GF Management Completes Renovation of the 353-Room DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport

USA, Orlando, Florida. December 17, 2018

DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport, located off State Highway 528 (Martin B. Andersen Beachline Expressway) and just minutes from Orlando International Airport, is thrilled to announce the completion of its extensive renovations. This exciting project aimed to outshine the competition by updating the hotel in its entirety, including all guest rooms, dining areas, lounge, fitness center, event spaces and lobby. Post-renovation, the property features a modern interior, with unique, stylish decor.

In June 2016 GF Management, a leading national hotel ownership and management company, announced that, through its affiliate, it had acquired the 353-room DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport. This acquisition is the third hotel in the Orlando market acquired by the Company in recent years, adding to the 2013 acquisitions of the Embassy Suites Lake Buena Vista Resort, and the Hilton Garden Inn Orlando/North Lake Mary. GF Management specializes in hotels, resorts, golf courses and other related hospitality assets and has pledged $8 million in renovations at the property.

“This extensive renovation, along with the implementation of our proven management system has elevated this hotel to the leader in its market,” said Vineet Nayyar, Chief Operating Officer for GF Management.

DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport is an ideal location for meeting and events, big or small. The modern glass enclosed Atrium, offering 4,000 square feet of flexible event space for groups, is the perfect pre-function space or reception area. Guests can utilize up to 15,000 square feet of event space which have upgraded electronic keys and digital signage. The meeting spaces also come equipped with new state of the art on-site AV equipment and an on-site AV Technician to help with any troubleshooting the guests may require.

“We are thrilled with the results of the vast renovations that took place here at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport,” said Craig Goldman, General Manager. “Both the staff and I are excited for our guests to see and experience the incredible upgrades that have been made to the property. We are proud of not only the incredible service that we provide to our guests, but the environment in which it's presented. We are confident guests will be just as delighted with the end-result as we are.”

GF Management is proud to have brought new life to this hotel. Whether guests are planning a family vacation, a romantic wedding or a business trip, countless amenities and fantastic service await them at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando Airport.

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.
