USA, Orange County, California. February 05, 2019

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.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
