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

The 7 Ps marketing mix of home-sharing services: Insights from over one million Airbnb reviews

The 7 Ps marketing mix framework is a widely used managerial tool that helps businesses identify the principal components of a service product. The 7 P elements include Product, Promotion, Price, Place, Participant, Physical Evidence, and Process.   The 7 Ps framework can assist marketers in making decisions regarding segmentation, positioning, and differentiation. Even for the same type of products with different brands, marketers can still drive higher sales through the improvement of a product’s marketing mix.     The empirical study about 7 Ps of home-sharing services   Building upon the 7 Ps marketing mix framework, I led a research team in a big-data, supervised machine learning analysis of over 1.14 million English reviews of 37,092 Airbnb listings in San Francisco (SFO) and New York City (NYC). We aimed to discover new meaningful business intelligence through the analysis of an immense quantity of online review information that is created by consumers in the cyber marketplace

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home.
