HVMG Converts Former Hilton Suites Phoenix to Embassy Suites by Hilton Phoenix Downtown North

USA, PHOENIX, Arizona. November 29, 2017

PHOENIX, AZ./ATLANTA, GA. November 29, 2017 - Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, today announced the completed conversion of the former Hilton Phoenix Suites to the 242-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton Phoenix Downtown North. HVMG, which purchased the hotel in 2016 as part of a joint venture, will continue to operate the property.

“Our familiarity with the market and hotel provided us the insight to realize both the property and our guests would benefit from a full reimagining,” said Robert Cole, HVMG president and CEO. “With properties in California, Colorado, Texas and Oklahoma, we continue to invest heavily West of the Mississippi in hotels in markets with barriers to new entry that can benefit from repositioning, as well as our proprietary management and marketing systems.”

Located at 10 East Thomas Road, the hotel is adjacent to the Thomas/Central Metro Light Rail Station, making the property accessible to Chase Field, Talking Stick Arena and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Suites offer separate private sleeping and living spaces, complimentary Wi-Fi and 55-inch flat-screen televisions. The hotel features a fitness center, indoor heated pool, business center and 4,350 square feet of flexible meeting space. Dining options include American-inspired cuisine at Salt River Tavern, free made-to-order breakfast and a nightly Evening Reception at the Atrium Bar.

“Our design and construction team worked closely with the brand to ensure a seamless transition from the former Hilton Phoenix Suites to the ‘like-new' Embassy Suites Phoenix Downtown North,” Cole noted. “From ground-up construction and renovations/repositionings to operations and financing assistance, HVMG has become a truly integrated, one-stop-shop capable of providing for a hotel's entire investment life cycle.”

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
