Paramount Lodging Advisors West Coast Sells Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield, California

USA, Bakersfield, California. January 28, 2019

Paramount Lodging Advisors (PLA) has successfully executed the transaction of the 198-room Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield California. The property is located at 5101 California Avenue, Bakersfield CA 93309. Senior Managing Director Scott Griemsmann and Senior Associate Subu Thiagarajan represented the seller in the sale.

This transaction presented the buyer a unique opportunity to acquire a core-branded Marriott hotel at a fraction of replacement cost in a market with significant growth prospects. The hotel is situated on 7.7 acres of prime commercial land in Central Bakersfield which also offers the buyer the potential for future redevelopment.

"The Bakersfield market has several factors influencing the market's growth including being number one and two in the nation in agriculture and oil production, respectively. In addition, the metro is ranked in the top 20 of the nation for the following: Millennial job growth, STEM job creation, upward mobility, engineering jobs, strongest recovering metro, fastest growing metro GDP and best performing metro area. This growth combined with the region's access to Northern and Southern California presented a compelling story for the investment."

This transaction contributes to PLA's activity in the Western U.S. and represents the seventh closing in recent months with one other deal that also closed in Q4 2018.

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.
