USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 08, 2019

Hotel Equities (HE) just announced the official opening of the new Hampton Inn & Suites Snellville Atlanta NE. HE will manage the 100-room hotel owned by Park Place Hotel, LLC and located at 1905 Pharrs Road. Saun Matthews serves as the hotel's general manager and Erin Ritchie leads the sales team as director of sales.

“We are thrilled to add this new Hampton Inn & Suites hotel to our portfolio,” said Chuck Powell­, senior vice president of operations for HE. “The ownership group went above and beyond during the project's development to ensure the final product exceeds guest's expectations. Using only top-of-the-line materials designed for quality, safety and durability, the result is a hotel the city of Snellville can be proud of.”

The Hampton Inn & Suites Snellville Atlanta NE offers a dynamic 1,600 square feet of meeting space with state of the art audio visual options to make meetings and events memorable. The hotel also offers modern and stylish guest rooms furnished with a fresh Hampton bed® and ergonomically designed work area. Suites are available for guests that need extra space and include a sofa bed. Additional amenities include a state of the art fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, fire pit, 24-hour business center and guest laundry. 

“I am proud to be a part of this new hotel's opening team,” said Saun Matthews, the hotel's general manager. “I look forward to building relationships with our local partners and to offering guests a one-of-a-kind experience while visiting our growing city.”

Saun is a resident of Snellville and a former graduate of Hotel Equities' Management Development Program (MDP). She joined HE as the sales coordinator for a new-build Hilton- hotel in Atlanta and was promoted to front office manager upon graduating from MDP, Hotel Equities' industry leading training program for rising talent. Saun's contributions yielded the award-winning hotel consistent top rankings on TripAdvisor, with the Hilton brand and with shareholder returns.

“Saun's hard work and dedication in her previous role made her stand out among the competition,” said Ronnie DeThomas, co-owner of the hotel. “We are proud to have her lead the team.”

The owners are excited to open the doors of the new hotel, but they are also anxious to make an even larger contribution through civic opportunities. “This is a long-term investment [and just one of several local developments from the duo],” said Richard Swope, co-owner. “Our goal is to build relationships with the local hospitals, police departments, fire stations and other businesses. We want the hotel to be the living room of the community here in Snellville.”

The hotel is located near 2 million square feet of retail space and two Medical Centers, Eastside Medical Center and Lawrenceville Medical Center. The hotel's location will provide guests visiting the city of Snellville with convenient accommodations during their stay.

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program.  Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and  teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
