Greenwood Hospitality Inks Management Deal With Inns of Monterey for Five Boutique Hotels in Coastal Monterey, California

USA, Denver, Colorado. December 04, 2019

Greenwood Hospitality Group, a full-service third party hotel management company, has assumed management of five hotels in Monterey, California: the Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa, the Spindrift Inn, the Wave Street Inn, the Victorian Inn, and the Monterey Bay Inn. All five properties are owned by boutique hotel collection Inns of Monterey.

"These five properties represent some of the most vibrant and expressive hotels in the Monterey hotel market, and we are honored to add them to our portfolio," said Bill Kohl, Principal at Greenwood Hospitality Group. "We are excited for the future of this fantastic destination, and we are looking forward to growing alongside Inns of Monterey."

Ted Balestreri, CEO of Cannery Row Company and the Inns of Monterey, states, "I've known Bill Kohl for years, and we have every expectation that Greenwood Hospitality will be an excellent partner for the Inns of Monterey, our luxury collection of boutique hotels. Our hotels celebrate the character and spirit of Monterey and offer authentic experiences you won't find anywhere else."

The historic Casa Munras Garden Hotel & Spa is a full-service property included in the Inns of Monterey's hotel portfolio. Originally known as La Granja (Spanish for ‘the farm') when it was built in 1824 by Spanish diplomat Don Estéban Munras, the property's historic significance has been maintained over the years, including a portion of the original structure complete with 32-inch thick adobe walls. Today the hotel offers modern Spanish cuisine at the Estéban Restaurant, where guests can find an array of shareable plates and classic selections to sip, savor, and share.

The Spindrift Inn was built by Chinese investor and restaurateur Maen Chang Wu in 1927 on the site of the former Ocean View Hotel. The 45-key hotel is located on Monterey's historic Cannery Roy, and sits on the shores of Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean. A continental breakfast delivered directly to the room is one of the hotel's hallmarks. The Spindrift Inn was recently recognized by Conde Nast Traveler's Readers Choice Awards, which listed the property in the top 25 hotels in the U.S./Northern California and it has also been recognized as the most romantic hotel in the country by TripAdvisor.

The Wave Street Inn is located near Monterey's Cannery Row and is within walking distance of the Old Fisherman's Wharf. The hotel's modern design is bolstered by an aesthetic rooted in nature, and each of the property's rooms and suite categories are named in honor of Cannery Row. The property also offers an "Under the Sea" package, bundling a single night's stay with two adult admission tickets to the nearby Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The Victorian Inn is a Monterey staple. The property has changed hands many times over the course of history, with its first recorded purchase from the Lang Family in 1908. Today the hotel offers oversize guestrooms and suites with fireplaces for couples, families, and groups, many with full-size living rooms and large sleeper sofas. All guests of the Victorian Inn will have access to a daily complimentary deluxe continental breakfast and evening wine and cheese reception featuring award-winning wines.

The Monterey Bay Inn provides spectacular views of Monterey's historic coastline, as well as access to the most popular attractions in the area. This property was built as part of Cannery Row's modern renaissance, and is located adjacent to the 1916 California Fisheries facility. The 49-key hotel offers private balconies, a rooftop hot tub, a daily continental breakfast delivered to the room and direct access to San Carlos Beach.

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.
