Replay Destinations and YOTEL Plan Summer Groundbreaking of YOTELPAD Mammoth in California

USA, Mammoth, California. May 13, 2019

Replay Destinations, an integrated destination development company, announced a Summer 2019 groundbreaking for YOTELPAD Mammoth, the brand's third U.S. location following the successful launches of Park City and Miami. YOTELPAD Mammoth will offer the opportunity to stay and live within walking distance of the gondola and The Village at Mammoth, a four-season destination, and one of the country's top ski resorts with one of the longest ski seasons in North America.

"We have been developing this concept with YOTEL for a number of years. After our strong success in Park City and upon discovering an incredibly located site in Mammoth, we knew we had to develop the next YOTELPAD here," said Gary Raymond, Managing Director, Replay Resorts.

Replay Destinations' YOTELPAD Mammoth will be the first new development built in the village area at Mammoth Mountain in more than 10 years. Known for its ‘affordable luxury' approach along with smart, efficient design, YOTELPAD Mammoth will feature 177-units and will function much like a hotel with amenities such as fully-stocked gyms, living room-like lounges and year-round pool and dining spaces.

The property will offer 156 'PADs' with flexible and adaptable spaces, ranging from 410 to 629 square feet. In addition, the project will also tout the brand first 'DOMO' concept offering 21 townhomes at 1,503 square feet each. YOTELPAD Mammoth will accept overnight guests in the units. As with all YOTEL locations globally, YOTELPAD Mammoth will offer robust community amenities for all ages and attentive service utilizing the latest smart living technologies.

The Terrace will serve as a social hub with a bar, numerous fire pits, a year-round pool and hot tub, a dog park, a dedicated area for yoga, in addition to table tennis and bocce ball courts. The community fireplace lounge will also include the first-ever YOTELPAD bar. With fresh seasonal food and drinks, this all-day dining venue will connect the outdoor social spaces with the indoors through cleverly-designed layouts and areas for relaxing, co-working and informal gatherings. Little ones will be plenty occupied with endless activities in dedicated zones for kids and teens.

YOTELPAD's signature design concept centers around transformative spaces, including multi-purpose furniture with convertible configurations to maximize interior space along with built-in technology and dynamic lighting. These innovative layouts will be complemented by a modern minimalistic design and the newest technologies, including the YOTEL brand's signature adjustable SmartBeds™ and adjustable mood lighting, a smart TV, multi-power points and easy connectivity for PAD guests.

Beyond design efficiency and cost effectiveness, YOTELPAD is an industry leader in the use of smart technology. A cornerstone for all properties is functional technology, such as robot butlers making in-PAD deliveries to a robotic luggage concierge. YOTELPAD Mammoth will be no different, employing the latest technologies throughout the public spaces, PADs and DOMOs. Additional services available to owners will include an interactive app-based ski and car valet, as well as Amazon™ lockers.

Mammoth Mountain is owned by Alterra Mountain Company and is part of the Ikon pass, allowing owners access to 14 of the world's premier four-season resorts. It is one of California's foremost drive-to mountain resorts and the third most visited ski resort in the US with over 1.1 million skier visits each season, and more than 2 million visitors annually. Mammoth also boasts one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Ten minutes from town, Mammoth Yosemite Airport offers direct flights from Los Angeles year-round and several other non-stop seasonal routes including Burbank, Orange County, San Francisco and Denver.

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.
