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.

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.
