MCR Acquires 160-Room Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick at Rhode Island’s T.F. Green International Airport

USA, New York City, New York. July 23, 2018

MCR, the seventh-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, has acquired the 160-room Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick at Rhode Island's T.F. Green International Airport (PVD), which serves 4 million passengers annually.

Since 2017, T.F. Green International Airport has added six new
carriers, many overseas routes and nearly 8 percent more passengers.
Ranked the sixth-best U.S. airport in 2018 by Money magazine,
PVD was praised for its on-time arrival rate of 82 percent. The
airport's growth is nonstop: In 2021, JetBlue founder David Neeleman is
expected to launch his start-up airline, Moxy, at T.F. Green.

The Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick is a 10-minute walk
to T.F. Green's terminal, which offers domestic service from Allegiant,
American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest and United. Norwegian
Airlines flies to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Azores
Airlines provides seasonal service to Ponta Delgada and beyond.

“Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but it has one of the best
airports,” says Tyler Morse, CEO and Managing Partner of MCR. “Twenty
five percent of the U.S. population lives within 500 miles of PVD — and
when they're passing through Providence, we welcome them all at The
Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick.”

For those looking to get away from it all a little closer to home, the hotel is connected to the Iron Works Tavern, a community favorite housed in the historic 1867 R.I. Malleable Iron Works Factory building. There, locals and business travelers visiting the nearby offices of MetLife, UPS and Swarovski North America can raise a glass of Rise pale ale from the award-winning local Whalers Brewing Company.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
