USA, Vancouver, Washington. October 08, 2019

Vesta Hospitality announced today that it has acquired Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa, an independent luxury boutique property on Astoria, Oregon's Columbia River Basin. The announcement was made by Vesta Hospitality Chairman & CEO Rick Takach.

Built on the site of the former Union Fish Cannery, the Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa projects 600 feet into the Columbia River, offering guests unparalleled views of a real working river, as well as views of Cape Disappointment Lighthouse and nearby Washington. Each room has a private balcony and is lavishly appointed with a fireplace, hardwood floors and luxurious amenities.

Opened in 2005, the late Robert "Jake" Jacob spent more than a decade in the planning, permitting and development of the Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa, respecting the features and history of the site, prominent in Astoria's commercial maritime history, while endowing the hotel and spa as a singular luxury destination.

"The Jacob family was an outstanding owner and operator of this exceptional property. We are extremely proud to be the new stewards of what is a truly irreplaceable property at a location that holds a special place in this region and community's history and imagination," said Vesta Hospitality Chairman and CEO Rick Takach, "Any property improvements that we make will preserve its existing character, while Vesta teams will work to enhance the total guest experience."

Consistently earning high marks from travel publications and hotel review sites, the property also features a full-service Day Spa with authentic Finnish sauna and fitness room; as well as a complimentary chauffeur driven classic automobile and complimentary day-use bicycles. Meeting space includes the Chinook Boardroom and the Union Fish Meeting Room, which can seat up to 70 people theatre style. Seated banquet facilities accommodate up to 60 people. Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa is also just a few steps from The Loft at the Red Building, which houses the highly acclaimed Bridgewater Bistro and also offers 4,000 square feet of event and meeting space. Nearby are the Columbia River Maritime Museum, the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, local theater, microbrew pubs, biking trails and many other attractions.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
