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.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
