The Hotel Group (THG), a leading national hotel management and investment company, announced today the completion of the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown's transformational renovation.

With newly redesigned public spaces and guestrooms, featuring the innovative WorkLife model, the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown thoughtfully and intentionally provides the best possible guest experience.

In addition to a refreshed Grab and Go Market, the hotel unveiled a brand-new dining concept, The Rail Bar & Bites, inspired by the historic local rail industry.

"THG is pleased to unveil our newly transformed Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown," stated Douglas Dreher, President and CEO The Hotel Group. "The hotel infuses the perfect blend of Kansas City's downtown ambiance into a modern guest stay through the newly created WorkLife guestrooms, new on-site restaurant, The Rail Bar + Bites, and refreshed lobby coffee shop, Full Steam. We appreciate our long-standing partnership with IHG and look forward to welcoming the community and our guests to our newly enhanced hotel."

The 385-room full-service property features over 14,000 square feet of versatile meeting space, including ten meeting rooms and function spaces ideal for business gatherings, social events, or weddings. The Crowne Plaza's premier location is seated in the heart of Downtown Kansas City, steps away from world-class dining, music, sporting events, and entertainment.

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
