Kimball Investment and Woodbury Corporation Open New TownePlace Suites by Marriott in Downtown Salt Lake City

USA, Salt Lake City, Utah. January 29, 2019

Kimball Investment Company and Woodbury Corporation today announced the opening of a new TownePlace Suites by Marriott in downtown Salt Lake City.

Located at 135 West 200 South, the 95-suite hotel is situated directly across from the main entrance of the Calvin L. Rampton Salt Palace Convention Center, making it an ideal and convenient option for the hundreds of thousands of visitors that attend conventions, exhibitions and other events at the center each year. It is also at the core of the central business district, and within walking distance from many of the downtown area's other attractions, including Temple Square, the Eccles Theater, the Gallivan Center and the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

“This exciting Marriott extended-stay hotel is in an ideal location and has wonderful amenities,” said Guy Woodbury, senior vice president of hospitality at Woodbury Corporation. “Whether it's for a one-night stay or a month-long trip, this new TownePlace Suites is perfect for people who are coming in for training classes, consulting projects, conventions, or who just want to see the sights of Salt Lake City.”

Designed for travelers who need accommodations for longer stays—or who just crave the comforts of home—this new property offers suites with fully-equipped kitchens that feature stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, as well as separate living and sleeping areas. Most rooms also include the Home Office™ Desk, designed to provide guests with plenty of storage and flexible space to spread out and make it their own. Additionally, all service team members are thoroughly trained on the local area, and a large TowneMap® helps guests instantly acclimate to Salt Lake City by featuring great places to eat, play and explore.

“We are excited to introduce the TownePlace Suites brand to the downtown Salt Lake City area,” said Diane Mayer, vice president and global brand manager of TownePlace Suites. “We want to go above and beyond and do everything we can to make our guests feel comfortable by providing a seamless residential atmosphere with a friendly staff. That is what our brand is all about, and this property is a great example of that.”

Kimball Investment orchestrated this development and partnered with Woodbury Corporation, which will manage the hotel. Beecher Walker Architects designed the project and Rimrock Construction was the general contractor.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
