GCommerce | October 17, 2022
Like all hotels and other key players in the hospitality industry, one of our clients, a mid-size northwest hotel brand, spent much of 2020 and 2021 pivoting their marketing campaigns and brainstorming how to navigate the “new normal” when it came to travel.

Greenwood Hospitality | October 29, 2020
When the historic Hotel Paso Del Norte began a full-property renovation three years ago, the hotel’s leadership had a vision to restore the property to its former glory. In addition to completely new furniture, fixtures, and amenities in guestrooms and public areas, the historic hotel is now one of the first Autograph Collection hotels in Marriott International’s portfolio to make use of bipolar ionization to purify and sanitize air on-property at all times.

By Erich Baum Portland, Maine, is the northernmost outpost of the Atlantic Seaboard, host to a six-month winter and minor league hockey. A small, third-tier city, with steady but slow economic growth, Portland's downtown hotel inventory recently grew from five to ten properties over a six-year period.
