Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The hotel was opened seven years ago on Boylston Street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. 

The property is currently owned by the Irish government. Anglo Irish Bank Corp., an Irish bank, once held a controlling interest in the Boston hotel but control was transferred to the government after the bank was nationalized during the financial crisis.

Initial bidding will begin in November and a sale is expected to be approved in court by the start of 2016.
