Marshall Hotels & Resorts, a hotel management and services company that operates properties nationwide, has taken over management of five hotels, comprising a Holiday Inn, a SpringHill Suites, a Hampton Inn, a Hilton Garden Inn and a Residence Inn.
“As the pandemic continues and travel remains at a trickle of what it previously was, owners require operators with the experience to weather these types of downturns,” said Mike Marshall, the company’s president and CEO. “This marks our fourth major economic crisis since our founding, which has given us tremendous insight into operating during unfavorable conditions. We’ve learned firsthand what moves need to be made to preserve and eventually gain market share as the world awaits the return to a ‘new normal.’ With this depth of experience, we have been able to act as a guiding force for our owners.”
Holiday Inn NW Houston Beltway 8
Located within Houston’s Antoine business district, the six-story hotel is surrounded by numerous Fortune 500 companies, including Eaton, Amazon and General Electric. Other nearby attractions include Sam Houston Racepark, Willowbrook Mall and North Houston Bike Park. Hotel amenities include an on-site business center, an indoor pool and a 24/7 fitness center. Guestrooms are equipped with wireless internet access, a mini-refrigerator and a microwave oven.
SpringHill Suites Winchester (Va.)
The new build, all-suite hotel is located convenient to Old Town Winchester, Museum of the Shenandoah Valley and Clearbrook Park. Guests can enjoy an indoor pool, a 24/7 fitness center, a convenience store or more than 400 square feet of meeting space. Suites provide complimentary Wi-Fi and an oversized workspace.
Hampton Inn Adel (Ga.)
Situated off I-75 and adjacent to Cook County Airport, the three-story hotel is near Reed Bigham State Park and Moody Air Force Base. Each stay includes a complimentary, hot breakfast; an outdoor pool; free Wi-Fi and a 24/7 fitness center. Rooms feature a TV with in-room movie channels, a WaterPik showerhead, a curved shower rod, a large desk, free Wi-Fi access and a coffee/tea maker.
Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead (N.Y.)
Across the street from Tanger Outlets in Riverhead, the four-story hotel is located proximate to Splish Splash Water Park, the Hamptons and numerous vineyards. Hotel amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, a business center and 3,100 square feet of meeting space. Each room is outfitted with a Serta Perfect Sleeper bed, a microwave oven, a mini-refrigerator and a Keurig beverage brewing system. Marshall originally opened the hotel in 2008 for the current owner before temporarily stepping away, making this the second time the management company has handled operations for the property.
Residence Inn Long Island (N.Y.) East End
Located adjacent to the Hilton Garden Inn Riverhead, the four-story hotel’s suites offer full-size kitchens, free high-speed Wi-Fi and large TVs. Additional hotel amenities include a complimentary breakfast, fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool, outdoor pool, on-site barber and 5,676 square feet of event space.
“We are proud of the fact that we have not laid off or furloughed anyone on the corporate team,” Marshall said. “In addition to it being the right thing to do for our team members, it also allows us to maintain a deep bench strength for our owners. Collectively, we have realized that keeping hotels open is the better move for our portfolio than temporarily closing. Not only does it remove the possibility of having to re-ramp up, but it sends a clear message to the communities in which we operate that we are an active member attempting to help people and businesses through these extraordinary circumstances.”
