Sandpiper Hospitality - a Virginia-based hotel management company that specializes in the extended-stay segment - continues to see strong growth in 2020, enjoying high occupancy levels across its 42 hotels, including the addition of two new South Carolina Candlewood Suites properties last month.

"Our hotels have been performing at occupancy rates well above 80% for months, which is really quite remarkable given the COVID-19 pandemic," said Sandpiper Hospitality President & CEO Jim Darter. "Our extended stay platform has proven itself this year as it has performed at the top of the hospitality spectrum in terms of occupancy and market share. Sandpiper Hospitality is definitely a company that continues to be on the rise - we will be announcing several new third-party management agreements in the next few weeks."

  • Expanded its operational reach from six to 12 states and across the entire country

Sandpiper Hospitality is approved by Marriott International, IHG Hotels & Resorts, Choice Hotels and Extended Stay America to manage their select-service and extended stay brands.

"Sandpiper Hospitality is a leader in the lodging industry, particularly in the extended-stay segment, and we are excited to establish a relationship with them following the acquisition of two Candlewood Suites hotels in South Carolina," said Kevin Schramm, Vice President of Development, Mainstream Brands for U.S. & Canada, IHG Hotels & Resorts. "We look forward to more opportunities to grow together as Sandpiper increases its management platform across the country."

In 2021, Sandpiper Hospitality plans to expand into additional market tiers and premium-branded hotels, including new properties in Georgia, North Carolina & Nevada.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
