Rockbridge Acquires Halcyon, An Independent Luxury Hotel in Cherry Creek, Colorado

Halcyon is Rockbridge's Most Recent Lifestyle Property

USA, Columbus, Ohio. March 13, 2019

Rockbridge announces the acquisition of Halcyon, located in Cherry Creek, Denver's affluent submarket and high-end shopping district. The 154-room luxury hotel is Rockbridge's most recent lifestyle property. Makeready, who specializes in independent hotels and restaurants, will manage the hotel, restaurants and bars.

Halcyon's independent personality is deeply connected to the local community in Cherry Creek. Prior ownership built a strong brand in Halcyon that appeals to the discerning traveler. Guests agree, consistently rating Halcyon as one of the top hotels in all of Denver. Rockbridge is pleased to acquire the property and will continue to embrace the local community as we make enhancements to the property and hotel operations.

"I've been impressed with Halcyon for some time, and when the opportunity arose to acquire it, we moved quickly," said Jim Merkel, Rockbridge CEO. "We believe in Halcyon, and its strength as an independent brand. We look forward to re-capitalizing and enhancing the property. We are thrilled that a local investor group led by Matt Joblon has retained a minority interest in the hotel - keeping strong ties to the local community."

Rockbridge will capture Halcyon's existing high-quality but approachable luxury when it re-concepts Departure restaurant, the hotel entrance, and lobby experience. The hotel features Quality Italian, a modern take on an Italian-American Steak House; an activated, rooftop pool and lounge; and B&GC, a vintage speakeasy.

Signature, on-site amenities that have become synonymous with Halcyon's hospitality will remain, including the "Gear Garage," offering guests complimentary access to adventure gear such as longboards, cruisers, Piaggio Scooters, and GoPros to capture the action. Guests will continue to be greeted and tended to at the "Kitchen Counter" - a lobby gathering place where the vibe is comfortable and at ease as they enjoy fresh morning pastries, barista-poured beverages, and happy-hour libations - all while checking in or inquiring about the local scene.

"Since opening in 2016, Halcyon has set a new standard for luxury, independent hotels not only in Cherry Creek, but in Denver," said Matt Joblon, CEO of BMC Investments. "We believe Rockbridge and Makeready are the perfect partners to continue bringing the Halcyon vision to its fruition, ensuring the hotel maintains its position as one of the top hotels in Denver, and is a consistently great asset for the Cherry Creek Community."

All 154-rooms feature thoughtful design details that blur the lines between a luxury escape and a gracious home. Guests will enjoy unique amenities to enhance their experience like turntables in each room to play vinyl favorites and Vivreau beverage stations on each floor with chilled, sparkling and instant hot water on tap.

The hotel has expansive art programming, sharing the works of local Colorado artisans throughout its spaces. In addition, the Halcyon offers Cherry Creeks' premier, meeting space destination with 6,500 square feet of versatile, modern meeting and event space. Highlighting the space are floor to ceiling windows in the main ballroom.

The Halcyon is located at 245 Columbine Street, in Cheery Creek (Denver) Colorado. To make reservations, call 844.442.5296 or visit: https://www.halcyonhotelcherrycreek.com.

Social Media: Social Listening Tools

The reach and influence of social media is staggering. Nearly 3 billion people use social media daily, posting a range of messages, selfies, images, and everything in-between. According to HubSpot, almost 4 million posts are uploaded to the major social networks every single minute! That's an astounding amount of content and it is crucial for hotels to skillfully use social media in order to effectively compete. From establishing a suitable brand identity and voice to creating content across all the major networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), the goal is to actively engage consumers and to eventually convert them to customers. Some hotels are initiating online contests as a way to attract new customers, while others are rewarding customers with discounts who subscribe to the their email lists or follow their social media pages. Another recent strategy is to employ social media listening tools that track what people are posting online about their businesses. These tools allow hotels to monitor - or listen to - what's being said about a brand across the entire social web, and this can prove to be very valuable, unfiltered information. Social listening permits hotels to be aware of people's opinions about their business, industry or competitors, and some of these tools even listen beyond social media platforms. They also monitor publicly available information on blogs, forums, news outlets and websites. Some listening tools are more focused on gathering and analyzing data, while others offer more engagement-oriented features, which allow hotels to interact with people right from the platform. Often the information that is gleaned from these listening tools ends up being the most authentic, unbiased insights a business can get. The February Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to successfully integrate social media strategies into their operations.
