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.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
