NewcrestImage Opens Hyatt Place in Amarillo, Texas

USA, Amarillo, Texas. January 13, 2020

NewcrestImage continues to add to its portfolio with the opening of a 91-room, 4-floor Hyatt Place in western Amarillo. This is the company's fourth hotel in Amarillo, with a total of 514 rooms in operation in the city.

The Hyatt Place is the second property of a three-hotel, 300-room "hotel campus" located on a five-acre site. The other hotels are a 90-room, 4-floor Tru by Hilton that opened in August of 2018 and a 90-room, 4-floor Aloft, a Marriott brand, that is scheduled to begin construction by mid-year of 2020.

The hotel complex is located in the heart of the city's medical district at the intersection of I-40 Frontage Road and South Soncy Road, which the Texas Department of Transportation describes as among Amarillo's busiest junctions.

"We offer travelers three distinctive hotel experiences and styles at a single, high-visibility, high-traffic location," explained Mehul Patel, Chairman and CEO of NewcrestImage.

The company owns and operates two other properties in Amarillo, both in the dynamic downtown area: an award-winning 107-room, 10-floor Courtyard by Marriott that opened in 2011 in the city's historic Fisk Building and a 226-room, 6-floor Embassy Suites that opened in December of 2017 directly across from the Amarillo Civic Center complex.

The Embassy Suites is in the process of adding a 118-seat upscale Las Brisas Southwest Steakhouse and will also add a Starbucks that is part of an agreement reached by NewcrestImage earlier this year to add coffee shops at four of its hotels.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
