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 Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
