Dora Brothers Plans Two Hotels Near New Indianapolis Stadium

. October 14, 2008

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, February 05, 2006. Demolition on several vacant warehouses west of the new Stadium here will begin this week, making way for two new hotels. Tim and Bob Dora of Dora Brothers Hospitality Corp. purchased a 2-acre parcel from the city for $2.2 million for their new hotels.

Tim Dora said city officials helped the company find and acquire the land after it was forced to sell its Comfort Inn at 530 S. Capitol Ave. under eminent domain laws. The hotel was in the footprint of the new stadium. The state paid the Dora's $12.8 million for the 143-room hotel.

The two new hotels- an eight-story, 113-suite Staybridge Suites and a six-story Comfort Suites Hotel with 135 rooms, both in the 500 block of West Street- are within walking distance of the stadium.

Dora Brothers owns hotels across Central Indiana, including in Fishers, Carmel and Plainfield. The company also owns the Best Western at 410 S. Missouri St., south of the RCA Dome, and is converting it into a Holiday Inn Express this summer.

Social Media: Essential Interaction

As important as social media has been to hotels as a way to engage guests and drive direct bookings, it is becoming even more essential for hotels to implement a comprehensive social media strategy. All the major platforms have users numbering in the hundreds of millions - and in some cases, billions of users - so it is imperative for hotels to have an established presence on those massive channels. The goals of social media outreach are relatively clear-cut - identify and interact with current and prospective guests; create a brand voice that resonates with your target demographic; promote products, services, special offers, and contests; and acquire market data to support your business analytics. This is accomplished by creating imaginative and shareable content in order to give your brand maximum visibility, generate bookings, and keep guests interacting with your business throughout the entire customer journey. The February Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are successfully executing social media strategies for the benefit of their operations.
