USA, Arlington, Virginia. January 08, 2019

Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the premier global hotel management company, has been selected by investment group, Rockbridge to manage The Westin Portland Harborview, a historic property in Portland, Maine. The new management contract furthers Interstate's coast-to-coast U.S. expansion following recent acquisitions, adding the Courtyard by Marriott Salt Lake City Downtown, Hyatt House Salt Lake City/Downtown and Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Salt Lake City Downtown in Salt Lake City, Utah to its expansive portfolio.

“Interstate is proud to be the designated management company for such a notable property,” said Interstate Hotels & Resorts President and CEO, Mike Deitemeyer. “We look forward to managing this historic landmark hotel in partnership with Rockbridge, delivering a unique New England experience.”

Ideally located in the heart of Portland's vibrant Arts District, just blocks from the Old Port and some of the best restaurants, retail shops, museums and artistic venues, providing travelers a perfect vantage point to explore Maine's largest city. Originally opening in 1927 as the Eastland Park Hotel, The Westin Portland Harborview has been immaculately restored to its historic glory, featuring 289 plush rooms and suites, each with a stunning view of downtown, the harbor, or Casco Bay and 24-hour room service, 15,000 sq. ft. of event space and a spectacular grand ballroom, state-of-the-art Westin WORKOUT® fitness studio, the full service Artne Spa, as well as on-site dining, including the Congress Squared Restaurant offering the freshest seafood and locally sourced ingredients and the timelessly chic Top of the East rooftop restaurant with panoramic views.

A global leader in third-party hotel management, Interstate Hotels & Resorts' depth of experience across all lodging segments and asset classes drives results in each of its managed hotels worldwide.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
