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.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
