoor pool, a 24-hour business center and fitness center. Each guestroom includes luxury bedding, HDTV, free in-room movie channels and coffeemaker. The hotel offers special rooms for COVID-19 responders.

Recently appointed General Manager Joseph Galvan led the reopening of the property, which had closed in mid-March due to the pandemic. Joseph joins McNeill Hotels with over 20 years of hotel & operations experience with Hilton, Holiday Inns, and Marriott Focus Service Brand hotels where he has served in a variety of roles as Regional Director, Area General Manager, and General Manager positions.

"I am excited to be joining this exceptional organization and proud of both our team and our newly renovated Hampton Inn & Suites in what is an outstanding community and lodging market," Galvan said.

"We are pleased to welcome Joseph to the McNeill Hotel Company family as General Manager of this fabulous property," said Mark Ricketts, President & COO of McNeill Hotel Company. "In partnership with Hampton by Hilton, Joseph and the entire team at Hampton Inn & Suites South Columbia will remain committed to going ‘above and beyond' to insure that the hotel meets or exceeds all sanitation and cleanliness standards that have been established by Hilton."

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
