USA, Dallas, Texas. August 20, 2019

Aimbridge Hospitality, the nation's largest independent hotel management company, is heating up its international portfolio with the addition of six Caribbean resorts.

The new Caribbean resorts now under Aimbridge Hospitality management include:

  • Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort & Emerald Casino, Curaçao: After undergoing a complete rebuild, the property is set to reopen in fall 2019.
  • Grand Hyatt Grand Cayman Hotel & Residence, Cayman Islands: The resort will break ground by year end 2019 and set to open Fall 2021.
  • Margaritaville Beach Resort at The Pointe, Nassau, Bahamas: This new build resort is set to open in June 2020.
  • Hyatt Regency Coco Beach, Puerto Rico: The beachside family-friendly resort reopened in August 2019.
  • Marriott Frenchman's Reef, St. Thomas: One of two St. Thomas properties in Aimbridge's portfolio, the resort is currently undergoing construction and set to open in Spring 2020.
  • Autograph Collection Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort, St. Thomas: Adjacent to Marriott Frenchman's Reef, this resort is currently undergoing construction and anticipates opening in Spring 2020.

Aimbridge-managed luxury resort Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Resort & Spa is also undergoing renovations and is set to open in Spring 2020.

"The acquisition of these resorts is a great expansion for our Caribbean portfolio," said Dave Johnson, Chairman and CEO at Aimbridge Hospitality. "The devastation from the 2017 hurricanes has produced a tremendous opportunity as newly renovated and revamped assets look to relaunch and reposition back into the marketplace."

With the acquisition of these properties, Aimbridge Hospitality now represents nine resorts on eight Caribbean islands with immediate plans to continue expanding. Aimbridge Hospitality is also planning to add an additional 10-12 Caribbean resorts in the pipeline for 2019 and 2020.

Aimbridge Hospitality is headquartered in Dallas with development offices in Puerto Rico and Chicago. For more information on Aimbridge Hospitality, please visit www.aimbridgehospitality.com.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
