Banyan Investment Group Acquires and Will Operate 110-Room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas

USA, Houston, Texas. July 17, 2019

Banyan Investment Group, an Inc. 5000 recognized hotel investment and management company that acquires and manages select-service hotels in the United States, today announced that it has acquired and will operate the 110-room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas.

"We continue to seek institutional quality assets, such as the Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland, in major markets with numerous demand generators," said Andy Chopra, founding principal and chief investment officer, Banyan Investment Group. "The hotel benefits from its location within Pearland Town Center, a popular mixed-used development with 937,000 square feet of open space location within the South Houston marketplace that includes 140 specialty stores, 234-unit apartment complex building and more than 50,000 square feet of office space. The hotel requires minimal capital expenditures, and we are confident the property will achieve its economic objectives with immediate cash flow."

Situated in the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway Street in the "Energy Capital of the World," the five-story hotel is just 15 minutes from NRG Stadium (home of the NFL's Houston Texans) and within 20 minutes of the Texas Medical Center, downtown Houston and William P. Hobby International Airport. All guest rooms, which underwent a recent renovation in 2016, contain luxurious linens, pillow-top mattresses, complimentary high-speed Internet access, refrigerator work desk, 32-inch HDTV and microwave. The hotel also provides meeting space for up to 60 people, business center, 24/7 fitness center and outdoor pool. Guests are invited to dine at The Bistro, serving breakfast and dinner daily, or to pick up quick bites and coffee at the hotel Starbucks.

"Home to some of America's largest corporations, including Philips 66 and Sysco, Houston is well on its way to becoming the third largest city in the United States," Chopra added. "We appreciate the economic diversity provided by South Houston's submarkets, and Pearland particularly stood out due to its standing as the fastest growing suburb in one of the fastest growing MSAs in the country."

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.
