The Tuxon Set to Open in Summer 2020 Following Comprehensive Renovation

USA, Tucson, Arizona. October 23, 2019

At the convergence of modern hospitality and southwestern authenticity, where adventure seeking meets the social scene and business travelers mesh seamlessly with cultured vacationers, lies The Tuxon, an independent boutique hotel in the birthplace of Tucson. Scheduled to open in Winter 2019 with additional amenities coming online Summer 2020, The Tuxon is the ultimate reflection of its surroundings, a unique blend of environments that perfectly balances the city's dynamic cultural scene with its storied desert roots.

Located alongside I-10 in historic West Downtown, The Tuxon is a design-focused destination offering the conveniences, comforts and connectivity to service the seasoned vacationer and curious visitor alike. Conceived by entrepreneurs Vishal Patel and Sunny Patel, the hotel has undergone a thoughtful and comprehensive renovation to forge the classic with the modern, boasting 112 distinctive guestrooms featuring uncompromising attention to detail and amenities that include walk-in rain showers, 1GB fiber Internet, 50″ high definition televisions with casting capabilities and crafted minibars. The hotel also features a variety of curated art and interior design elements woven throughout the property that thoughtfully engrain local southwestern charm into the guest experience.

By day, the hotel is a gathering place for those drawn to Sentinel Peak and Tucson's well-traveled "Loop" of hiking and bicycle trails. After sunset, the reimagined pool serves as an alluring getaway for cocktails and conversations, and the ideal starting point for a night on the town.

"It truly is a center of gravity, pulling everything from the outside in," explains co-creator and Tucson native Vishal Patel. "We loved the layout of the property, because it allows for the pool, lounge areas, and amenities to be at the heart of the action."

The centerpiece of The Tuxon experience is the in-development welcome building. On track to open Summer 2020, the building will greet guests with a check-in area, café, market, social areas and an indoor and outdoor bar bathed in natural light and featuring a bevy of locally sourced offerings. Additionally, the co-creators have conceived a community-focused programming schedule featuring live music, local art, movie screenings, tastings and cooking workshops.

"Through design, service and our programming, we are delivering a truly authentic experience that celebrates the spirit of Tucson," says Sunny Patel. "The Tuxon stays true to its surroundings by paying tribute to the retro vibe and road trip feel of the past while building upon Tucson's modern legacy."

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.
