A full-scale renovation of Embassy Suites Downtown (Old Market) has now begun with an aggressive, seven-days-a-week construction schedule ensuring the hotel meets the July target completion date, says Regional Director of Sales and Marketing Kristen Blattert. In the months before the project launched, Blattert oversaw communications to clients to provide a consistent message of what to expect as the project progresses, to minimize interruptions in service, and to make sure options were available.
It’s all about cultivating connections, says Blattert, which directly reflects the renovation project itself.
“We are looking at a ‘Rustic and Refined’ theme with old-town transportation as the heart of it: images of cars, buses, trains, bikes,” she says. Graphics in guest suites and throughout the common areas of the hotel will showcase downtown Omaha’s history as a transportation hub and create a community-focused interior that will make this Embassy Suites truly unique.
But there’s another facet of the connections premise that guests will notice immediately upon entering the hotel for their first post-renovation visit, Blattert says. The hotel atrium is being modified to provide more seating that will make it easier for people to meet up and will facilitate collaboration.
“The new design will be inviting. It will encourage people to meet, and network, and spend time together,” she explains. “That’s what our hotel—our brand—is all about; people come to us because of the two-room suites. They want to gather and socialize.”
