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.

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.
