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.

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.
