. February 07, 2014

La Quinta, CA - February 7, 2014 - Vesta Hospitality, together along with its partner Pathfinder Partners, LLC, today announced that it has acquired the Homewood Suites in La Quinta, California. Rick Takach, President and CEO of Vesta, made the announcement.

Vesta has been managing the property for the past four years. As a result, the company has a deep understanding of the 129-suite hotel, as well as its unique features and market strengths.

Pathfinder Partners is a San Diego-based real estate investment firm that seeks out and invests in value-add real estate opportunities.

“We are excited to partner with Pathfinder and add the La Quinta Homewood Suites to our portfolio,” said Takach. “There is no question that our management experience at the property helped us make this decision. It's one thing to look at a balance sheet but when you can couple that with the human element; that is knowing the hotel's culture, clientele and what makes it successful, you can make a truly informed decision.”

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
