USA, Denver, Colorado. April 25, 2019

HALCYON, a hotel in Cherry Creek is proud to announce the appointment of Jason Delcamp as General Manager of the 154-room hotel that captures the spirit of the elevated Colorado lifestyle in one of Denver's most chic neighborhoods. Delcamp, an invaluable addition to the Halcyon team, brings a wealth of hospitality experience to his new role and will be responsible for the overall operations, performance and strategic direction while leading Halcyon into a new chapter with hotel operator Makeready.

With Delcamp's expert capabilities at the helm, the hotel team is well positioned to continue to offer a luxury hospitality experience in Cherry Creek that delivers the utmost level of genuine service.

"I am thrilled to be granted the opportunity to be the hotel's General Manager. Halcyon was the first luxury boutique hotel in Cherry Creek, and I feel especially connected to it, having worked here since before its opening," says Delcamp. "I will be working hard to achieve even higher levels of personal service, delivering our guests the kind of hotel experience that only Halcyon can offer to truly take care of and connect with each guest in a meaningful way."

Delcamp is no stranger to the core values and unique DNA of Halcyon, as prior to his appointment to General Manager Delcamp served as Halcyon's Director of Operations since 2016. His extensive career in hospitality encompasses additional management roles at The Westin Westminster and Kachina Southwestern Grill as well as the position of Food & Beverage Manager at Thorncreek Golf Club.

Sales & Marketing: Selling Experiences

There are innumerable strategies that Hotel Sales and Marketing Directors employ to find, engage and entice guests to their property, and those strategies are constantly evolving. A breakthrough technology, pioneering platform, or even a simple algorithm update can cause new trends to emerge and upend the best laid plans. Sales and marketing departments must remain agile so they can adapt to the ever changing digital landscape. As an example, the popularity of virtual reality is on the rise, as 360 interactive technologies become more mainstream. Chatbots and artificial intelligence are also poised to become the next big things, as they take guest personalization to a whole new level. But one sales and marketing trend that is currently resulting in major benefits for hotels is experiential marketing - the effort to deliver an experience to potential guests. Mainly this is accomplished through the creative use of video and images, and by utilizing what has become known as User Generated Content. By sharing actual personal content (videos and pictures) from satisfied guests who have experienced the delights of a property, prospective guests can more easily imagine themselves having the same experience. Similarly, Hotel Generated Content is equally important. Hotels are more than beds and effective video presentations can tell a compelling story - a story about what makes the hotel appealing and unique. A video walk-through of rooms is essential, as are video tours in different areas of a hotel. The goal is to highlight what makes the property exceptional, but also to show real people having real fun - an experience that prospective guests can have too. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
