Merrion Row Hotel and Public House Opening Late Fall 2018

Warm Irish Hospitality Meets Modern Sophistication at Stylish New Manhattan Hotel Now Taking Reservations

USA , New York City , New York. October 18, 2018

The genuine nature of Irish hospitality warms Manhattan's modern boutique hotel experience beginning December 1, 2018 with the opening of Merrion Row Hotel and Public House. This intimate 28-room hotel with lively pub and restaurant in midtown Manhattan nods to Ireland in its decor, food, and service, aiming for guests to arrive a stranger, leave a friend. The hotel is now accepting reservations for guest stays and private events.

Close to Bryant Park, the Theater District and Rockefeller Center, Merrion Row Hotel and Public House embraces the Irish tradition of cead mile failte, or "100,000 welcomes" in Irish. The property draws inspiration from Dublin, where the energetic strip of good-natured pubs referred to as Merrion Row meets the stately Georgian row houses encircling Merrion Square. With Meyer Davis Studio's trademark rich, natural aesthetic, modern energy and sophisticated tradition is brought to life Stateside in contemporary style. Entering the revived Beaux-Arts building, those staying overnight are greeted with a smile and a welcome pint before checking in to well-appointed guest rooms or settling in to the Public House for food and banter.

Bright rooms offer a contemporary feel, with real white oak floors stretched out before tasteful Irish-inspired plaid drapes drawn against sweeping windows. Tiger Leather headboards play nicely with the pops of blues and greens in the furniture and accessories, original photography of the Irish countryside and portraits of some of the land's most notable authors. In each en suite bathroom, classic New York style prevails, with black and white subway tiling against Calcutta white marble vanities and glass paneled showers. The deep blue ceilings add intrigue from above, and the brilliant solid brass fixtures punctuate for a luxury feel.

Merrion Row Hotel's Public House, anchoring the building's first floor, delivers a convivial community spirit. Playful twists on traditional Irish and New American pub favorites utilizing local ingredients elevate the menu. Standouts like Guinness Shepard's Pie Empanadas and Bangers in Blankets pair well with the 24 beers on tap. In the front, a large, custom communal table and soft seating encourage a space that transitions easy from day to night. In the back, a more up-tempo pub environment can be expected.

Thoughtfully designed spaces throughout present the opportunity for unique boutique meetings, private dinners and intimate celebrations. A standout conservatory with glass retractable roof is ideal for bright, all-weather gatherings. Upstairs, flexible meeting space residential in feel is available for special events. For couples seeking a true home base for wedding festivities, Merrion Row Hotel is the perfect option for a full buyout, allowing privacy for attendees to retreat and rest, and ample, varied space for the rehearsal dinner, getting ready, and morning after brunch.

Grand opening rates at Merrion Row Hotel start from $299/night. The Public House is open daily to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Visit or call 866-203-0912 to plan a visit. Follow the craic @merrionrowNYC.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
