California native Spivey brings over 14 years of luxury hotel sales management to her role as National Sales Manager for the Allegretto Vineyard Resort. A proven results-oriented sales professional with a can-do spirit, Spivey first started her hospitality career as the Sales Manager for Larkspur Hotels & Restaurants in Los Gatos, California, before heading up sales efforts for such esteemed properties as Hotel Los Gatos and the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa.

"When I saw the hotel for the first time, I thought it was an island of its own. Resting on the edge of this eclectic town was this grand hotel with so much to offer, but also an enormous amount of potential," says Spivey. "With over 200 wineries, the hot springs and a charming downtown, plus the incredible amenities offered at the resort, I am thrilled to share this property and region with new groups, both large and small.

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.
