USA, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. May 21, 2020

Marcus Hotels & Resorts®, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE:MCS), is temporarily closing additional properties across its portfolio. This decision includes all of the following hotels owned by the Company that are currently still open, The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee; The Platinum Hotel in Las Vegas; Hilton Madison Monona Terrace in Wisconsin; and the AC Hotel Chicago Downtown in Chicago. Additionally, with respect to the hotels that we manage for third-parties, we are working with the owners of those properties to temporarily close the hotels or transition management.

"Our top priority in this unprecedented time, as it has always been through our history, is focused on the safety and well-being of our associates, guests and community. Like so many businesses today, we are presented with difficult decisions. Given the drastic and ongoing challenges facing our industry and business, we are closing additional properties across our portfolio and hope this decision will also help our nation's efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus," said Michael R. Evans, President of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. "These continue to be especially trying times, and we remain committed to diligently helping our associates that have been most adversely impacted by this situation. Amidst these challenges, our underlying hope is that we will only be closed for a short period of time and our team will soon be back together welcoming guests through our doors."

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
