Pacifica Hotels, the largest owner and operator of independent hotels on the Pacific Coast is expanding further into the global brand select service category with the acquisition of the Residence Inn by Marriott Anaheim Hills Yorba Linda, a joint venture with Santa Barbara Capital. This latest acquisition joins Pacifica's other branded assets including Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha Kona Beach Hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Kauai Wailua Bay, Hilton Garden Inn at Port St. Lucie and Springhill Suites by Marriott Paso Robles Atascadero.

The property is situated along the southern edge of California Highway 91, approximately 20 miles from John Wayne International Airport, which welcomes over 10 million travelers annually. The hotel's location serves as a gateway between the Anaheim metro area to the west and the Inland Empire to the east. In the epicenter of Orange County's entertainment venues, Residence Inn by Marriott Anaheim Hills Yorba Linda offers ideal accommodations for guests enjoying iconic attractions and institutions, including Disneyland, Big League Dreams Sports Park, Knott's Berry Farm, and the Anaheim Convention Center.

Residence Inn by Marriott Anaheim Hills Yorba Linda features 128 rooms and recently underwent a $3.5 million renovation, which consisted of a redesign of the lobby, breakfast room and event spaces. The hotel also now offers new spaces and amenities, including hot breakfast served daily, evening socials, an outdoor terrace with a firepit and a built-in grill, sport court, swimming pool, fitness center, and business center.

“As Marriott is one of the world's most recognizable hotel brands, Residence Inn by Marriott Anaheim Hills Yorba Linda will share not only the name but the impeccable hospitality standards that Marriott holds,” said Matt Kou, Vice President of Investments & Acquisitions. “We are thrilled that this new property is in close proximity to Pacifica Hotels' headquarters in Aliso Viejo and are ready to bring Pacifica's and Marriott's brands together to create a superlative guest experience.”

Chris Marquis, Executive Vice President of Investments & Acquisitions adds, “Due to where we are in the current market cycle, we believe this asset fits well within our strategic plan to add select service hotels with a strong location and brand affiliation to the Pacifica portfolio.”

With the addition of Residence Inn by Marriott Anaheim Hills Yorba Linda, Pacifica Hotels now owns or manages 40 properties in valuable California urban and coastal locations. Having closed 2018 with a total revenue of $220 million, Pacifica is proving to be a key player in the West Coast hospitality industry with a growing collection of unique, boutique and experiential brands.

Hotel Spa: Pursuing Distinction

The Wellness Movement continues to evolve and hotel spas continue to innovate in order to keep pace. Fueled by intense competition within the industry, hotel spas are seeking creative ways to differentiate themselves in the market. An increasing number of customers are searching for very specific, niche treatments that address their particular health concerns and, as a result, some leading spas have achieved distinction by offering only one specialized treatment. Meditation and mindfulness practices are becoming increasingly mainstream as are alternative treatments and therapies, such as Ayurvedic therapies, Reiki, energy work and salt therapy. Some spas specialize in stress management and offer lifestyle coaching sessions as part of their program.  Other spas are fully embracing new technologies as a way to differentiate themselves, such as providing wearable devices that track health and fitness biomarkers, or robots programmed with artificial intelligence to control spa environments, or virtual reality add-ons that transport guests to relaxing places around the world. Some spas have chosen to specialize in medical procedures such as liposuction, laser skin therapy, phototherapy facials, Botox and facial fillers, acupuncture and permanent hair removal, in addition to cosmetic body shaping procedures and  teeth whitening treatments. Similarly, other spas are offering comprehensive health check-ups and counseling services for those who are interested in disease prevention treatments. Finally, as hotel spas continue to become more diverse, accessible and specialized, there is a growing demand for health professionals with a specific area of expertise. There is a proliferation of top class, quality wellness practitioners who make a name for themselves by offering their services around the globe, including athletes, chefs, doctors, physical trainers and weight loss specialists. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
