Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, a Forbes Five-Star, Five Diamond 309-room oceanfront resort situated on seven acres along the Atlantic Ocean on the island of Palm Beach, announces the appointment of Tim Nardi as General Manager. Nardi will be responsible for managing the day-to-day operation of the resort which, along with its 309 guest rooms, includes a world-class Forbes Five-Star 42,000 square foot spa, four food and beverage outlets and 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The ownership group at Eau Palm Beach stated how thrilled they are to have Tim join the team, adding that Tim has been based in South Florida for nearly his entire career and knows the market very well. His keen attention to detail coupled with his deep knowledge of the industry along with his strategic vision will be a key driver for our ongoing success at Eau Palm Beach.

With more than three decades of experience as General Manager at various properties in South Florida, Nardi was most recently Vice President of Hotels for Menin Hospitality where he was responsible for leading the operating performance and growth of the company's hotel portfolio, which includes Mondrian South Beach, Shelborne South Beach, Bentley South Beach, Gale South Beach, Kaskades Suites at Gale, Sanctuary South Beach and Raffaello Chicago.

Prior to this, he was also General Manager at Morgans Hotel Group's Shore Club in Miami Beach and Marriott International's Eden Roc Renaissance Resort and Spa Miami Beach.

Nardi attended the University of Montana and is a graduate of Cornell University's Professional Development Program. Nardi recently stated that he is ecstatic about returning to an on-property role where he will have direct contact with guests. One of his greatest pleasures is ensuring the well-being, care and comfort of each and every guest.

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.
