Philadelphia's New Notary Hotel Welcomes Jim McSwigan as General Manager

USA, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. September 05, 2019

Opening early Summer 2019, The Notary Hotel, Autograph Collection, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jim McSwigan as the property's General Manager.

An energetic, talented and driven international hotel brand General Manager with more than three decades of professional experience, Jim has a passion for delivering first rate service. Previously serving as General Manager at Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown and Atlanta Marriott Perimeter Center, he maintains excellent relationships with guests, with a strong emphasis on encouraging repeat business. Throughout his career, McSwigan has a proven record of running successful operations that grow business, nurture associates and maximize profits.

"I'm thrilled to be joining The Notary team at the very beginning of the hotel's story," McSwigan said. "I can't wait to build the property into something special for our guests."

Located in the heart of Philadelphia, The Notary will fuse the city's unique soul with its historical legacy, reinvented as a place where 1920s-era grandeur meets modern hospitality. The historic former City Hall Annex building (listed on the National Registry of Historic Places) has been updated with design seamlessly intertwining styles and motifs from the past several centuries, resulting in a sense of timelessness that no other spot in Philadelphia can match. With the echoes of history reverberating through its hallowed halls, the Notary Hotel encourages visitors to leave their own mark on the City of Brotherly Love.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
