USA, Minneapolis, Minnesota. July 10, 2019

Emery, Downtown Minneapolis' new boutique 229- room Autograph Collection hotel, proudly welcomes Kelly Snyder as its new General Manager. Snyder will oversee daily operations, budgets, sales and marketing at the newly opened ten-story hotel.

"I am thrilled to join the Emery team, and work alongside the hotel's talented and dynamic staff to deliver the authentic hospitality and service the Vibrant North is known for," said Snyder. "Emery is an exceptionally unique property and downtown historical icon; I look forward to furthering the hotel's relationships with the community and local partners to welcome all visitors to the Twin Cities."

Kelly joins the Emery team most recently from LQ Management in Bloomington, Minnesota, where she served as General Manger. A Wisconsin-native, Snyder has also served as a General Manager at Wyndham Mountain Vista and Wyndham Branson at the Falls. Kelly has spent the bulk of her career with Starwood in both operations and sales leadership roles.

"Kelly has a proven track record of financial growth, guest satisfaction and as an exemplary team leader," said Caroline Dyal, Vice President, Operations for Pivot Hotels, the luxury and lifestyle operating division of Davidson Hotels & Resorts "We are pleased to welcome her as an essential part of the hotel's executive team to build upon Emery's opening momentum and bring the newly ‘re-buffed' hotel to its full shine."

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.
