Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG) Chosen as Operator of 116-Room DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, Colorado

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 31, 2019

Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, has announced it has taken over management of the 116-room DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, Colorado. The hotel marks the company's 20th hotel addition in 2018 resulting in a record growth year.

“With the exciting addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, HVMG's portfolio grew more than 50 percent in 2018,” said Robert Cole, president & CEO, HVMG. “With our depth and expertise operating upper upscale, destination properties and resorts, we are well equipped to quickly improve the market share and profitability of this property. We ended 2018 on a high note, which included assuming management of the brand new Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach and the opening of the new Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Augustine Beach Oceanfront Resort, and we see 2019 as having further opportunities to grow our portfolio and strengthen our operating results.”

The Vail hotel recently underwent a transformative renovation and conversion to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand. The completely reimaged and “like-new” hotel is located at 2211 N. Frontage Road in Vail, Colo., a short shuttle ride to Vail Mountain Resort, and proximate to Beaver Creek. With a “Mountain Modern” design, the hotel features a lodge-inspired lobby and bar with a ten-foot, double-sided glass fireplace framed by a dramatic LED-accented slate wall and plenty of comfortable/casual and family friendly seating to encourage guests to hangout après ski and after dinner. Decor features natural aesthetics, including wood walls throughout the lobby, bar and great room; front desk framed by a stunning, art-accented, charred wood, wall backdrop; modern, large format, white tile throughout the lobby, great room and corridors; and custom framed prints that provide a sense of place. Guest rooms were designed for skiing families, and finishes are true to the Modern Mountain design aesthetic, featuring wood walls accenting comfy, pleather headboards, “live edge” style wood desks and built-in, wood-trimmed “portals” housing refrigerators, in-room safes and coffee makers. Most regular guest rooms provide daybed sofas that can be utilized for additional sleeping capacity in both double queen and king rooms.

Guests are invited to dine at one of the hotel's three restaurants. Pivot62, housed in the hotel's beautiful lobby with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the mountainside, provides shareable plates and local craft beer. The Westside Cafe, a famous breakfast place among locals and tourists alike, serves casual American classics for three meals daily, and the Casa Mexico offers authentic, made-to-order Mexican food serving lunch and dinner. Guest also can order room service or pick up grab-n-go items from the Colorado Made Market.

“Vail, Colorado has an exceptional reputation as one of the premier locations for winter sports, routinely listed in the top 10 of SKI Magazine's Annual Resort Rankings,” Cole added. “Guests come to the area expecting the latest amenities and luxuries after spending a long day on the slopes. The recent conversion, coupled with our hardworking on-site and corporate support teams, ensures that the DoubleTree by Hilton Vail will be a source of many wonderful memories for leisure, group and business travelers alike.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
