USA, AUSTIN, Texas. March 26, 2019

Austin Marriott Downtown, slated to open its doors in Summer 2020, is excited to introduce Alicia Miller as Market Director of Group Sales. In her role, Alicia will be responsible for leading group sales for the Austin Marriott Downtown and JW Marriott Austin. Both properties are owned and operated by White Lodging.

"As a proven leader in the hospitality industry, Alicia will make a vital addition to the sales team at Austin Marriott Downtown," said Fernando Estala, Jr., Director of Sales & Marketing for Austin Marriott Downtown. "Her track record with Marriott speaks for itself, and we're confident that she'll bring a similar level of excellence to her position in Austin."

A born-and-bred Texan, Alicia previously worked at the Marriott Marquis Houston as a Senior Sales Executive.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
