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.

Guest Service: First Impressions Matter

Hotels spend large amounts of money on marketing their operation and brand, but sometimes they fail to remember that guest service is the lifeblood of their business. It is outstanding guest service that allows a hotel to create an amazing and lasting impression, one that will remain with guests far beyond the duration of their stay. In pre-internet days, first impressions were formed the moment a guest walked through a hotel's front door. These days, first impressions are created long before a guest arrives at a hotel property. They begin when a customer visits a hotel's website or social media pages for the first time. When a guest connects with a property online, they immediately form an opinion of the hotel. First impressions matter and because of that, a hotel website should be mobile-friendly with blistering fast speed; it should be graphically appealing; and it should provide visual representation of the kind of experience a guest can expect. It is also vital to engage the customer; to actively solicit and respond to guest feedback. When a hotel personally engages with someone, it is demonstrating to other customers that guest opinions matter, and that management is willing to go the extra mile to provide superior guest service. Similarly, when a hotel sends out personalized emails with satisfaction surveys attached, it demonstrates that management values guest feedback, so that service can be improved at every level. Additionally, social media messages can be sent out prior to a guest's arrival to learn more about them, so their visit can be personalized. It's the small touches and details that are most remembered and appreciated. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate excellent guest service in their operations.
