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.

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.
