Staypineapple Opens The Alise Boston Following Rebranding of The Former Chandler Inn

USA, Boston, Massachusetts. March 06, 2018

Staypineapple, known for its fun and thoughtful approach to hospitality, is pleased to announce a new addition to the pineapple family. Located in Boston, Mass., the hotel, formerly The Chandler Inn, became The Alise Boston on February 28, 2018. The Alise is the embodiment of Staypineapple's vision for what a refined, urban, classic yet modern hotel should be.

“We are thrilled to open a new hotel in the charming, historic Back Bay neighborhood in Boston,” said Michelle Barnet, CEO of Pineapple Hospitality Co. “Our pineapple family is growing, and we are excited to now have a presence on both coasts. We look forward to formally introducing The Alise in July and to welcoming everyone.”

The 56-room hotel is currently receiving the signature Staypineapple look. Staypineapple's The Naked Experience™ pampers every guest with European-style bedding including two separate duvets, allowing each sleeper to snuggle into a whole new level of customizable comfort. The best part is that every stitch of super-soft bedding is prepared specially for every guest, not to mention extras such as cozy robes and slippers, snuggly pillows, plush bath towels and extra bedding like top sheets and blankets in case traditional bedding is preferred. The Alise anticipates every need, offering additional amenities including Chromecast streaming options, anytime munchies, complimentary pineapple cupcakes and Keurigs with Staypineapple coffee pods.

Included in the “pineapplization” of all rooms, queen and twin mattresses have been replaced with Staypineapple's signature king-size mattresses and new flooring has been installed. In anticipation of the hotel's grand opening this summer, finishing touches are coming along. Custom platform bed frames, headboards and dressers will be installed in June. Staypineapple will also add wall sconces, a new chandelier and custom pineapple wall covering.

The opening of The Alise is the growth of a new pineapple, which takes time. Within the year, Staypineapple also plans to remodel the lobby. Overall renovations will be completed by the end of 2018.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
