Tapestry Collection by Hilton Welcomes The Cassara Carlsbad, a Mediterranean-Style hotel, to Its Expanding Portfolio

USA, San Diego, California. January 14, 2020

The Cassara Carlsbad, Tapestry Collection By Hilton, a 90-room fully redesigned, full-service hotel just minutes from LEGOLAND California, the famous Carlsbad Flower Fields, the Crossings Golf Course and Carlsbad Premium Outlets, is the latest addition to the Tapestry Collection by Hilton portfolio, one of Hilton's 17 market-leading brands.

The modern hotel features stunning and elegant colors the minute you walk into the lobby. The distinctive logo embodies the beautiful, colorful rows of the blossoming ranunculus flower, which is interpreted throughout the hotel with help from an iconic Mediterranean shape found in century-old Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian architecture and art forms. Intertwined in the lobby and room style are organic colors of natural sand and ocean hues that whisk you away to a beach-front, laid-back lifestyle that people dream about. The Cassara Carlsbad commemorates over 60 years of local North County flavor while still imbuing a modern Mediterranean spirit throughout the hotel.

The family-friendly Cassara Carlsbad is immediately adjacent to LEGOLAND California, which features a private pedestrian entrance, a family pool with water features and quiet pool options, and unique and locally-sourced sustainable food and cocktails served at the Costa Pacific Kitchen & Bar.

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.
