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.

Paul Weimer, VP of CBRE Hotels, noted the strong demand of Grand Cayman due to its beaches and strong airlift.  

“Ownership did an excellent job shepherding this property through the downturn and positioning it for sale. Our buyer jumped on the opportunity to acquire a top property in a very supply constrained market,” he said.

London & Regional reportedly owns some 15 hotels from Europe to the Caribbean. Its holdings include the London Hilton on Park Lane and the Fairmont Royal Pavillion Barbados.
