USA, Atlanta, Georgia. December 11, 2018

Hunter Hotel Advisors - the nation's leading investment advisory firm focused exclusively on the hotel industry - announces that the Hyatt Place Chesapeake, VA, was purchased by SAK Developers, a private investment group, from an institutional seller.

Marshall Hotels & Resorts of Salisbury, MD will provide sales & marketing, operations and accounting services to the owner.

David Perrin, Vice President at Hunter Hotel Advisors said: "This hotel is an exceptional model for the Hyatt Place brand, and offers strong historic performance with future rate opportunity. I am pleased to have represented Hunter and our client as we navigated the financial aspects of this sale."

"This is the third of four Hyatt Place properties that Hunter will represent this cycle. The Hyatt Place franchise is highly-sought after, and each location we have represented has had rigorous offer activity and short sale time, similar to 2017 performance.

The 119-room property opened in 2008, was extensively renovated in 2017, and is distinguished by fresh design, leading-edge technology and convenient guest features.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
