Radisson Hotel Group is proud to announce that Cour des Loges hotel in Vieux-Lyon, a UNESCO World Heritage listed district, will join Radisson Collection. The latest signing brings the Group's portfolio in France to 19 hotels and 3,280 rooms in operation or under development.

Located in the historic Vieux-Lyon district, Cour des Loges will receive a thoughtful renovation in 2021, introducing the exceptional Radisson Collection brand to the hotel while preserving the character and history of the building.

Elie Younes, Executive Vice President & Chief Development Officer, Radisson Hotel Group says: "Radisson Collection is a relevant brand to owners and guests alike - around 35 hotels have joined the brand in less than 18 months. We are very pleased to announce the signing of our third Radisson Collection hotel in France. We thank our partners for their trust in our brand and people".

The renovation will position the hotel as a premium destination for business and leisure travelers alike, featuring 60 guest rooms, including two junior suites and four suites.

In keeping with Lyon's reputation for haute cuisine, the hotel will offer guests a variety of gourmet fine dining options, including Michelin star chef Anthony Bonnet's restaurant, Les Loges. Having trained alongside the best award-winning culinary experts in Lyon, Anthony has created a dining destination within the hotel, with a spectacular menu using locally sourced produce. Elsewhere, diners can also indulge in the bistro Le Café-Épicerie and relax in the cigarette lounge bar, Le Bar Fumoir. Guests will also be offered cooking classes hosted by experts at La Petite Loge.

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.
