USA, Cambridge, Massachusetts. January 10, 2019

Freepoint Hotel West Cambridge becomes part of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, a portfolio of stylish, upscale hotels that provides guests with authentic sense of place. Hilton launched Tapestry Collection in May 2017 to offer travelers the opportunity to stay in unique hotels that reflect the vibrancy of the local communities they are in, with the reassurance of the Hilton name.

Originally opened in April 2017 as an independent hotel, Freepoint Hotel has since continued to enhance the hotel experience to reflect its artistic and eclectic Cambridge neighborhood through modern and luxurious amenities, including its signature restaurant, Freepoint Kitchen & Cocktails by Matthew Gaudet, as well as special events and programming.

“We are delighted to join Tapestry Collection by Hilton,” said Jeff Sellers, General Manager of Freepoint Hotel. “Our guests love that Freepoint is an independent hotel with a unique sense of place, and Cambridge, we all can agree, is a place unlike any other. By joining Tapestry Collection, we can maintain our individuality while being able to provide our guests with enhanced benefits such as Hilton's award-winning customer loyalty program, Hilton Honors, while being endorsed by one of the largest and most reliable hotel brands in the world.”

Freepoint Hotel sits in the heart of Cambridge, one of the world's leading hubs for innovation, education and creativity. The 121-room boutique hotel, located centrally near MIT, Harvard and Tufts Universities, and is a short ride from Boston, giving guests easy access to one of the East Coast's most historic and intellectually invigorating regions. The hotel's signature restaurant and bar, Freepoint Kitchen & Cocktails by Matthew Gaudet, allows guests to converge in a living room-like setting to share creative cocktails and inventive small plates.

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.
