R+R Wellness at the Grand Hyatt Nashville is scheduled to open October 1.

"Like all spas, we experienced layoffs and closures at the beginning of the outbreak of the pandemic. Once we got the state-mandated go-ahead to re-open, our goal was to continue with our plans for opening our new spas, while getting out current properties and staff up to speed on our new ISM Covid-19 protocols that follow current CDC/WHO guidelines," said Ilana Alberico, CEO and Co-founder of ISM Spa. "We are blessed to work with so many wonderful developers and owners who trust us to operate their spa business."

ISM Spas have dominated the Southeast for more than a decade, with the company expanding its presence to the Midwest and West Coast. ISM works with property developers, resorts, day spas and hospital facilities to execute a spa operation that is profitable, sustainable and on-brand. ISM Branded Spa Concepts include Poseidon, Privai Wellness Spas, and R+R Wellness is a new brand concept envisioned by ISM co-founders Alberico and Christina Stratton, Chief Creative Officer.

"Every single design element of R + R Wellness is intentionally inspired for the ultimate sensory experience," said Stratton. "From the moment the guest enters the spa, we engage each of the five senses utilizing natural elements of earth, fire, water, wood, and metal to set the tone for the ultimate relaxation experience. We envelop the senses with aromatherapy personalized for well-being and balance while engaging the mind in our one-of-a-kind guided meditation experience lounges."

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
