Maverick Hotels & Restaurants Adds Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center to Portfolio

USA, Chicago, Illinois. December 04, 2019

Maverick Hotels & Restaurants, a full-service third-party hotel operator, developer and consultant, announced today the addition of the Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center to its portfolio. Robert Habeeb, Founder and CEO of Maverick, made the announcement.

Located just west of downtown Chicago in the upscale area of Oak Brook, IL and nestled in a serene, 150-acre estate, this premier resort and conference center is the latest and highest profile property to join Maverick's growing collection of properties operated for select owner groups.

"We are thrilled to be entrusted with this exceptional, recently rebuilt property, which features world-class amenities and cachet. Our operation of this property will draw on our rich experience with the Chicago hotel and conference marketplace, as well as with one-of-a-kind resort and event properties," Habeeb said.

"Working closely with ownership, we will explore the many ways we can enhance the already outstanding individual guest and group experience, including through our understanding of today's consumer and innovative food and beverage operations," added Maverick President and COO Robin Kirk.

The Hilton Chicago / Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center's expansive lobby overlooks a breathtaking view of 150 lush acres and the award-winning Willow Crest Golf Club, which is also a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The transformed guestrooms are the crowning achievement of the resort's comprehensive 3-year rebuild. Guestroom enhancements include new soft goods, as well as a new color scheme for the carpeting, furniture and window treatments. Ceramic tile in the entryways and bathroom, converted walk-in showers with stone surround in all suites, and custom wood barn bathroom doors add the final touches to the new design.

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.
