Travel Made Stress Free at the Radisson Lexington

Popular Midtown Hotel Provides an Essential "Travel Kit" to Guests for their Stay in New York City

. October 14, 2008

NEW YORK, NY, September 25, 2006. The recent security restrictions surrounding air travel has forced business and leisure travelers to think twice about something as simple as a carry-on bag. Now, guests of The Radisson Lexington Hotel (511 Lexington Avenue at 48th Street; 212-755-4400) can cross several items off their "to pack" list, as the hotel offers guests the option to purchase a custom-designed travel kit containing a variety of toiletries needed during their stay ($5/kit). The travel kit contains a razor, shaving cream, travel toothbrush and toothpaste along with a deodorant. The Radisson Lexington also offers a range of Asira(R) luxury in-room body care amenities, such as high-end shampoos, conditioner, and soap. Contact lens solution is also available at the Gift Shop in the lobby of the hotel for those who require it.

"This travel kit is a natural extension of the commitment we make everyday to ensure our guests' comfort," says Brendan Moraes, General Manager of the Radisson Lexington Hotel. "We recognize this can be a particularly challenging time to travel, and we want our guests to arrive relaxed, ready to take on business or leisure, knowing their travel necessities are taken care of."

Following a nearly $20 million renovation, The Radisson Lexington Hotel has emerged fresher and sleeker than ever, with world-class amenities and six distinct dining and entertainment outlets that have positioned the hotel as the ultimate leisure destination in New York City. Located in the heart of Manhattan's fashionable East Side, the Radisson Lexington Hotel offers guests the best of New York City all under one roof.

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.
