New GM Evelyn Mdoumba Will Lead Property Reboot With "Hilton Cleanstay With Lysol Protection" Program

USA, Germantown, Tennessee. June 03, 2020

McNeill Hotel Company's 112-room Hampton Inn Athens in Athens, Georgia re-opened for guests on June 1. The property is located at 2220 W. Broad Street in the Athens medical district, and nearby the University of Georgia, the historic Morton Theater and the University of Georgia Performing Arts Center.

Leading the reopening of the property, which had closed in mid-March due to the pandemic, will be recently appointed General Manager Evelyn Mdoumba. Evelyn has been part of the hospitality industry for 17 years, starting as an Executive Housekeeper and eventually taking on the role of General Manager in 2010 at a Hampton Inn in Huntsville Alabama. She has since managed two other hotels.

"I want to welcome Evelyn to the McNeill Hotel Company family and extend my congratulations to her on her new role as GM of our popular Hampton Inn Athens property," said McNeill Hotel Company President & COO Mark Ricketts. "Athens is an outstanding college town and regional medical center and we are proud to belong to and contribute to this great community."

"In partnership with Hampton by Hilton," Ricketts continued, "Evelyn and the entire team at Hampton Inn Athens will remain committed to going ‘above and beyond' to insure that the hotel meets or exceeds all sanitation and cleanliness standards that have been established by Hilton."

The Hampton Inn Athens (GA) will also feature elevated processes and team member training to help Hilton guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to checkout.

Developed in collaboration with RB, the maker of Lysol and Dettol, and in consultation with Mayo Clinic, this program includes the Hilton CleanStay Room Seal; "10 High-Touch, Deep Clean Areas," extra disinfection of the most frequently touched guests room areas - to include light switches, door handles, TV remotes, thermostats and more; and emphasis on Contactless Check-In, provided by Hilton's award-winning Digital Key technology, accessed on guest devices through the Hilton Honors mobile app.

This program will be integrated with McNeill Hotel Company's own enhanced cleaning protocol implemented at its 25 owned and managed properties.

Mobile Technology: New Era of Digital Transformation


Though it's difficult to ascribe any affirmative value to the pandemic, it did push the hotel industry into a new era of digital transformation. Out of necessity, hotels quickly adopted all forms of mobile technology, as a means to minimize the risks of infection and to maximize a seamless guest experience. The goal was to reduce guest touchpoints but still deliver access to all property services, while maintaining social distancing measures. As a consequence, mobile technology providers created next-gen products and services like never before. In addition to mobile check-in/out, mobile room keys, and contactless payment methods, hotels are now implementing branded concierge apps, guest messaging platforms, enhanced translation devices, and website chat bots. Smart rooms, voice and facial recognition, robotics, and A.I. technologies are on the near horizon. The January Hotel Business Review will report on how some hotels are integrating mobile technologies into their operations to provide their guests with a ground-breaking digital experience.
