AC Hotel San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront Appoints Jenay Peters as Director of Sales

SAN FRANCISO, CA SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 – The AC Hotel San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront has appointed Jenay Peters as Director of Sales. Opening in October 2017, this European-inspired property is the perfect addition to South San Francisco’s growing biotech hub. Ideally situated between Silicon Valley and San Francisco, this 187-room hotel is located just 10 miles south of downtown San Francisco and 10 minutes from San Francisco International Airport. 
 


Jenay’s love of travel and new experiences has been present since childhood, making her career in the hospitality and tourism industry a natural fit. Her 12-year career within the industry began while at Howard University, where she got her start as Front Desk Lead at the Hotel Monaco, a Kimpton hotel in downtown Washington, DC. Since then, Jenay has held positions in operations, revenue, and sales at major hotel brands, luxury boutique and independent lifestyle properties, and a private membership club. She has assisted in the rebranding and launch of four hotels.
 


When Jenay heard about AC Hotels by Marriott and founder Antonio Catalan’s vision of a well-designed hotel with European soul, she was immediately intrigued and knew she had to be part of the expansion of this unique addition to the hospitality industry. As a Bay Area native, Jenay is excited to bring her industry and area knowledge to AC Hotel San Francisco Airport/Oyster Point Waterfront. 


“I look forward to connecting with travelers and meeting planners, and sharing my knowledge of all the great intricacies and exciting points of interest they can experience,” says Jenay. “I love being able to share hidden gems and sights, all within an arm’s reach of our new hotel.”
 


Jenay comes to the AC Hotel team from the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway in San Francisco, where she was Senior Sales Manager and Interim Director of Sales and Marketing, respectively. In her new role as Director of Sales, Jenay is responsible for growing and generating new business, developing and implementing business plans for revenue objectives, coordinating group and catering bookings, monitoring production of top accounts, and evaluating trends within the market. Jenay holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Howard University.

Social Media: Engagement is Key

There are currently 2.3 billion active users of social media networks and savvy hotel operators have incorporated social media into their marketing mix. There are a few Goliath channels on which one must have a presence (Facebook & Twitter) but there are also several newer upstart channels (Instagram, Snapchat &WeChat, for example) that merit consideration. With its 1.86 billion users, Facebook is a dominant platform where operators can drive brand awareness, facilitate bookings, offer incentives and collect sought-after reviews. Twitter's 284 million users generate 500 million tweets per day, and operators can use its platform for lead generation, building loyalty, and guest interaction. Instagram was originally a small photo-sharing site but it has blown up into a massive photo and video channel. The site can be used to post photos of the hotel property, as well as creating Instagram Stories - personal videos that disappear from the channel after 24 hours. In this regard, Instagram and Snapchat are now in direct competition. WeChat is a Chinese company whose aim is to be the App for Everything - instant messaging, social media, shopping and payment services - all in a single platform. In addition to these channels, blogging continues to be a popular method to establish leadership, enhance reputations, and engage with customers in a direct and personal way. The key to effective use of all social media is to find out where your customers are and then, to the fullest extent possible, engage with them on a personal level. This engagement is what creates a personal connection and sustains brand loyalty. The February Hotel Business Review will explore these issues and examine how some hotels are successfully integrating social media into their operations.
