Rhode Island's, Omni Providence Hotel, recently hired Burnell Goldman as general manager. His responsibilities include overseeing all departments of the hotel. Goldman is a 10-year veteran with Omni Hotel & Resorts and comes to Omni Providence Hotel from Omni Jacksonville Hotel in Florida, where he served as general manager since 2013.

 

“Burnell's extensive experience with Omni Hotels & Resorts makes him a great Omni success story,” says John Murtha, area managing director for Omni Providence Hotel. “His knowledge, passion and ability to embody our core values make him an invaluable asset to our team, and we are thrilled to welcome him to Providence.”

 

Goldman has also held a range of leadership positions for Interstate Hotels & Resorts Worldwise, working at properties in Chicago, New York, northern Virginia and Las Vegas.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
