Akron’s BLU-Tique Hotel allies with Marriott as it plans to reopen

The BLU-Tique Hotel in downtown Akron is having all set to reawaken from a COVID-19 pandemic slumber under the same ownership but with a new branding and advertising and marketing husband or wife, Marriott.

The BLU-Tique at Key and Market place streets is now component of Marriott International’s Tribute Portfolio, a selection of additional than 55 independently owned upscale boutique motels close to the environment. Marriott, with some 30 brands, is the world’s biggest lodge operator dependent on number of rooms.

The possession team of the 71-place BLU-Tique, which has been closed given that mid-March 2020, approach to reopen the hotel afterwards this year. (Owners at this time are unwilling to say when they assume that will happen.) When it does reopen, the hotel restaurant will have a revamped clean, farm-to-desk, Mediterranean-themed menu. The hotel’s original administration staff, Medina-based mostly Riley Lodge Group, stays in put.
