Paramount Hotel Group Adds Hotel Indigo Newark Downtown to Portfolio

USA, Fairfield, New Jersey. May 31, 2018

Paramount Hotel Group, a growing full-service third-party hotel management company, announced today that it has been awarded the management contract for the Hotel Indigo Newark Downtown. Ethan Kramer, President of Paramount, made the announcement.

The Hotel Indigo is located at 810 Broad Street in Newark, New Jersey at the southernmost end of the Passaic River, just one block from the Prudential Center and a short walk to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).

The 12-story, 90,000 square-foot hotel building was erected in 1912 and designed by Cass Gilbert as the National State Bank. With exposed brick, beautiful windows, and unique loft configurations, each of the hotel's 108 guest rooms features decor and artwork that reflect the neighborhood's spirit of innovation and invention.

All rooms are equipped with iPads, from which guests can control room service, housekeeping service and window shades, among other features. A business center and fitness center are also on-site. A 4,000 square foot restaurant is located on the ground floor and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The signature, one-of-a-kind Ainsworth Rooftop Lounge provides a spectacular view of the New York City skyline. It is open to guests and non-guests alike and features a collection of classic cocktails, American noveau creations and a late-night menu.

“We are excited to have been selected to manage this Indigo hotel,” said Kramer. “With this change, Ownership is focusing on Paramount's core strengths to drive revenue, maximize profitability and provide a quality customer experience.”

Hotel Group Meetings: The Need for Speed

2017 was a banner year in the Hotel Group Meetings marketplace and that trend is expected to continue throughout 2018. Planners are experiencing a renewed sense of confidence due to a reinvigorated economy and increased job creation, which typically provides a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are maintaining a fast and furious pace, and they are utilizing an array of technologies to speed things up. For example, planner requests and proposals are expected to be turned around quickly; the mantra seems to be “as soon as possible, or sooner!” To that end, the use of electronic Request for Proposals (eRFPs) to source hotels and venues has increased in recent years, bringing many timely benefits to the Meetings industry. As a result, in order for hotels to attract and book meetings, they have to be willing to operate with a sense of urgency, which is the new baseline for success. Once on property, the need for speed doesn't diminish. Poken is a cloud-based event management platform, which enables attendees to easily and quickly connect, network and share contact info. ClickShare is a wireless presentation system that permits others in the meeting room to share their laptop with the presenter screen at the push of a button. Skype is useful in order to engage with remote participants in real time, and dedicated apps are being routinely used to drive registration and communication before, during and after a meeting. Finally, text messaging is replacing emailing and phone calls simply because it's quicker. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
