The St. Joe Company to Develop Home2 Suites by Hilton Hotel in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

USA, Panama City Beach, Florida. August 12, 2021

The St. Joe Company announced plans for a Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. St. Joe intends to build the hotel on its property near West Hewett Road just north of US Highway 98.

Plans call for the four-story hotel to feature 107 guest rooms including some one-bedroom suites. The amenities are planned to include a pool, a fitness center and an outdoor lounge with a fire pit. All Home2 Suites by Hilton hotels provide guests with free WiFi and complimentary breakfast. The planned location for the hotel is less than one mile from the iconic Scenic Highway 30A corridor and in close proximity to Topsail Hill Preserve State Park and the area's white-sand beaches.

"This hotel is a great fit for this location and is a great complement to our other hotels in the area," said Patrick Murphy, Senior Vice President of Hospitality for St. Joe. "More than 4 million people visit this area each year to enjoy the beautiful beaches, state parks, vibrant restaurant scene and abundant local shopping. This hotel is planned to be in the middle of it all."

Once complete, the planned hotel will be managed by St. Joe. The Company owns or operates five hotels and with this planned Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel, it will have an additional six hotels under development or construction. Upon their completion, these projects will bring St. Joe's hotel portfolio to 1,170 rooms.

St. Joe intends to break ground on the planned Home2 Suites by Hilton hotel later in 2021 and anticipates a 2023 opening.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings

Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
