Atrium Hospitality Adds Three Branded, Full-Service Hotels to Its Management Portfolio

USA, Alpharetta, Georgia. November 27, 2019

Atrium Hospitality has assumed the management of three U.S. hotels from Winegardner & Hammons Hotel Group, an affiliate of the Pyramid Hotel Group. Comprising a combined 612 keys, the properties, located in Kentucky and Ohio, represent the well-known brands of Marriott, Embassy Suites by Hilton, and Holiday Inn. Since 2014, Atrium Hospitality has been one of the fastest-growing hotel management companies in the United States and is currently ranked as the sixth-largest management company (ranked by gross annual revenue end of 2018) by Hotel Business® (April 21, 2019 issue).

Atrium's management acquisition of the three properties continues the company's rapid expansion and increases its portfolio of assets under management to 84 hotels and 20,897 guest rooms/suites in 28 states. The company controls more than 3 million square feet of flexible event space and adds almost 30,000 square feet of meeting space associated with the management opportunities. The transition is effective immediately and is anticipated to be seamless to the thousands of guests that frequent the three full-service hotels.

"We are focused on expanding the Atrium Hospitality management portfolio with the right strategic opportunities," said Atrium Hospitality President Daniel Abernethy. "We welcome our newest associates to the Atrium family with the addition of three branded hotels in Ohio and Kentucky, which are ideally situated near a mix of demand generators of business, education, entertainment and retail."

Abernethy continued, "At the heart of our ongoing expansion and operating success is growing our people. We are investing in shaping the hospitality industry's talent of today and tomorrow as we add more hotels and career advancement opportunities for our nearly 10,000 associates. We are encouraging a culture of perseverance, respect, service and teamwork."

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
