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.”

Mobile Technology: The Future is Now

Mobile Technology continues to advance at a relentless pace and the hotel industry continues to adapt. Hotel guests have shown a strong preference for mobile self-service - from checking-in/out at a hotel kiosk, to ordering room service, making dinner reservations, booking spa treatments, and managing laundry/dry cleaning services. And they also enjoy the convenience of paying for these services with smart phone mobile payments. In addition, some hotels have adopted a “concierge in your pocket” concept. Through a proprietary hotel app, guests can access useful information such as local entertainment venues, tourist attractions, event calendars, and medical facilities and services. In-room entertainment continues to be a key factor, as guests insist on the capacity to plug in their own mobile devices to customize their entertainment choices. Mobile technology also allows for greater marketing opportunities. For example, many hotels have adopted the use of “push notifications” - sending promotions, discounts and special event messages to guests based on their property location, purchase history, profiles, etc. Near field communication (NFC) technology is also being utilized to support applications such as opening room doors, earning loyalty points, renting a bike, accessing a rental car, and more. Finally, some hotels have adopted more futuristic technology. Robots are in use that have the ability to move between floors to deliver room service requests for all kinds of items - food, beverages, towels, toothbrushes, chargers and snacks. And infrared scanners are being used by housekeeping staff that can detect body heat within a room, alerting staff that the room is occupied and they should come back at a later time. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in this exciting mobile technology space.
