Montgomery Roth had the honor of sponsoring the Hotel and Lodging Association of Greater Houston's monthly luncheon yesterday. We met new Association Members and caught-up with our industry friends.

Turn Your Hospitality Interior Into A Luxury Experience, Not Just A Place To Sleep

Hotel interior design has shifted in recent years. Today, hotel designs must be multifunctional and cater to a range of guests. Years ago, hotels were secondary considerations; now, they're destinations in themselves. Every space in your hospitality interior should be designed with a strategy in mind for every type of guest you have – from businessmen to socialites, vacationers to quiet types.

If your hospitality interior is lackluster, you need a refresh. Take a look at a few ways to revamp your hotel and breathe a little life into a stale image.

News to Share: Piada Italian Street Food in Houston

Posted by Alina Rader

Mar 11, 2015 6:00:00 AM

We are very excited to announce that we are working on a new concept for the Houston market- Piada Italian Street Food. Piada was born from the belief that everyone is entitled to experience fresh, authentic Italian food, in a warm and inviting atmosphere. A fast casual, authentic Italian eatery serving hand rolled Piadas (a wrap using thin crust dough), Pasta Bowls, & Chopped Salads.

According to Brad Ervin, who is the Director of Construction and Development, Piada began as an idea scribbled on a napkin during a visit to Rimini, Italy. “Our chef found distinct charm in the family-operated food carts and corner markets scattered throughout the streets of the city, where the aroma of fresh basil, handcrafted cured meats and homemade cheeses filled the air. Our chef opened Piada based on the principles of passion and pride for quality ingredients and simplistic cooking techniques.”

5 Hotel Interior Design Elements That Translate Into Happy Guests

Posted by John Montgomery

Nov 13, 2014 11:09:00 AM

People have a tendency towards loyalty when it comes to hotels. Travelers, of course, try out new places for a new experience, but they typically always remember and revisit the hotels that provided them with the most enjoyable experience.

A happy guest results from incorporating interior design elements into your hotel that have guests’ best interests in mind. From big reconstruction overhauls to something as simple as anticipating the small elements a customer needs or expects, the goal of any hotel is to make guests feel taken care of while being treated to pleasing hotel design aesthetics and amenities.

When it comes to a hotel interior design for guest rooms, there are a number of simple yet functional elements to incorporate to fulfill the needs of every customer.

Here are five suggestions for incorporating interior design elements your hotel rooms that ensure satisfied guests:

1. Provide Perfect Placement For Power Outlets

Have you ever tried to move a nightstand or bed in a hotel room to get to a power outlet? Poorly situated power outlets are frustrating for your hotel guests. Today, travelers pack a number of tech devices – smartphones, iPads, laptops and gaming devices – and you need to provide a number of well-situated outlets so there’s zero inconvenience.

An easy-to-implement interior design idea is to provide properly placed outlets as a feature of bedside lighting fixtures. This way, when powering up a device, a guest doesn’t have to stand next to an outlet to send a text message, research a restaurant or do work. They may sit back and relax on the bed while they use their device.
