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.

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.
