You may have noticed that each of my design staff is writing in our blog now. They are all terrific and I am fortunate to have such a talented group! So I hope you will enjoy their posts.
Last Monday, I was one of the speakers at the MS Governor’s Conference on Tourism. I was thrilled to do it. It was held at the Beaux Rivage Hotel and Casino on the MS Gulf Coast. My talk was on design for B&B, Lifestyle and Boutique Hotels. So I thought I would go through a few of the points with you here.
What a delightful and pleasant group of people I met! My audience was, mostly, the MS Bed & Breakfast group. I really didn’t realize how many beautiful and charming B&Bs were here in the state! It is a hard working group. They truly care about their guest’s comfort and enjoyment of their towns and cities. I was impressed. And I thank them for having me at their conference.
While on the coast I stayed at a beautiful B&B just a stone’s throw from the Beau Rivage. I was the guest of Walter and Katherine Blessey. This was my lovely room, with my own entrance and a view of the Gulf. You may want to check them out at https://www.chateauxblessey.com.
I will follow this post with some of the points that I presented in my talk. It was not a lengthy talk, but I felt it had a few good ideas. Most of our hotel designs are more contemporary than the average B&B, but the principals of design hold true.
And by the way, the few moments I was able to spend at the B&B were most relaxing and comfortable.
