The Rose Hotel Chicago/O’Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, Welcomes Executive Chef Nicholas Malloy

USA, Chicago, Illinois. December 06, 2018

Rosemont's first boutique hotel and closest off-airport property to O'Hare International Airport, The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, which recently opened its doors at 5200 Pearl Street, is thrilled to welcome Nicholas Malloy as the Executive Chef of the property. Chef Malloy comes to The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare team with an impressive background that spans high-end hotels and independently owned restaurants around the Chicagoland area.

Chef Malloy's expansive background began back in 2009, when he graduated from Kendall College Culinary School and joined the team at the independently owned 545 North Bar and Grill. From there, Malloy moved on to become Lead Supervisor of the Banquet Culinary Team at the JW Marriott Chicago. In 2014, he joined the Chicago Marriott Naperville as a Sous Chef, where he became the leader in designing the menu for their Artisan Table.

“We are beyond ecstatic to welcome Nicholas to our growing team,” says Micaela Haas, General Manager of The Rose Hotel Chicago/O'Hare, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. “Nicholas brings with him an inviting personality, and has already embraced our motto One Team One Dream when serving patrons and working alongside our fellow colleagues. We are eager for our hotel guests and the public alike to stop in and experience Chef's new menus.”

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.
