Davidson Hotels & Resorts Welcomes Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa

ATLANTA, GA. November 16, 2017 – Davidson Hotels & Resorts has announced the addition of Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa to its growing portfolio. The sophisticated 550-room full-service resort in Monterey, Ca. is situated in the heart of one of the most beautiful coastal cities in California. The property, which will continue to operate under the Hyatt Regency brand, will be managed by Davidson Hotels & Resorts and will be owned by an affiliate of Fairwood Capital LLC – a real estate investment firm specializing in hospitality-related real estate.

“We are excited to embark on our third project with Davidson, leveraging their unrivaled experience with Hyatt, ” noted Todd Solmson, managing director of Fairwood Capital. “Davidson has been a tremendous operating partner of ours for many years and together we will implement a comprehensive plan to elevate the asset and guest experience in this beautiful property.”

Located in the center of the prominent California Highway 1 corridor, Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa is tucked away within a 22-acre property, nestled along the historic Del Monte Golf Course, the oldest continuously-operating golf course west of the Mississippi. Guests choosing to take advantage of onsite offerings can utilize more than 40, 000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meetings space, ace the full-service racquet club with six championship tennis courts, tee off on the historic 18-hole Del Monte golf course, lift in a 24-hour Stayfit™ fitness center, relax in the 12, 000 square-foot Marilyn Monroe spa and wine and dine in multiple food and beverage options inclusive of the TusCA Ristorante, Knuckles Sports Bar and Fireplace Lounge.

“The Fairwood team has proven to be exceptional investors and asset managers and we know they will be a strong addition to the Hyatt franchise community, ” said John Belden, president and chief executive officer of Davidson. “This will be our 11th full-service Hyatt hotel and we have tremendous confidence in the brand, its positioning and its strong offerings. Hyatt has been an important part of the Monterey community and together with Fairwood we will create an exciting new future for the property.”

Upon entering the elegant lobby, guests are welcomed with a calming water feature and soothing earth tone color scheme, complemented by the adjacent Fireplace Lounge which provides live, weekend entertainment for guests to enjoy while taking in views of the historic Del Monte Golf Course. If looking for a livelier gathering place, Knuckles Sports Bar is conveniently connected to the lobby and offers craft cocktails and outstanding food.

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.
