Springhill Suites Syracuse Carrier Circle

Yesterday, I attended the grand opening reception of the Springhill Suites Syracuse Carrier Circle and met with several Marriott managers. I am glad that Marriott is bringing an all-suite hotel to Syracuse. I like the blue and green theme, the lobby, the market, and the guestrooms --- it seems to me that this brand catches the hotel design trends very well. As several other Marriott brands are also undergoing some changes, I am expecting to see more refresh looks of Marriott properties in Syracuse in the near future.

  1. I am happy to hear that Marriot decided to bring themselves over here to Syracuse presenting an All-suite hotel. From the look of your album on Facebook, the interior design seems very "home" like and "welcoming". I think the reason why thy put the market at a hotel is for guest to buy what they need without having to go out of the hotel which is a great way to have your guests spend more money at the hotel. I think it was a great idea for Marriot to use earthy colors such as blue and green for "going green" kind of.Their guest rooms are lovely and new. It seems comfortable and very modern and up to date.

    However, though they are new hotel, do you think they will last in the years to come? Do you think they will be able to upkeep their hotel in Syracuse and be on top? What makes them different than the Sheraton located on the Syracuse Campus and what exactly do they have to offer that other hotels don't ?

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

Luxury vs. Millennials and Their Technology: The Ritz-Carlton (By Julia Shorr)

Embodying the finest luxury experience, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, LLC has been established since 1983. In 1998, Marriott International purchased the brand offering it more opportunity for growth while being independently owned and operated. They are known for their enhanced service level as the motto states, “Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen”.

How to choose the best credit cards for travel (By David Mai)

  Traveling in a Post-Pandemic World If there was one thing the pandemic taught us, it was that everybody became hesitant and unwilling to travel. Shaver (2020) of The Washington Post shared an interesting tidbit in which Americans were actually staying home less during the pandemic, according to research that tracks users' smartphone data.  The quarantine fatigue affected nearly everyone who lived an active lifestyle or loved to be out and about in the world. It was simply not a safe time, and too many regulations were in place that deterred consumers from traveling for leisure. Consequently, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the travel and hospitality industry. Yet, there is no doubt that people will yearn to travel again when the pandemic is fully lifted. Around this same time, credit card companies have developed unique ways to retain business with consumers who look to maximize rewards and benefits for their journey.
