Paramount Lodging Advisors Sells Ocean Front Gold Beach Inn, Ireland’s Rustic Lodges & RV Park and Ireland’s Commercial Income Property in OR

USA, Chicago, Illinois. February 05, 2019

Paramount Lodging Advisors (PLA) has successfully executed the transaction of the Ocean Front Gold Beach Inn, Ireland's Rustic Lodges & RV Park and Ireland's Commercial Income property in Gold Beach, OR. 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 two independent hotels, an RV Park, and commercial rental units on several acres between the Pacific Ocean and coastal Highway 101. Upon completion of a property improvement plan (PIP), upgrading technology, and implementation of professional management the buyer should be ideally positioned to further penetrate the market and expand its presence along the Oregon coast. 

“The Southern Oregon coast continues to experience growth due to an expanding Oregon population and escalating costs in coastal California. Retirees and leisure travelers from neighboring states are seeking similar characteristics to coastal California communities and the Southern Oregon coast offers this at a fraction of the cost. In addition, southern Oregon populations continue to expand adding further demand for accommodations along the coast”

This transaction contributes to PLA's activity in the Western U.S. and represents the sixth closing in recent months with two additional deals that also closed in Q4 2018.

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
