Genius PR with RiverPlace Hotel in Portland, Oregon

Published by HotelBlogs under Hotel News

Genius PR with RiverPlace Hotel in Portland, Oregon

General Manager Ryan Kunzer spent three nights sleeping in a 24-geodesic dome as a way to promote the hotel’s newly renovated guest rooms, which were fresh from a $2.5 million makeover.

As a way to introduce the new look to locals and potential guests, RiverPlace has re-created a guest room inside the tent for all to see (literally). Kind of a genius PR stunt, if you ask us. No pedestrian who stumbles upon a pop-up bubble hotel in the middle of a public square would ever be able to pass by and not want to peek inside.

Prime Real Estate in Santa Monica Eyed for Hotel Projects

Published by HotelBlogs under Hotel News

Developers are pitching two hotel projects totaling more than 400 rooms along a prime stretch of coastal Santa Monica, California, that has seen little in the way of new hotel-room supply since the Art Deco era of the 1930s.

Owners of the 89-year-old Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows are pitching a plan to add a 21-story tower and 280 rooms near the corner of Ocean Avenue and Wilshire Boulevard. And two blocks south at Ocean and Santa Monica Boulevard, developers M. David Paul and Worthe Real Estate Group, along with noted architect Frank Gehry, are proposing a 22-story building that would include 125 hotel rooms and 22 condominiums.

If completed, both hotel towers would be among the tallest buildings in Santa Monica.

Break Out The Skates! Ice Rink Opens At LA’s Hyatt Regency

The Hyatt Regency Century Plaza made a splash yesterday by reminding us that Los Angeles does indeed celebrate winter – sort of – with the opening of a 3,000 square-foot tech-no-logic ice rink. Yeah, it’s not really an ice rink, but it’s about as close as Southern California and the Golden Coast are going to get.

Chicago, New York, Minneapolis Levy Highest Travel Taxes in U.S.

Published by HotelBlogs under Hotel News

Chicago, New York, Minneapolis levy highest travel taxes in U.S.

Chicago, New York and Minneapolis levy the heaviest travel-related taxes on visitors, while Portland, Ore.; Detroit; and Florida cities such as Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach taxed visitors the least, according to a recent report by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA).

Chicago visitors on a three-day, two-night stay will, on average, pay about $99 in taxes, while New York and Minneapolis visitors will pay about $95 and $89, respectively.

By comparison, Portland, which is helped by the fact that Oregon has no state sales tax, will generate $54.42 per visitor in travel taxes, or about 25 cents less than Detroit.
