Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


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.
