USA, Arlington, Virginia. December 04, 2018

Interstate Hotels & Resorts and Borealis Hotel Group have opened the first Staybridge Suites® in The Netherlands, Staybridge Suites® The Hague - Parliament. Staybridge Suites® The Hague - Parliament is owned by Borealis Hotel Group and managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the leading, global independent hotel management company.

Located in the heart of The Hague, the hotel is situated opposite the world's oldest parliament building still in use, the Binnenhof, and sits alongside the stunning Court Pond the 'Hofvijver' and the famous Mauritshuis Museum, making it the perfect location to take pictures of The Hague's historic skyline.

Bart van de Kamp, CEO and founder of Borealis Hotel Group said, “We are delighted to open the first Staybridge Suites in The Netherlands and to continuing our strong association with Interstate to provide high quality management services to a high-quality product offering. We look forward to continuing to open new internationally branded hotels in Europe as part of our business plan.”

Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament is a two-minute walk from some of the city's most popular bars, shops and restaurants, including the iconic Bijenkorf department store. With The Hague Central Train Station just a 10-minute walk from the hotel, guests can easily explore nearby cultural venues and attractions, such as the Peace Palace, the miniature theme park Madurodam, Rotterdam, or the North Sea just five kilometres away.

Aaron Greenman, Executive Vice President of Acquisitions & Development - EMEA for Interstate Hotels & Resorts, said: “The opening of the Staybridge Suites represents a further accomplishment of the Borealis-Interstate relationship. We value and respect the Borealis vision and their ability to design, execute and deliver such superb hotels at every level of the hotel market.”

Designed to meet the needs of extended stay guests from business travellers to families, Staybridge Suites The Hague - Parliament offers 101 contemporary designed suites that deliver the comforts of home with fully equipped kitchens, comfortable living areas, and flexible working spaces.

The unique layout and interior design are inspired by the city's rich history and environment. The hotel itself is comprised of three buildings, two of which are located on the central Lange Vijverberg. The historical design influence can be seen in the hotel's use of panelling, brass finishing and a traditional colour palette of rich deep blue and warm ochre. Connecting all three buildings together is a stunning Parisian style courtyard, adding to the ambience of the hotel.

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
