Dolce International, the global hospitality company specializing in the meetings experience for its customers, announced today that it will take over management of the 284-room Bedford Glen Hotel, just outside of Boston. Dolce will also oversee a $12 million makeover to the former Renaissance Hotel, improving the overall guest and meeting experience, including cutting edge technology, creative and professional meeting planners and the Dolce Difference level of training. This marks Dolce's first property in Boston and the 22nd for the company’s portfolio.
During the next 12 months, the Bedford Glen Hotel will undergo an extensive renovation and restyling to its exterior and interior, including its guest rooms, meeting rooms, public spaces, fitness room, pool area, restaurant and bar. Once completed, spacious guest rooms will boast elegant furnishings and luxurious soft goods, with contemporary bathrooms, all overlooking gardens. The newly expanded fitness center will feature the most current equipment, sound system and LCD televisions. A dining room exclusive to meeting groups will be added. Guests can also expect complimentary wireless internet access in the lobby areas, restaurant and lounge and high-speed internet access in all meeting rooms. The hotel will remain open during the redo. It is Dolce's intent to work with the local community to gain approval on plans to expand the property's meeting space an additional 25,000 square feet, which would allow Bedford Glen to attract and accommodate larger meeting groups.
Set amidst 24 acres of countryside, in a historic area on the outskirts of Boston, the Bedford Glen Hotel serves as a charming leisure or meeting destination. Facilities include 13,000 square feet of meeting space including three ballrooms and 22 meeting and breakout rooms; outdoor courtyards, and amenities such as a full business center and high-speed Internet access. The hotel is also home to the restaurant Bistro 44 and a Starbucks Internet cafe. Recreational activities include fitness center, indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, tennis courts, hiking trails, bowling, as well as championship golf courses nearby. The hotel is just 30 minutes from downtown Boston, 45 minutes from Logan international Airport and short distance from the region's high tech corridor.
