Westin adds small meeting areas
Westin Hotels and Resorts is introducing a new workspace model to meet the needs of today’s business traveler. Dubbed Project Hive, the interconnected workstation can be booked by the hour and features video conferencing, printers, floor-to-ceiling white boards, and media:scape by Steelcase technology that allows participants to access and share digital information. “The one-size-fit-all small meeting spaces and traditional business centers no longer support the way today’s mobile traveler works,” says Brian Povinelli, global brand leader for Westin Hotels. “While a hotel room or lobby is a place where you can do work, this workspace was specifically designed as a smart room.” The new workspace is currently available at The Westin Boston Waterfront and The Westin Arlington Gateway Hotel, with plans to roll out globally through 2013.
