CoralTree Hospitality Group to Manage The Eddy Hotel in Golden, Colorado

USA, Denver, Colorado. June 25, 2019

Tom Luersen, president of CoralTree Hospitality Group, today announced that the company has been selected by Confluence Companies to manage The Eddy Hotel in Golden, Colo. Construction will begin shortly on the 49-room boutique hotel, which is expected to open summer 2021.

"This is an exciting new project for CoralTree," said Luersen. "Golden is an incredibly vibrant community - it's truly the gateway to the Rockies. With the whitewater playpark downtown, an emerging food scene and a welcoming spirit, it's the perfect place for a hotel like The Eddy. We are thrilled that Confluence selected us to help see the vision of The Eddy come to life."

The four-story hotel is located on the site of the old Golden Brick Works that dates back to the 1860s. The Eddy will capture the look and feel of the original brick works exteriors that the blend both a historic and industrial feel to provide a resort-like atmosphere. The interiors will be a mix of contemporary and vintage to create an updated yet very authentic local aesthetic. Conveniently located in Golden, the property will provide panoramic views of the Rockies.

The property also will offer flexible, customized meeting and event space for intimate gatherings and relaxed meetings. A locally sourced grab and go food service will be available in the lobby, which is designed to be an energetic gathering place. The Eddy will offer a bar that opens on to an outdoor patio. The property will include a fitness center as well as a rooftop garden and hot tub with views of the surrounding mountains. Accommodations will feature customized pantries on each floor and a variety of room styles so that each stay is unique and each room its own experience. This includes several rooms that feature bunk beds making it a convenient stay for families and friends traveling in groups.

The name, The Eddy Hotel, pays homage to the outdoor lifestyle that Golden is known for. Clear Creek runs through the heart of Golden and the whitewater playpark has become a draw for outdoor enthusiasts around the world. Eddies are a feature of rivers where the water is either calm or moving in the opposite direction to the flow of the river. Eddies provide a refuge for river enthusiasts, such as kayakers and whitewater rafters, to rest and scout the river below. The eddy is an apt metaphor for the City of Golden, which serves as a respite from the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Denver, while serving as a comfortable base for residents and visitors alike to plan their next adventure.

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.
