Urgo Hotels & Resorts and Triumph Development Joint Venture Opens Residence Inn by Marriott Breckenridge

BETHESDA, MD. / BRECKENRIDGE, CO. December 22, 2016 – A joint venture between Urgo Hotels & Resorts and Triumph Development, LLC, today announced the opening of the 129–room Residence Inn by Marriott Breckenridge in Colo. The joint venture developed and owns the hotel, with Urgo managing the property going forward.

“This hotel marks the first Marriott-branded hotel in Breckenridge, one of the nation’s most popular ski destinations, as well as the market’s first new hotel in over two decades, ” said Mathew Jalazo, vice president of development at Urgo. “The property further benefits from its close proximity to the Denver International Airport, eliminating the need to travel through Vail Pass.

“We remain very bullish on Breckenridge, a year-round resort area that attracts any number of outdoors people, including skiers, golfers, bikers, hikers, mountaineers, fishers and kayakers. The town regularly ranks as one of the two most visited ski destinations in the United States and looks primed for continued growth.”

Located across from the Village Base Area and QuickSilver Chair Lift, the hotel is situated in the heart of downtown Breckenridge adjacent to the city's shopping and entertainment with more than 75 dining options and over 160 shops within walking distance. The hotel was designed to showcase the surrounding mountains. Two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows open the lobby to breathtaking vistas, while the lobby bar features comfortable seating areas opening onto an outdoor terrace with stunning views of the Tenmile Mountain Range. A year-round, heated, outdoor pool and patio also provide remarkable outlooks over the town and the surrounding valley.

The hotel offers ski lockers and a ski valet service that provides seamless ski drop off at the hotel and pick up at mountainside. All custom-designed suites offer full kitchenettes and sitting areas, creating comfortable accommodations for both overnight guests and longer-term visitors to the resort. The hotel appeals to both leisure travelers and business groups and offers approximately 1700-sqare feet of meeting space for meetings and conferences.

“The addition of the Residence Inn by Marriott Breckenridge closes out a record development year for Urgo, ” Jalazo added. “In 2016, we opened seven new development projects which translates into 28 percent year-over-year portfolio growth. 2017 looks equally promising, with a pipeline of six properties under construction and five in the development phase.”

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
