The Plasencia Group Arranges Sale of Doubletree Hotel Denver-Westminster

USA, Tampa, Florida. January 10, 2019

The Plasencia Group is pleased to announce it represented a joint venture between Hotel Capital Partners and ORIX Real Estate Americas in the sale of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Denver-Westminster. The 186-room hotel situated in the rapidly expanding Denver suburb of Westminster was acquired by an affiliate of Encore Hospitality, LLC, a Dallas, Texas-based commercial real estate investment company.

The Plasencia Group's Vice President, Joe Corcoran, and Senior Managing Director, Robert Wiemer, advised the seller in this transaction. The sale marks the second time The Plasencia Group has transacted this hotel.

"The purchaser is investing in this submarket at just the right time," commented Joe Corcoran. "The DoubleTree is well equipped to capitalize on the nearby Downtown Westminster development, augmenting its already diverse base of business. Additionally, the hotel's appealing, renovated condition is now a major factor in attracting business of all types. Our client was an excellent steward of the hotel, overseeing a substantial renovation and positioning it to compete as a top performer in its competitive set."

Hotel Capital Chief Executive Officer, Michael Collier, commented, "This sale represents a very clean execution on our original business plan from four years ago. At that time we acquired a cosmetically tired asset at a great basis in what we believed to be an up-and-coming location. Performing a top-to-bottom renovation of the hotel in 2016 allowed us to ramp up the business and resulting income and sell in our target price range to a highly qualified institutional buyer thanks to Joe Corcoran, Robert Weimer and the team at The Plasencia Group. Encore Hospitality was great to work with and we expect they will benefit from both the location and fully renovated product for a highly successful investment for many years to come."

The Plasencia Group has completed a total of 36 DoubleTree-branded hotel dispositions in 19 different states since 1999. Similarly, it has successfully transacted more than 100 Hilton-branded hotels and resorts nationally since 1999.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
