Hotel Equities to Manage Courtyard North Brunswick and Spring Hill Suites Woodbridge in New Jersey

ATLANTA, GA. November 6, 2017 – Atlanta-based Hotel Equities has been selected to manage two Marriott hotels in New Jersey, the Courtyard by Marriott in North Brunswick and the SpringHill Suites by Marriott in Woodbridge. The hotels compliment the firm’s strategic growth plans in the northeast corridor.

Owned by Main Street Hotel, LLC, the 124-room Courtyard North Brunswick is under construction less than 30 miles from Newark, NJ and Newark International Airport (EWR). The hotel expects to open in early 2018. The SpringHill Suites by Marriott Woodbridge expects to break ground in early 2018.

“Adding additional properties in the northeast is a strategic initiative for Hotel Equities,” said Joe Reardon, SVP of Business Development and Marketing. “The North Brunswick property enjoys a location that is convenient to local amenities and businesses as well as to multiple transportation options that will take our guests directly into the city.”

Conveniently situated less than five miles from Rutgers University, the state university of New Jersey in New Brunswick, the Courtyard by Marriott North Brunswick is very close to Rutgers Gardens, a favorite 60-acre spot featuring plant collections and walking trails that are open year-round to the public.

“We are proud to open the first Marriott modular hotel in New Jersey,” said Sunil Nayak, Main Street Hotel, LLC. “It is unique in terms of location, the kind of construction and style. In North Brunswick, this hotel’s location offers all the amenities within walking distance: restaurants and bars, the train station, supermarkets and theatres. In addition, I am excited to be with such a great management company as Hotel Equities for both spectacular Marriott projects.”

The Courtyard hotel includes meeting space for weddings, receptions and business meetings. The functional space is complemented by the business center, the indoor pool and the well-appointed 24-hour fitness center. The hotel’s Bistro serves breakfast, Starbucks® beverages and evening libations.

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.
