AWH Partners Acquires Newly-Renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Albuquerque

USA, New York City, New York. September 02, 2019

AWH Partners, LLC, a privately held real estate investment, development and management firm, announces the acquisition of DoubleTree by Hilton Albuquerque, marking more than a dozen Hiltons and over 1,500 DoubleTree keys acquired across the United States - and the first hotel purchased in the growing New Mexico market - for the investment firm. Located in the heart of Albuquerque's Central Business District, the newly-renovated DoubleTree is the only hotel directly connected to the 300,000 square-foot Albuquerque Convention Center, giving the property a strategic competitive advantage over other full-service hotels in the area. Spire Hospitality, AWH's full-service hospitality management company, is now managing the 295-room DoubleTree Albuquerque and will begin implementing core strategies, leveraging the ownership and management companies' breadth of experience with the brand to grow operating revenues and profit margins.

"DoubleTree Albuquerque completed a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2018, including all guestrooms, public spaces and meeting rooms, and offers exclusive access to the Albuquerque Convention Center, which also recently completed a $23M+ restoration," says Russ Flicker, principal of AWH Partners. "The product and its location, coupled with the robust market growth, a healthy convention calendar and the hotel's proximity to tourism hot spots in Albuquerque, indicate we will continue seeing the significant upward momentum this property has seen since its renovation."

Poised in the heart of downtown, DoubleTree by Hilton Albuquerque's contemporary design features nuances of the Southwest with enviable views of the Sandia Mountains beyond the metropolitan location. The urban, full-service Hilton provides 8,100 square-feet of flexible meeting and ballroom space, along with direct, underground access to the expansive Albuquerque Convention Center. Icon Bistro invites guests for New Mexican-inspired breakfast classics, while the menu at Lounge 201 serves up lunch and dinner options in a modern, relaxed setting perfect for gatherings with friends, families and colleagues.

"Market research shows Albuquerque growing at a rapid rate, with an increasing concentration of high-tech companies moving to the destination, including a new 300-acre Facebook campus and a new Netflix production hub. More than 3,100 new high-tech related jobs have been added to the area in the last 18 months," says Chad Cooley, principal, AWH Partners. "This economic development and the draw of the beautiful locale is driving significant hotel demand. We're thrilled to establish AWH Partners presence in this alluring destination."

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.
