McNeill Hotel Investors Acquires Hilton Garden Inn Beaverton

USA , Germantown , Tennessee. December 11, 2018

McNeill Hotel Investors ("McNeill") announced today the acquisition of the 4-story, 150-room Hilton Garden Inn Beaverton, adding to the company's growing portfolio. The announcement was made by Phillip McNeill, Jr., the company's Chief Executive Officer.

The Hilton Garden Inn Beaverton is ideally located adjacent to Highway 26 / Sunset Corridor, which is directly within the "Silicon Forest" of Beaverton, Oregon.

The select-service hotel has four meeting rooms totaling 2,070 square feet of space; a fitness center and indoor pool; Charley's on Sunset, serving breakfast and dinner; and the Pavilion Pantry Market.

The city of Beaverton is within Washington County, just seven miles west of downtown Portland in the Tualatin River Valley. It is Oregon's sixth largest city, home to more than 95,000 residents. The city has been ranked in Money Magazine's Best Places to Live, as it continues to draw corporate demand from both inside and outside the state.

Additionally, construction is underway for a 92,000 square foot Event Center to be located at the Washington County Fair Complex, which is within six miles of the hotel.

"We are proud to add a second Hilton Garden Inn to our growing hotel portfolio and to operate in a new state for us," McNeill said. "We have great experience overall with Hilton as a valued brand partner and look forward to working with them on this property."

"This recently renovated hotel has seen more than $3.4 million in capital upgrades, and we will continue to improve both the rooms and public space," said Mark Ricketts, the company's President and Chief Operating Officer, adding that "The excellent demand drivers for this property include Beaverton's tech industry and industrial space within the Sunset Corridor, and Intel has nearly 20,000 employees nearby in Hillsboro."

The acquisition by McNeill Hotel Investors was facilitated by capital recently secured by McNeill through New York-based Almanac Realty Investors LLC.

McNeill Hotel Investors and McNeill Hotel Company now own and manage 21 select service hotels across the Southeast, the Midwest and Western States, with several additional properties in the acquisition and development pipeline.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
