Blue Water Development Opens Comfort Inn & Suites, Daytona Beach Oceanfront

USA, Ocean City, Maryland. March 31, 2020

Blue Water Development, a luxury developer specializing in commercial and hospitality properties on the East Coast, is pleased to announce the opening of Comfort Inn & Suites, Daytona Beach Oceanfront on February 1, 2020. Formerly The Mayan Inn, this fully-renovated hotel is the company's first property in Florida and brings its total number of hotels to ten.

"We jumped at the opportunity to bring the Blue Water family to Florida and the Comfort Inn and Suites brand to Daytona Beach," said Todd Burbage, Blue Water CEO. "We'll be owning, operating and managing every aspect of this property, so we were immediately attracted to its amazing location. We're excited for guests to begin, or continue, enjoying one of America's most popular vacation destinations from the comfort of our newly renovated, oceanfront accommodations."

With a bright, modern design that reflects Daytona's vibrant coastal atmosphere both inside and out, the resort-style property features beautifully appointed common areas; 112 total guest rooms; an oceanfront pool, sun deck, and tiki hut; and a meeting space ideal for business groups and weddings.

The hotel's 98 standard guest rooms are equipped with premium bedding, a flat-screen TV, and a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffeemaker, while its 14 family-friendly efficiency suites also include full kitchens. In addition, guests staying in one of the hotel's 76 ocean-facing rooms will enjoy a private balcony, perfect for viewing the famous Florida sunrises.

To prepare for a day of fun on the resort town's 23-miles of "World's Most Famous Beach", at the pier, Daytona International Speedway, or countless shopping destinations, guests can take advantage of a complimentary hot breakfast, a sundries shop, or on-site laundry facilities.

While guests will be able to experience Blue Water's signature hospitality during Daytona's event-filled February, the local community will get a chance to do the same when the hotel hosts an official ribbon cutting and grand opening in early March.

"We're obviously very excited to welcome our first guests, but we're also very proud to join the Daytona Beach community," said Burbage. "We look forward to meeting many of its members in March, and we look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with both Volusia County and Florida in the future."

Comfort Inn & Suites, Daytona Beach Oceanfront is located at 103 South Ocean Ave., Daytona Beach, Florida, 32118.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
