Virtual Roundtable

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.

Already remodeled spaces, such as the onsite Carbon Beach Club eatery and reception area, now have European oak floors, raw rift white oak paneling, white walls, natural fiber fabrics and new lighting. Both spaces align with the design of the upcoming guestrooms that will also have teak, oak and natural fibers. The color palettes used were influenced by the landscape, and includes blue, taupe and other earth tones.
