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 Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
