USA, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. March 04, 2019

Concord Wilshire Capital, LLC ("Concord Wilshire") and TLG Investment Partners, LLC ("TLG") announced today that on February 25, 2019, they signed a purchase and sale agreement to acquire the former Holiday Inn site as well as the former Villa Caprice beach-front site located in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Florida. Concord Wilshire is a joint venture partner with TLG, which is headed by Leland C. Pillsbury and Christopher Nieberding.

The former Holiday Inn property located at 4116 El Mar Drive is situated in the heart of Downtown Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, bound by AIA to the West and El Mar Drive to the East. The 183-room hotel, with approximately 96,000 square feet under 5 stories, has been out of service for the past 7 years. The former beach-front Villa Caprice Hotel located at 4108-4110 El Mar Drive, which contains a 24-room, 2-story bungalow-style hotel, has been out of service for approximately 3 years.

"The subject sites will be redeveloped in collaboration with the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, introducing a state-of-the-art new hotel, branded with a major hotel flag, including popular restaurant concepts and engaging amenities for locals, so as to carry out the Town's vision of the beautification of El Mar Drive," said Nate Sirang, President of Concord Wilshire. 

Through an inspired redevelopment plan over the past several years, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is emerging as one of the most desirable world-class beach destinations within the South Florida market. "The visionary leadership of the Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea has sparked the revitalization of one of the most exquisite and charming beaches in the country. We are delighted to be a part of this great community," said Pillsbury. 

Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is located along Florida's "Gold Coast" in Broward County, Florida and is situated between the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. It is bordered on the south by the City of Fort Lauderdale and on the north by the City of Pompano Beach. Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is 30 miles north of Miami and 33 miles south of Palm Beach.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
