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.”

Mobile Technology: The Future is Now

Mobile Technology continues to advance at a relentless pace and the hotel industry continues to adapt. Hotel guests have shown a strong preference for mobile self-service - from checking-in/out at a hotel kiosk, to ordering room service, making dinner reservations, booking spa treatments, and managing laundry/dry cleaning services. And they also enjoy the convenience of paying for these services with smart phone mobile payments. In addition, some hotels have adopted a “concierge in your pocket” concept. Through a proprietary hotel app, guests can access useful information such as local entertainment venues, tourist attractions, event calendars, and medical facilities and services. In-room entertainment continues to be a key factor, as guests insist on the capacity to plug in their own mobile devices to customize their entertainment choices. Mobile technology also allows for greater marketing opportunities. For example, many hotels have adopted the use of “push notifications” - sending promotions, discounts and special event messages to guests based on their property location, purchase history, profiles, etc. Near field communication (NFC) technology is also being utilized to support applications such as opening room doors, earning loyalty points, renting a bike, accessing a rental car, and more. Finally, some hotels have adopted more futuristic technology. Robots are in use that have the ability to move between floors to deliver room service requests for all kinds of items - food, beverages, towels, toothbrushes, chargers and snacks. And infrared scanners are being used by housekeeping staff that can detect body heat within a room, alerting staff that the room is occupied and they should come back at a later time. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in this exciting mobile technology space.
