GF Management, a leading national hotel ownership and management company, announces that, through its affiliate (collectively, the "Company"), has acquired the Courtyard by Marriott Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre, marking the Company's fourth ownership venture in Orlando, Florida.

The acquisition of the Courtyard by Marriott Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre continues to align with GF Management's growth objectives and marks the fourth Marriott branded hotel owned by the Company. The Company now owns and/or manages 12 hotels and resorts within the Marriott portfolio, consisting of nearly 3,500 guest rooms and suites.

"We are confident the extensive renovation we have planned, along with the implementation of our proven management systems, will elevate this hotel to a leader in the market."

Renovations at the 308-room Courtyard by Marriott Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre are due to begin this fall. The guest room refresh will further enhance its already celebrated experience—upgrades include converting all Double/Double guest rooms to Queen/Queen guest rooms, as well as adding new tile and luxurious glass-enclosed showers in all guest bathrooms.

Focusing on revitalizing its curb appeal, the renovation will also include the reimagining of the exterior facade, new lighting highlighting its lush landscape, and outdoor pool improvements including the addition of a kids' splash pool.

Lobby, restaurant, and bar renovations will follow, offering an open and active lobby concept, where guests can come together to meet, connect, or relax. A bistro will be added which will feature coffee, teas, lattes, frozen blended beverages, and more, will provide guests an opportunity to get a quick bite before a busy day.

Mobile Technology: Meeting Tech Expectations

What once seemed futuristic is now the norm, owing to the escalating developments in mobile technology, and hotels must continue to innovate in order to meet guest expectations. In a recent study from Mower, 65 percent of guests said they would gladly pay more for a hotel that provides the mobile technology they deem essential. The same study shows that 44 percent of travelers are more likely to book a smart hotel, and nearly 7 in 10 want to use smart devices provided by the hotel. And how do guests wish to use all this technology? A majority expressed a desire for mobile check-in and check-out, and mobile payment options. They also want to be able to stream content from their phone to the TV; to make service requests of the hotel staff; to control in-room lighting, temperature and sound; to order food and beverages; and to request a wake-up call - all from their mobile device. Guests also expressed preferences for robust wi-fi and convenient device charging ports throughout the hotel. They also appreciate the use of hotel branded apps which allow a guest to book a room, access loyalty programs, receive discounts and rewards, and even use the app to choose the room, floor and view they prefer. Some hotel apps also allow a customer to track their charges throughout their stay, rather than waiting to receive a bill at the end. Finally, mobile tech lounges are popping up more frequently in some hotels. These lounges offer guests the opportunity to perform tasks like airline check-ins or access to local info guides, but they also provide a place where guests can comfortably get some work done outside their room. The January Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to meet their customers' expectations in the mobile technology space.
