USA, Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. November 12, 2019

Woodmont Lodging, a leading hotel company, and Milestone Companies, a premier full-service real estate development company specializing in hotel assets, today jointly announced the completed acquisition of the 98-room Fairfield Inn & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown. Woodmont Lodging will provide asset management services, and Milestone Hospitality will deliver property management services to the newly constructed hotel.

"We continue to seek premium-branded assets in compelling markets with multiple demand generators capable of better weathering any potential economic downturns," said Elliott Estes, principal, Woodmont Lodging. "Pittsburgh is a dynamic market, the hotel has incredible river views and is surrounded by a variety of Fortune 500 companies, universities, hospitals and a growing tech corridor. The hotel is the newest property in Pittsburgh, providing business and leisure guests with the latest amenities."

Located at 435 Fort Pitt Boulevard, the seven-story hotel is proximate to such local attractions as PNC Park, Heinz Field and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The hotel provides customers with fantastic waterfront views along the Monongahela River and ease of access to the Station Square entertainment and retail district. Each room and suite provide oversized workspaces with ergonomic chairs, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, cotton-rich linens and a comfortable pillow top mattress for relaxation. Hotel amenities include a 24/7 fitness center, guest laundry, sundry store and a daily, complimentary hot breakfast. The hotel hosted its grand opening in October 2019 after two years of construction.

"This acquisition marks our second Fairfield Inn & Suites and our third Marriott-branded hotel," Estes added. "We are confident that our familiarity with the brand, coupled with Milestone's expertise and comprehensive approach to property management, will allow us to quickly ramp up operations and position the hotel as the upper midscale destination of choice for visitors to the area."

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.
