Sheraton Boston Needham Hotel, a 247-room full-service hotel located in Needham, Massachusetts on the I-95 Corridor has announced the completion of a $10 million renovation to all guest rooms, lobby, restaurant, indoor pool and meeting space. Refurbishments include new interior design elements, bedding, furniture, and carpeting. Bathrooms have been updated with shower conversions in all King rooms. Extensive upgrades were also made to all common areas and food & beverage offerings.

"We've had a strong rebound post-pandemic with business nearing 2019 levels," said Shawn Rodriquenz, the hotel's general manager. "We're seeing a significant uptick in corporate meetings demand and are thrilled to welcome local business leaders, guests and conference attendees to our newly renovated guest rooms and meeting spaces."

According to Rodriquenz, the hotel, which recently hosted participants of the US Open, is a sought-after destination for corporate, social, education, and sporting groups, as well as business and leisure travelers. Function facilities at the hotel comprise 18,751 square feet of flexible meeting space, including two ballrooms that can accommodate events for up to 300 and 150 people.

Group One Partners was the architect and interior designer for this project.

"Group One was honored to be selected for the Sheraton Needham project and we worked closely with ownership and the property to reimagine the public space and create a new inviting experience for guests as well as outside patrons. The renovations will help reaffirm the hotel's position in the market and is a great relaunch for the property coming out of the pandemic," said Harry Wheeler, AIA, Principal.

Sales & Marketing: Integrating Technology

The Sales & Marketing department is responsible for maximizing a hotel's revenue by developing programs to increase occupancy and to make profitable use of its meeting and leisure facilities. Increasingly, managers are utilizing sophisticated digital technology to help them achieve those goals. Virtual Reality is being integrated into booking engines which provide potential guests the opportunity to tour a property from afar, including wedding, event and food & beverage facilities. Voice Search has also become a popular marketing tool. Using smart home devices, it's now possible for customers to book hotels entirely through voice commands. Chatbots are becoming more ubiquitous as hotels seek to refine their online customer service. Chatbots can answer common questions, push key marketing messages, increase direct bookings, and even guide customers through the booking process. Finally, hotels are already preparing for the debut of the Metaverse and planning how sales and marketing departments will fully participate. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
