Mullet Travel is a new term that was coined by the Wall Street Journal editor Jacob Passy and promoted by Hotel News Now Editor Stephanie Ricca. Mullet Travel, is the new term for “bleisure;” the combination of business and leisure travel that has emerged from those who continue to work remotely. The use of remote offices has proven it is not a passing trend and has become familiar for many industries. The COVID-19 pandemic helped create this transformation of business travel, as many business trips now resemble the mullet hairstyle— business up front, fun behind the scenes.
At the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood, we have embraced the Mullet Travel trend as we are now seeing it more and more often. The business travelers that stay at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood are often visiting local companies or attending offsite meetings and events being held with us. These travelers will often add additional nights to their stay to experience the local area and sites. Essentially “bleisure” makes business travel more fun. Afterall, traveling can be incredibly stressful – especially when it involves lengthy flights and tedious car rides. Why not end your business trip with pleasure? A perk of staying at the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood is our convenient location and accessibility. We are centrally located between Boston and Providence, making the Four Points Norwood an ideal location for Mullet Travel. The best part, you can avoid staying in the city and paying high hotel rates but are still close to many of the local attractions. At the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood, parking is always ample and complimentary unlike city properties, making it ideal for all types of travelers. If you did not travel by car, you can easily take a train or taxi to Boston to take in a baseball game at Fenway Park or attend a concert or sporting event at nearby Gillette Stadium.
Of course, we are the ideal setting if you prefer a “staycation” as well. Take some extra time for yourself to unwind and relax after that big meeting. Guests are welcome to enjoy all the benefits of the Four Points by Sheraton Norwood, including our award-winning restaurant, One Bistro. Have a seasonal cocktail at the bar, take a swim at the pool, or enjoy a walk along the nature trail (located behind the hotel) – or if you need a quiet space to prepare for a presentation, inquire with our sales department about our state-of-the-art conference center and affordable all-inclusive package pricing.
