Tolles Development Company to Bring Hyatt Place Hotel to South Reno

USA, Reno, Nevada. March 31, 2020

Tolles Development Company announced plans for the development of a Hyatt Place hotel at The Summit in South Reno.

"Alongside our partners, Tolles Development saw a need for an elevated hospitality experience for today's forward-thinking travelers making a trip to Reno-Tahoe," said Par Tolles, CEO of Tolles Development Company. "As Reno's travel needs are diversifying and expanding, we are providing a state-of-the-art product that can meet both the business and leisure traveler at the top shopping and entertainment destination in the city".

In association with Pelzer Hospitality, developers plan to break ground on the site in spring of this year. Steve Pelzer, CEO of Pelzer Hospitality, has a long history with Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

"I've worked with the Hyatt brand for over 30 years, most notably as the General Manager of Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe in Incline Village as well as Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego," Pelzer said. "The Summit is the perfect location for a Hyatt Place hotel, and I look forward to being a part of its development from the ground up."

Other development partners include Bayer Properties, Azul Hospitality, Reno Engineering and DLW Architects.

The 132-room Hyatt Place hotel will be located between the Jared Galleria of Jewelry store and Century Summit Sierra movie theater. Event space and meeting rooms will be at the core of the hotel. Guests will have access to business resources designed to accommodate and ease their travels.

After work hours, guests can take advantage of the full collection of shopping and other amenities offered at The Summit including Dillard's, Lululemon, White House Black Market, Pendleton, Apple, Century Theatre with luxury seating, or one of The Summit's 12 restaurants ranging from upscale to fast-casual.

Uniquely positioned at the base of Mount Rose, the Hyatt Place hotel at The Summit will be Reno's closest hotel to Lake Tahoe, as well as the southern-most hotel in Reno with the quickest access to Nevada's capital, Carson City. The property will be located 15 minutes from Virginia City, Carson City, and the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, 20 minutes away from premium skiing at Mount Rose, and 40 minutes from Tahoe's shore.

Given the hotel's accessibility to Lake Tahoe and the outdoor amenities provided in the region, the hotel will include a personal storage/locker room for quick storing of golf clubs, skis, and other large recreational equipment.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
