USA, Spartanburg, South Carolina. December 13, 2021

OTO Development has acquired Dunes Manor Hotel, Court & Suites in Ocean City, Maryland. The deal adds a long-popular hospitality complex to the hotelier's growing beachfront portfolio.

Headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina, OTO Development is part of The Johnson Group. The company develops, owns and operates select-service hotels across the country.

"Ocean City bills itself as the East Coast's favorite vacation destination," says Corry Oakes, CEO of OTO Development. "More than 8 million people visit every year - and we are delighted to be here now, too."

Located on an easily accessible barrier island, Ocean City is a popular drive-market destination for people in New York City, Baltimore and Washington DC. The town boasts 10 miles of beach, 2.5 miles of classic boardwalk and 17 championship golf courses. It hosts the White Marlin Open, one of the largest fishing tournaments in the world, and draws anglers all year long with the promise of marlin, tuna, wahoo and other game fish.

The Dunes Manor complex offers three experiences within one well-positioned resort that's adjacent to the boardwalk terminus - one of the best in America, per The Travel Channel - and across the street from Jolly Roger Amusement Park. It's also convenient to Ocean City's Roland E. Powell Convention Center.

The 170-room Dunes Manor Hotel combines Victorian grandeur with an ocean-front charm that includes rocking chairs and afternoon tea. The 64-key Dunes Suites offers a little extra beachfront space, including full kitchens and private balconies. Dunes Court is a retro-chic motel whose 49 rooms are open seasonally. Among the amenities are indoor and outdoor pools, F&B outlets including The Victorian Room and the Zippy Lewis Lounge, and 5,000 square feet of meeting/event space.

Dunes Manor Hotel, Court & Suites is located at 2800 Baltimore Ave. in Ocean City, Maryland. Make reservations by calling 410.289.1100 or visiting DunesManor.com. Follow @DunesManorHotel on Facebook and Instagram.

Sales & Marketing: Integrating Technology

The Sales & Marketing department is responsible for maximizing a hotel's revenue by developing programs to increase occupancy and to make profitable use of its meeting and leisure facilities. Increasingly, managers are utilizing sophisticated digital technology to help them achieve those goals. Virtual Reality is being integrated into booking engines which provide potential guests the opportunity to tour a property from afar, including wedding, event and food & beverage facilities. Voice Search has also become a popular marketing tool. Using smart home devices, it's now possible for customers to book hotels entirely through voice commands. Chatbots are becoming more ubiquitous as hotels seek to refine their online customer service. Chatbots can answer common questions, push key marketing messages, increase direct bookings, and even guide customers through the booking process. Finally, hotels are already preparing for the debut of the Metaverse and planning how sales and marketing departments will fully participate. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting and how they are benefiting from them.
