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.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation

Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
