Banyan Investment Group Acquires and Will Operate 110-Room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas

USA, Houston, Texas. July 17, 2019

Banyan Investment Group, an Inc. 5000 recognized hotel investment and management company that acquires and manages select-service hotels in the United States, today announced that it has acquired and will operate the 110-room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas.

"We continue to seek institutional quality assets, such as the Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland, in major markets with numerous demand generators," said Andy Chopra, founding principal and chief investment officer, Banyan Investment Group. "The hotel benefits from its location within Pearland Town Center, a popular mixed-used development with 937,000 square feet of open space location within the South Houston marketplace that includes 140 specialty stores, 234-unit apartment complex building and more than 50,000 square feet of office space. The hotel requires minimal capital expenditures, and we are confident the property will achieve its economic objectives with immediate cash flow."

Situated in the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway Street in the "Energy Capital of the World," the five-story hotel is just 15 minutes from NRG Stadium (home of the NFL's Houston Texans) and within 20 minutes of the Texas Medical Center, downtown Houston and William P. Hobby International Airport. All guest rooms, which underwent a recent renovation in 2016, contain luxurious linens, pillow-top mattresses, complimentary high-speed Internet access, refrigerator work desk, 32-inch HDTV and microwave. The hotel also provides meeting space for up to 60 people, business center, 24/7 fitness center and outdoor pool. Guests are invited to dine at The Bistro, serving breakfast and dinner daily, or to pick up quick bites and coffee at the hotel Starbucks.

"Home to some of America's largest corporations, including Philips 66 and Sysco, Houston is well on its way to becoming the third largest city in the United States," Chopra added. "We appreciate the economic diversity provided by South Houston's submarkets, and Pearland particularly stood out due to its standing as the fastest growing suburb in one of the fastest growing MSAs in the country."

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.
