MCR Acquires Hampton Inn by HIlton in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

USA, New York City, New York. January 09, 2020

MCR, the fifth-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, has acquired the 149-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Philadelphia/King of Prussia in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

The newly renovated hotel is less than a mile from the East Coast's largest shopping center, the King of Prussia Mall. If the thought of braving the 3-million-square-foot mecca makes you want to run, run as fast as you can like a gingerbread man, don't fret! The smart cookies at the Hampton Inn have some sweet shopping strategies to share.

Fuel Up With Free Baked Goods

A hot breakfast — and plenty of coffee — awaits you at the Hampton Inn. As you dine, browse the mall's directory of 450 retailers using the hotel's complimentary fast Wi-Fi. Make a list — and check it twice!

Spend Some Dough — and Downtime

Shopping on a Saturday? That's a half-baked idea. Congestion peaks in the late afternoons on weekends. Instead, pick a Tuesday or Wednesday morning, then settle in for a long winter's nap — or a viewing of Lifetime's guilty pleasure The Magical Christmas Shoes — in your plush Hampton Inn bed.

Get Piece-of-Cake Exercise

Work off those confection calories! "King of Prussia Mall is a great place to get your steps in," says Kathy Smith, the mall's director of marketing. Strolling every mall aisle and corridor is equivalent to walking the entire width of Manhattan — twice. The icing on the gingerbread: The Hampton Inn has a 24-hour fitness center where you can prep your biceps for the shopping haul.

The Hampton Inn by Hilton Philadelphia/King of Prussia is located at 530 West Dekalb Pike and features:

· 149 pet-friendly guestrooms with mini-refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers

· Free hot breakfast — take it to go!

· Free fast Wi-Fi

· A 24-hour fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights

· A business center with printing, faxing, copying and audiovisual services

· More than 600 square feet of meeting and event space for approximately 40 people

· Complimentary parking

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
