. October 14, 2008

DALLAS, TX, October 10, 2006. The SpringHill Suites Baltimore BWI Airport has joined the fast-growing list of hotel properties in Remington's diverse management portfolio. More than a half-million dollars will be invested to refresh the 133-suite property with enhancements to guest rooms and public spaces expected to be completed by mid-January 2007. This is Remington's fourth property in Maryland.

"We aim to update this property to reflect the style and sensibilities of today's business and leisure travelers," said Mark Sharkey, Chief Operating Officer of Remington. "New floor coverings, new window treatments and paint colors will dramatically refresh the entire property."

Enhancements will touch virtually every space within the five-story hotel, including lobby, business library, meeting space, reception, breakfast and pool areas, fitness center, guest corridors, public restrooms and elevators. Guest rooms and bathrooms will also be updated, including new artwork and hardware.

Located within one mile of the BWI airport, the hotel features well-equipped guest rooms with large work areas, complimentary high-speed Internet access and pantries with refrigerator, microwave, sink and coffee maker. Located in close proximity to the 200-store Arundel Mills retail center and the National Aquarium and the Maryland Science Center, the property features an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and meeting space. Guests enjoy complimentary shuttle service to BWI and Arundel Mills, as well as free daily buffet breakfast and on-site parking.

With a proven track record of matching owners' expectations with those of the market, Remington designs and develops the features, services and amenities that best position properties within their respective markets.

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.
