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.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
