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.

Social Media: Getting Personal

There Social media platforms have revolutionized the hotel industry. Popular sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and Tumblr now account for 2.3 billion active users, and this phenomenon has forever transformed how businesses interact with consumers. Given that social media allows for two-way communication between businesses and consumers, the emphasis of any marketing strategy must be to positively and personally engage the customer, and there are innumerable ways to accomplish that goal. One popular strategy is to encourage hotel guests to create their own personal content - typically videos and photos -which can be shared via their personal social media networks, reaching a sizeable audience. In addition, geo-locational tags and brand hashtags can be embedded in such posts which allow them to be found via metadata searches, substantially enlarging their scope. Influencer marketing is another prevalent social media strategy. Some hotels are paying popular social media stars and bloggers to endorse their brand on social media platforms. These kinds of endorsements generally elicit a strong response because the influencers are perceived as being trustworthy by their followers, and because an influencer's followers are likely to share similar psychographic and demographic traits. Travel review sites have also become vitally important in reputation management. Travelers consistently use social media to express pleasure or frustration about their guest experiences, so it is essential that every review be attended to personally. Assuming the responsibility to address and correct customer service concerns quickly is a way to mitigate complaints and to build brand loyalty. Plus, whether reviews are favorable or unfavorable, they are a vital source of information to managers about a hotel's operational performance.  The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to effectively incorporate social media strategies into their businesses.
