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.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
