Hey, you got your museum in my hotel. Well, YOU got your hotel in my museum. That sums up the 21c Museum Hotels concept that’s finding success in tier 2 cities such as Louisville, Nashville and Oklahoma City. Glenn talks with Craig Greenberg, the company’s president about this very interesting hotel brand. 21c founders Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson love contemporary art, by creating brand mixing hospitality and art. This is a fascinating look into an emerging hotel brand.
But first, Glenn speaks with Bruce Ford, SVP Business Development of Lodging Econometrics. They talk about the just released 2Q new construction pipeline report. Then they talk about the future of immersive hospitality focusing on the freshly announced Star Wars hotel coming to Walt Disney World. They also discuss the emergence of a 48-hour guest cancellation policy, which started with Marriott and then spread to Hilton. Is it good for owners or customers? Listen now and find out.
