Interstate Partners With SCG American for Development of New Le Méridien Hotel in Orange County, California

USA, Arlington, Virginia. February 06, 2019

Following a signing ceremony that took place yesterday, Interstate Hotels & Resorts today announced its executed management agreement with New York City-based SCG America (SCGA) - the company leading the development of a new Le Meridien hotel in Orange County, California. Construction is anticipated to commence Q3 of 2019 with the hotel slated to open in 2021. This latest management contract is part of the company's strategy to grow its high-end hotel portfolio and follows news of Interstate's two Westin hotel additions (Alexandria and Portland, Maine) and the historic Hill Top House Hotel luxury destination retreat project in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.

“Our goal from day one, upon selecting the global lifestyle Le Meridien brand, was to ensure that we chose the most respected, quality service and product-oriented operator that can deliver on our promise,” said Winfred Zhang, president and CEO of SCG America.

“We are honored to be working with SCG America to open a Le Meridien hotel, a project that will inject vibrancy into the California hospitality scene,” said Michael J. Deitemeyer, president and CEO of Interstate Hotels & Resorts. “Partnering with incredible brands like Le Meridien and quality developers like SCGA furthers the momentum of where Interstate is headed.”

Inspired by the brand's French heritage - born in 1960s Paris during an era of glamorous travel, the new Le Meridien hotel will feature approximately 400 mid-century modern designed guestrooms and suites as well as the brand's innovative signature lobby concept that transforms the traditional lobby into a communal coffee house atmosphere by day and sophisticated cocktail lounge by night. Echoing the brand's distinctly European spirit of savouring the good life, the hotel also feature a signature restaurant and rooftop bar, well-equipped fitness centre, swimming pool, on-site spa, and 39,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space ideal for convention business, leisure and group travel.

In addition to Le Meridien, Interstate Hotels & Resorts is accelerating with a global outlook and a robust mix of projects in the pipeline. Interstate's depth of experience across all lodging segments and asset classes drives results in each of its managed hotels worldwide.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
