USA, Fairfield, New Jersey. November 14, 2019

Paramount Hotel Group, a premier third party hotel management company, announced today that it has been awarded the management contract for the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel & Suites in Fairfield, New Jersey. Paramount Hotel Group CEO David Simon made the announcement.

Each of the hotel's 204 rooms includes complimentary Wi-Fi, a large work desk and ergonomic chair, mini-refrigerator and HDTV with premium channels. Suites feature additional space, a separate bedroom, living room and sofa bed. The hotel also houses Nectar, a full-service bar and trendy restaurant serving Fine American Cuisine using natural and locally grown ingredients, a 24-hour fitness center, indoor pool and business center.

Conference room capacity at the Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield is plentiful with over 16,000 sq. ft. of recently renovated meeting and event space. The hotel's largest conference room can accommodate up to 400 attendees, and its flexible ballrooms can accommodate any size business or social event, including weddings.

The Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield is conveniently located near major area highways and in close proximity to Meadowlands Expo Center, Newark International Airport, New York City and the recently opened American Dream Expo in nearby Secaucus, NJ. For guest convenience, the hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service within a five mile radius of the hotel.

"The Doubletree by Hilton Fairfield, NJ is a hotel with a long and storied history for me, one that began when I built the hotel in 1984 and continued for the next 14 years - through 1998 - when I managed the property," said Simon. "Originally developed as a Sheraton, the hotel has seen several brand changes including Radisson, Prime and Crowne Plaza. Today, carrying the Doubletree by Hilton flag, the hotel has been totally upgraded and is poised to achieve new levels of success and I am glad to be able to come back home, as it were, to help make that happen."

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
