Hotels for Cocktails and Drinks | The Early Air Way

The Walker Inn, connected to Normandie Club in Los Angeles, is bound to boost the bed&beverage business.

Designed by David Kaplan, the hotel is setting up to begin taking reservations beginning in September. Focused on quality luxury booze, the clientele is expected to enjoy a phenomenal dinner, winding down with cocktails, and continuing into the room.

The rooms were given a light and airy design, outside the normal for Kaplan who has specialized his talent on a mixture of darker tones. The rooms are not overly decorated as to be comfortable for the occupents and their drinks.

Hotels Connecting with Guests Via Messaging

Hotels are increasingly looking towards building loyalty from their guests by using messaging channels to connect and improve the experience. Upcoming travelers should expect hotels to offer the availability to message the hotel for services through a branded app, Facebook, WhatsApp, or other third party programs.

Using the hotel’s own app adds more functionality making that platform more enticing for users and guests, thereby encouraging more engagement. This method also adds another stream of data gathering for the hotel, which can be used to improve the guests stay at the hotel and plan renovations based on popular services.

By integrating the hotel response system into Facebook or WhatsApp, guests would not need to install a new app to communicate with the hotel. Another benefit is that people do not need reservations to communicate on Facebook, increasing interactions between potential guests and the hotel.

“It’s really about being where our guests want to be,” -Daniel Kerzner, Starwood’s vice president of digital loyalty.
