Fortress Development announced new details about Avenue Bellevue, its luxury mixed-use project in downtown Bellevue, Washington. Located on the northwest corner of Bellevue Way and 8th St. - just opposite Bellevue Square, Lincoln Square and Bellevue Place - the two-tower development will boast 332 luxury residences and the Pacific Northwest's first-ever InterContinental® Hotel (www.intercontinental.com). With 200 properties open globally and another 63 in the pipeline, InterContinental® Hotels & Resorts is the world's largest luxury hotel brand. 

"As a Bellevue resident for more than 20 years, I am deeply committed to the future success of the community - and Avenue Bellevue is the biggest and most important project of my life. We are creating something that will set a new standard for hospitality and residential design in the region," said Andy Lakha, CEO and Principal of Fortress Development. "Growing up in Pakistan, my entire world view of luxury was shaped by the InterContinental Hotel in Karachi, which at the time was the country's only five-star hotel. I am delighted to be able to introduce this revered luxury brand to the Pacific Northwest for the first time." 

Avenue Bellevue's InterContinental Hotel will feature 251 guest rooms, full-service spa and fitness center, meeting space and other luxury amenities.

Sales & Marketing: Playing the Long Game

During an economic downturn, it is tempting to slash marketing budgets to make up for lost revenue. But smart hoteliers play the long game, knowing that companies who stay engaged with their customers will be the first to benefit from a rebound. Therefore, now is the time to renew and revamp sales and marketing strategies in order to be ready for what lies ahead. For example, this is a perfect time to refresh website content, social media and SEO.  The same for hotel blogs where content can be updated to give customers inspirational ideas as they begin to travel and meet again. Multimedia assets should also be revised with new photo/video shoots that provide accurate information about how setups, room configurations, and onsite offerings have changed to accommodate safer meetings and social distancing. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting in anticipation of a recovery in 2021.
