Amy Johnson Named General Manager of The Confidante Miami Beach

USA, Miami, Florida. June 26, 2019

Amy Johnson has been appointed general manager of The Confidante Miami Beach, effective immediately. The Confidante Miami Beach is part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, a portfolio of new and existing upper-upscale and luxury hotel properties that offer a truly differentiated stay, with personality, elegance and charm. The independent brand, which encompasses a wide range of unique properties, offers striking new adventures and unforgettable experiences.

A celebrated hospitality professional with more than 30 years of industry experience, Amy most recently served as General Manager of Hyatt Regency Calgary for the past three and a half years. Amy began her Hyatt career in 2000, after an impressive run at Fairmont Hotels, by opening Hyatt Regency Calgary as Director of Banquets with a quick move to Director of Events Sales & Planning. Following Hyatt Regency Calgary, she was promoted to Hyatt Regency O'Hare where she helped relaunch the hotel after its $175 million renovation.

Amy then transitioned to the Hyatt's corporate office to support the revenue, sales and events division as Director of Events for The Americas from 2007-2015, as part of three regional teams and was the Sales & Events lead for opening and transitioning more than 45 hotels. With her impressive experience and commitment to Hyatt's brand promises, Amy is poised to proactively drive hotel growth.

"I'm excited to join the quickly growing Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand," said Amy Johnson, newly appointed general manager of The Confidante. "I love how the hotel delivers an upbeat, relaxed and playful atmosphere and shares a glimpse into Miami's Golden Era, all with the sophistication and amenities of the modern day."

In her position, Amy oversees all aspects of property management, ensuring excellence in all operational and strategic initiatives, as well as leadership team development. She takes a deep pride and care for all the properties she oversees. For Amy, care means to be one's true authentic self, show empathy and have excellent listening skills, which is something she makes a point to do every day in her professional life.

Launched in 2016, The Confidante is a nostalgic and playful celebration of its retro-glam roots. The Confidante's vibe is nostalgic, welcoming, and unpretentious - which is akin to the meaning behind the name, The Confidante: a best friend, trusted insider. The mid-century modern hotel features 354 guestrooms, including 14 suites, with a 1950s-inspired design that reflects Miami Beach's hey-day.

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.
