Pendry Hotels & Resorts, today announced its further expansion into the Mid-Atlantic with Pendry Washington D.C. - The Wharf. The 140,000-square-foot hospitality development located within Phase 2 of The Wharf, is set to begin construction this summer. This new addition to The Wharf will bring the Pendry Hotels & Resorts refined sense of modern-day luxury hospitality to the waterfront neighborhood in 2022.

Pendry Washington D.C. - The Wharf represents the expanding hospitality brand's first property in the nation's capital, featuring 131 guestrooms, including 34 suites; three food and beverage concepts including a chic cocktail lounge; destination pool deck with an indoor/outdoor restaurant; rooftop lounge and bar; Spa Pendry and fitness center, and more than 5,000-square-feet of meeting and event space, including a rooftop event space—with a modern approach to design that will pay tribute to the city's dynamic history.

"We are incredibly excited to partner with PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette to bring the Pendry brand to D.C.'s The Wharf, a destination that we believe is one of the most exciting and innovative mixed-used development communities in the country," said Alan J. Fuerstman, Founder, Chairman and CEO, Montage International. "With stunning architecture and exceptional culinary and entertainment offerings, we look forward to welcoming the community and visitors to this incredible destination."

Pendry Washington D.C. - The Wharf is designed by Design Agency and will draw inspiration from the iconic colonnades and limestone buildings for which the nation's capital is known, reinterpreting their architectural principles into a contemporary and sophisticated design. The hotel will express a tailored and timeless European-inspired sensibility.

"As we launch into building Phase 2 and completing The Wharf, we are thrilled to welcome the first Pendry Hotel in the District to the waterfront neighborhood," said Monty Hoffman, Founder and CEO of PN Hoffman. "With the addition of this boutique hospitality landmark, we look forward to having both the D.C. community and visitors experience all that this innovative brand has to offer. With a refreshing take on the traditional hotel, we believe this artfully designed destination will provide guests with unrivaled experiences while embracing the waterfront culture of The Wharf and eccentricities of The District— a complementary addition to this transformational D.C. waterfront neighborhood," Hoffman added.

"We are thrilled to welcome Pendry Hotels & Resorts to The Wharf's Phase 2," said Amer Hammour, Chairman of Madison Marquette. "Pendry's luxury hospitality brand — with its emphasis on customizing each hotel's design and experience to reflect the unique character of its location — will be a superb fit for The Wharf's expanded waterfront presence. Pendry's addition will complement The Wharf's extraordinary curation of retail, residential, office, entertainment and dining experiences."

This marks the sixth Pendry Hotels & Resorts property under development in the brand's portfolio and follows the openings of Pendry San Diego and Sagamore Pendry Baltimore in 2017.

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.
