USA, Oxon Hill, Maryland. June 03, 2020

Hotelier OTO Development has announced the selection of Ted Fleurimond as the general manager of the company's Hyatt Place National Harbor hotel, which is expected to open later this year.

"The Hyatt Place National Harbor is an exciting project for us, and we are equally excited to have an experienced and talented general manager to see us through opening and beyond," said Corry Oakes, president and CEO of OTO Development. "Ted has been a terrific team member who has delivered outstanding results for a long time and we're happy to have him moving to the new property."

Fleurimond has more than 20 years' experience in the hospitality industry with several major hotel brands, including Hilton, Marriott, Holiday Inn, and Crowne Plaza. He brings several years of experience with other OTO Development properties to the new position, including the past six years as the general manager of the Hampton Inn & Suites National Harbor.

"I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to develop a team and open this amazing new hotel in National Harbor," Fleurimond said. "It's been very rewarding leading the team at the Hampton Inn here in the Harbor, and I look forward to having great success with our new property."

Prior to his tenure at the Hampton Inn, Fleurimond previously served as the general manager at the SpringHill Suites in Columbia, MD, and the SpringHill Suites in Baltimore. He has been a member of the National Harbor General Manager and Director of Sales Committee, working with other hotel members to increase the profile of the National Harbor area to attract visitors.

Fleurimond holds a business management degree from the College of Westchester New York and learned his passion for the hospitality industry from his parents, who both worked in the hotel industry.

The Hyatt Place National Harbor is an all-suite hotel located at 123 Waterfront Street in National Harbor. The 156-room, spacious hotel will feature harbor views, an on-site restaurant with open-air patio, fitness center, and 1,900 square feet of meeting space.

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation

Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
