Horton Grand Hotel Partners with Stash Hotel Rewards

Historic San Diego Hotel Now Part of Nation's Largest Points-Based Rewards Program

. April 24, 2014

SAN DIEGO, CA - April 24, 2014 - Horton Grand Hotel, located in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, announced today that it has partnered with Stash Hotel Rewards, the nation's largest points-based rewards program for independent hotels. As a result of this new partnership, Stash members are now able to earn and redeem points at Horton Grand Hotel, a historic hotel that once played home to the legendary Wyatt Earp.

“The rich history of the hotel coupled with its remarkable location make the Horton Grand Hotel an extremely popular choice for the discerning traveler,” said Terry Sobkowiak, Director of Sales and Marketing at Horton Grand Hotel. “We provide our guests with an experience that's steeped in character and is unmistakably distinctive from the chain hotels in the area. By partnering with Stash, we're now able to strengthen our bond with these travelers by offering a rewards program that's as unique as the experience we provide.”

The Horton Grand Hotel was opened in 1986 after a meticulous rebuild joined San Diego's two most historic properties - The Grand Horton Hotel and Brooklyn-Kahle Saddlery Hotel. Purchased by a local San Diego businessman for $1.00 each, the buildings were deconstructed brick-by-brick, catalogued and stored until being rebuilt at the current location on Island Avenue. Today, the Horton Grand Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the past, while also providing the modern day amenities that independent travelers want.

"Wrought-iron balconies, a central courtyard where you can have after-work drinks under leafy trees—Horton Grand Hotel has an historic elegance to it," said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO, Stash Hotel Rewards. "It's great to walk outside and be in the heart of the Gaslamp restaurant and entertainment district. It's even better to come home to this calm, well-run hotel."

Travelers interested in earning points at Horton Grand Hotel can join Stash for free at www.stashrewards.com. Stash members earn five points for each dollar spent on eligible room rates and can redeem them at nearly 200 unique independent hotels across the U.S. Stash points never expire, and redemption is simple, without blackout dates or category restrictions found in many chain programs. Stash partner hotels also provide members with access to exclusive travel deals.

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.
