MCR Acquires Hampton Inn by HIlton in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

USA, New York City, New York. January 09, 2020

MCR, the fifth-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, has acquired the 149-room Hampton Inn by Hilton Philadelphia/King of Prussia in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.

The newly renovated hotel is less than a mile from the East Coast's largest shopping center, the King of Prussia Mall. If the thought of braving the 3-million-square-foot mecca makes you want to run, run as fast as you can like a gingerbread man, don't fret! The smart cookies at the Hampton Inn have some sweet shopping strategies to share.

Fuel Up With Free Baked Goods

A hot breakfast — and plenty of coffee — awaits you at the Hampton Inn. As you dine, browse the mall's directory of 450 retailers using the hotel's complimentary fast Wi-Fi. Make a list — and check it twice!

Spend Some Dough — and Downtime

Shopping on a Saturday? That's a half-baked idea. Congestion peaks in the late afternoons on weekends. Instead, pick a Tuesday or Wednesday morning, then settle in for a long winter's nap — or a viewing of Lifetime's guilty pleasure The Magical Christmas Shoes — in your plush Hampton Inn bed.

Get Piece-of-Cake Exercise

Work off those confection calories! "King of Prussia Mall is a great place to get your steps in," says Kathy Smith, the mall's director of marketing. Strolling every mall aisle and corridor is equivalent to walking the entire width of Manhattan — twice. The icing on the gingerbread: The Hampton Inn has a 24-hour fitness center where you can prep your biceps for the shopping haul.

The Hampton Inn by Hilton Philadelphia/King of Prussia is located at 530 West Dekalb Pike and features:

· 149 pet-friendly guestrooms with mini-refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers

· Free hot breakfast — take it to go!

· Free fast Wi-Fi

· A 24-hour fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights

· A business center with printing, faxing, copying and audiovisual services

· More than 600 square feet of meeting and event space for approximately 40 people

· Complimentary parking

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.
