McNeill Hotel Company recently celebrated completion of a substantial exterior renovation of its 3-story, 137-suite Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel in Carmel, IN. The property is located off I-465 and US-31 N, north of Indianapolis.

Celebration festivities included live harp music, a champagne toast, delicious hors d'oeuvres from the Market District, Fine Chocolates by DeBrand and a local favorite, Rosie's Sugar Cookies. Guests toured the hotel and registered for various door prizes that were given away throughout the evening. The Grand Prize winner received a weekend trip to Nashville, TN, featuring a complimentary weekend stay at McNeill's award-winning Courtyard by Marriott Green Hills and dinner for two at ETC restaurant.

"I want to thank our entire staff for all of their extra efforts during the renovation process and also extend thanks to our host community and friends for embracing the property and joining us in the celebration," said Matt McAtee, the property's general manager.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
