Royal Hotel Investments Breaks Ground on Home2 Suites in Covington, Georgia

USA, Covington, Georgia. May 06, 2021

Royal Hotel Investments (RHI) has broken ground for a Home2 Suites by Hilton in Covington, Georgia, which is located 35 miles east of Atlanta.

"This hotel emphasizes our company's long-term commitment to the community," said Navin Shah, Chairman of RHI. "When our country comes back from the current COVID crisis, we will offer a safe, comfortable place for people to come together - a trusted site to collect their thoughts, rest their bodies, and gather with friends and family."

The hotel will have 100 rooms, including eight one-bedroom suites, and is expected to open in July of 2022. It is located immediately adjacent to two other hotels operated by RHI in Covington - a 110-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites open since 2017 and a 105-room Hampton Inn open since 2009.

"We are creating a hotel campus that allows travelers to choose the type of accommodations that best meet their needs," added Shah. "Our new hotel will be an all-suites property, which appeals to guests who like larger rooms and extra space to work or to relax."

The Home2 Suites, as the name suggests, combines the best features of a hotel and a home, with every guest room featuring a bedroom, a living room, and a kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, and full-size refrigerator.

Other notable amenities will be a business center; a fitness center; boardroom-style meeting space; a seasonal outdoor swimming pool; and a gazebo for sitting and relaxing.

"We are proudly part of a vibrant, thriving community that is growing as a business and tourist destination," explained Shah. "I firmly believe that our country and our community will not just bounce back - we will bounce forward, stronger than ever and sooner than expected."

Covington is often referred to as "the Hollywood of the South" based on its popularity as the filming location for many well-known movies and television shows, notably "The Walking Dead," "The Vampire Diaries," "Selma," and "The Dukes of Hazzard."

Formed in 2002, Royal Hotel Investments also operates a 99-room Hampton Inn & Suites in nearby Conyers plus a 20,000 sq. ft. shopping center in Covington.

Hotel Spa: Immense Transformation

There is no doubt that the Hotel Spa industry is undergoing an immense transformation as a result of the pandemic. New cleanliness standards for facilities, new safety standards for employees, and new ways of interacting with guests are now the New Normal, and will be for the foreseeable future. Given that some former patrons might be reluctant to return due to safety concerns, some spas are offering contactless experiences that utilize high-tech technologies to address wellness concerns like sleep, stress, pain, and immunity. Other spas are expanding their services to include life coaches, osteopaths, psychologists, and nutrition counselors in an effort to help their guests achieve a balanced lifestyle. Some spas are tapping into traditional Asian rituals to create programs such as sound healing, chakra balancing, and intuitive energy reading. Other programs emphasize re-connecting with Nature and have developed outdoor treatments such as Star Bathing, Feet in the Creek, and Treehouse meditations. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotel spas are doing to promote and manage their operations so guests can safely return for their health, wellness and beauty treatments.
