Major Disruptions to the Travel Industry and 3 of the Players at the Forefront

An interview with Shreyas “JR” Patel at EINPresswire - August 30, 2019

Shreyas ‘JR’ Patel, President and COO of Helix Hospitality, was interviewed by Candice Georgiadis recently, here is a portion of that interview:

Let’s jump to the core of our discussion. Can you share with our readers about the innovations that you are bringing to the travel and hospitality industries?

I recently wrote a piece of original content that was published in Green Lodging News titled “What About Those Sustainability & Green Initiatives?”. In it, I discuss the fixed life expectancy of certain items in hotel rooms plus the volume of renovation currently underway across the industry. Based on a conversation with a friend over drinks, I put a spotlight on the idea that sleek new energy-efficient features in our rooms just don’t justify the amount of waste our industry creates. Ultimately, I posed critical questions about how we think about sustainability in a systematic way and innovate accordingly. - Read the rest of the interview here.

Finding the lost-and-found program to fit your hotel

Shreyas "JR" Patel quoted at Hotel Management - July 29, 2019

Shreyas "JR" Patel, president of Helix Hospitality, said since his company’s hotels are all limited- and select-service, it generally does not end up with a substantial number of lost-and-found items. The management company tried out a few cloud-based lost-and-found management platforms in the past, he said, but they proved to be overkill. Instead, the company’s hotels now attempt to contact guests directly as soon as something is found. Though tracking down a lost item’s owner can be time consuming, Patel said the approach "is the ultimate expression of appreciation—you’re taking care of someone even though they’ve already left. That’s how you create guests for life."
