USA, Aptos, California. January 30, 2020

Pacifica Hotels, a family owned business with a proud legacy of owning and operating boutique hotels in coastal communities such as Half Moon Bay, Cambria, and Pismo Beach for over 40 years, is expanding further along the California Coast with the acquisition of the Best Western Seacliff Inn in Aptos, California.

Frank Sr. and Colleen Giuliani, TJ and Shirley Scott and Norman Bei were key partners in the initial development and operation of the Seacliff Inn in the 1980's. More recently, the property has been owned and managed by Frank E. Giuliani, Lori Giuliani; and Kathy Graff at The Bei Scott Company.

"It has been a wonderful experience being a part of such a special property and community that has been home to many local and loyal returning customers," said Frank E. Giuliani.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
