Focus Hospitality Management Appoints Chris Stanley as VP of Business Development and Asset Management

USA, Tucson, Arizona. October 14, 2020

Focus Hospitality Management, a full-service hotel management company with a total of seven properties in the Tucson metropolitan statistical area (MSA), has appointed hospitality veteran Chris Stanley as vice president of business development and asset management. He has been tasked with growing the hotel management company's portfolio.

"We're extremely pleased and excited about Chris joining the Focus team," said Bryan Tubaugh, executive vice president of Focus Hospitality Management. "His vast experience and undeniable success in expanding hospitality portfolios for some of the top leaders in the lodging industry over the past 30 years will without a doubt contribute to our growth strategy and continued success."

Before joining Focus Hospitality, Stanley spent nearly three years as vice president of development at Radisson Hotel Group, where he helped establish Radisson as a significant player in the California hotel market, expanding Radisson's footprint in the state by 45 percent.

Prior to his tenure at Radisson, he served as regional vice president of development at RLH Corporation, where, by focusing on brand growth, owner relations and portfolio management, he expanded the brand's footprint within the southwest region, which consisted of six states.

He spent nearly two decades at Starwood Hotels and Resorts, where he served in several leadership positions for the hospitality company's development team, including senior director of West development, a role he spent nearly 10 years in. In this position, he grew the brand's footprint by 143 percent and increased fee stream by more than $259 million in his region, which was made up of 14 western states.

He also held various corporate and hotel operations positions at Westin Hotels & Resorts for nearly a decade.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be part of the growing Focus family," Stanley said. "While Focus Hospitality today primarily operates properties in the Tucson metro area, the potential for growth nationally is evident and with the right partnerships in place the opportunities for geographic expansion are endless."

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.
