Hotel AV: LCD room service? Not yet
Is this a trend?
It appears that way, for now at least.
Recognizing that the competition for meeting space is heating up in this booming economy, as well as the appearance of unlikely competition from places like Kinkos and airport lounges, the hotel industry is rethinking how they manage meetings for clients. In some cases, theyve even redesigned the entire facility to set a bar that well exceeds what everyone else in the hotel industry is even able to attain.
For instance, take Marriotts Evergreen Conference Center in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Evergreen features an average good-quality Marriott-run hotel property, but one of the best Conference Centers in the US. Not only does each room feature either an in-room break bar that includes coffee, sodas, water, a self-serve candy bar, an ice cream cart and daily bakery selections, but it also features built-in T1 line access, DSL access, video and audio signal routing to every other conference room in the facility and also a bathroom within a 30-second walk to every meeting room. This bar is very hard to attain at many of Marriotts other facilities, or most other hotel chains for that matter.
