The September edition of Boutique Hotelier magazine is out now, and features an interview with cover star and brand new chic Tunbridge Wells’ boutique, Warwick Park.
The jam-packed issue, now available to read online here, shines the spotlight on the impressive new 39-bed hotel, which opened in July without a general manager, just a tight knit team of directors overseeing operations.
Also in this edition, we hosted a special roundtable in partnership to discover exactly where the market looks to be heading next in terms of technology.
We gathered together some of the industry’s top hoteliers and tech experts at The Arch in London to discuss keeping up the latest trends, customer expectations and how to balance the books when it comes to upgrading.
We also speak to Robin Sheppard this month, founder of Bespoke Hotels, to hear all about the Bespoke Access Awards. Launched in a bid to change attitudes within the hospitality industry, he is championing hotels to be innovative in their approach to design for disabled guests, and not just commit to a box-ticking exercise.
An interview with PJ Kenny from The Hoxton is another highlight for the September issue, as he shares some of his secrets on striking a chord with locals, and we look at illustrations for the proposed new Soho House London project, The Ned, which is due to open in the capital in spring next year.
With the trend for health and wellness showing no signs of abating, we get to grips with some of the predicted movements happening in the sector over the next 12 months and find out how you can draw in consumers and cash in.
Keith Griffiths opened Wales’ first contemporary arts hotel in August and we speak to the ambitious designer about how the venture works and his plans to build up a creative following in the region.
