MCR Acquires 160-Room Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick at Rhode Island’s T.F. Green International Airport

USA, New York City, New York. July 23, 2018

MCR, the seventh-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, has acquired the 160-room Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick at Rhode Island's T.F. Green International Airport (PVD), which serves 4 million passengers annually.

Since 2017, T.F. Green International Airport has added six new
carriers, many overseas routes and nearly 8 percent more passengers.
Ranked the sixth-best U.S. airport in 2018 by Money magazine,
PVD was praised for its on-time arrival rate of 82 percent. The
airport's growth is nonstop: In 2021, JetBlue founder David Neeleman is
expected to launch his start-up airline, Moxy, at T.F. Green.

The Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick is a 10-minute walk
to T.F. Green's terminal, which offers domestic service from Allegiant,
American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest and United. Norwegian
Airlines flies to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Azores
Airlines provides seasonal service to Ponta Delgada and beyond.

“Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but it has one of the best
airports,” says Tyler Morse, CEO and Managing Partner of MCR. “Twenty
five percent of the U.S. population lives within 500 miles of PVD — and
when they're passing through Providence, we welcome them all at The
Hilton Garden Inn Providence Airport/Warwick.”

For those looking to get away from it all a little closer to home, the hotel is connected to the Iron Works Tavern, a community favorite housed in the historic 1867 R.I. Malleable Iron Works Factory building. There, locals and business travelers visiting the nearby offices of MetLife, UPS and Swarovski North America can raise a glass of Rise pale ale from the award-winning local Whalers Brewing Company.

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.
