USA, Wako, Texas. June 25, 2020

Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, today announced it was awarded management of the currently under-construction, 104-room Residence Inn by Marriott Waco/South in Texas. Owned by Heritage Hospitality Group, a hospitality ownership/development/construction management company, the hotel is expected to open in mid-July 2020.

"The Residence Inn by Marriott Waco/South marks our fifth hotel in Texas and our 20th Marriott-branded property," said Robert Cole, president & CEO, HVMG. "Our familiarity with both the market and the brand will allow us to ramp up quickly as the hotel begins its run towards segment leadership for guests looking for a little more space. Additionally, our ability to create economies of scale and share best practices will benefit the hotel's profitability and guest satisfaction scores."

Located at 2424 Marketplace Drive, the four-story hotel is near Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center and proximate to Baylor University and multiple corporate entities and situated within the Central Texas Market Place development. The open-air shopping center features more than 60 retail and dining options. Hotel amenities will include a half-sport court, outdoor pool, outdoor patio, meeting room and fitness facility.

Designed for long stays, the brand will offer spacious suites with separate living, working, and sleeping zones that provide guests with the space and freedom to travel the way they like to live. With fully functional kitchens, complimentary grocery delivery service, 24-hour markets and complimentary breakfast, guests will be able to maximize their time and thrive while they travel.

"With their ‘Be Excellent' culture that enables empowered associates and gratified partners, HVMG easily stood out from the competition as the only operator for this unique hotel," said Hiren "Chico" Patel, CEO, founder and managing principal, Heritage Hospitality Group. "Waco is one of Texas' hidden gems, with more than 1.7 million visitors in the first seven months of 2018 alone. With HVMG at the helm, the Residence Inn quickly will exceed the expectations of guests to this charming town."

Hotel Group Meetings: Spirit of Innovation


Naturally, the Hotel Group Meeting business has been rocked during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the effects may be felt for years to come. But according to planners, there is pent-up demand for hotels to resume this area of their business and savvy hoteliers are being exceptionally creative in making that possible. The key is successfully implementing all recommended safety guidelines. For example, in addition to social and physical distancing, some planners are utilizing assigned seating as a way to keep people from using multiple seats and tables throughout an event. Some planners have also initiated a color-coded bracelet system that indicates the wearer's confidence level about being physically approached. Hybrid meetings are also increasingly popular, where some attendees join in person and others are looped in virtually. Other hotels have instituted a "bubble" approach, dedicating an entire wing to smaller groups, essentially walling them off from any health risks outside their area. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to address these concerns so that the group meeting business can safely resume.
