Sam Moon Group announces the commencement of construction for a Hyatt House extended stay hotel at the Metropark Square mixed-use development in Shenandoah, Texas. The 5-story, 148-room hotel is slated to open in November 2020.

The hotel developer is Sam Moon Group; contractor is VCC and architect is Type Six. The senior lender for the project is Veritex Community Bank and Bedrock Group raised EB-5 Funds for the construction of the Hyatt House Metropark Shenandoah/The Woodlands.

"We are excited for the closing of financing and to begin construction with our partners VCC on Hyatt House Metropark Shenandoah/The Woodlands," said Shane Williams, vice president of construction, Sam Moon Group. "Hyatt House is one of the best extended stay upscale brands and we cannot wait for future guests to experience true luxury in Shenandoah and The Woodlands area."

Joining a slate of highly anticipated restaurant, retail, and entertainment offerings, Hyatt House Metropark Shenandoah/The Woodlands will feature residentially inspired studios, one- and two-

The extended stay hotel will boast amenities and services including indoor and outdoor social spaces, an H BAR with craft cocktails and freshly prepared meals, a lounge resembling living spaces of today's modern home and several multi-purpose areas.

"Sam Moon Group was very excited to team up with Veritex Community Bank in the early stages of this project," said Williams. "We developed a great relationship with Jason Worley, senior vice president of Veritex. We saw early in the loan origination that Worley and Veritex would be great partners to work with and we look forward to working with them again on future projects."

The hotel will be part of Metropark Square, an upscale development north of Houston in Shenandoah and The Woodlands trade area.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
