Meyer Jabara Hotels Adds Top Performing Holiday Inn Express Aiken to Its Growing Portfolio

USA, Danbury, Connecticut. May 19, 2023

Meyer Jabara Hotels has been selected by Miami-based Pappas Hotels to manage the 95-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Aiken, S.C. The limited-service hotel without food and beverage is a top performer in the IHG portfolio. This deal marks the fourth Holiday Inn Express to be managed by MJH and its third hotel in South Carolina.

"The time finally came to buy a new hotel, and I knew it needed a professional management team to keep it operating at peak performance," said Dean Pappas, president of Pappas Hotels. "Several companies recommended Meyer Jabara due to its familiarity with both the Holiday In Express brand and the local market. We clicked right off the bat.

"Meyer Jabara is a hands-on owner/operator from the top down," he said. "CEO Richard Jabara and President Justin Jabara are never too busy to take my call. They are approachable, involved, and know the ins and outs of every deal. It's a great feeling to know I'm not just a number. This property does very well; it's 30 minutes from Augusta National Golf Club (home of the world-renowned Masters Golf Tournament) and large local companies such as Bridgestone, Owens Corning, and Crane continually drawing business travelers. We are confident that with Meyer Jabara running the show, guests will stay happy and revenues will soar."

The Holiday Inn Express Aiken is located just 10 minutes from the Savannah River Site, 30 minutes from the historic downtown area and Augusta Airport, and in close proximity to Aiken's popular equestrian events. The hotel features the Express Start Breakfast Café (with complimentary hot breakfast), a 24-hour convenience store, an outdoor pool and a modern fitness center. Guestrooms feature a large bedroom and separate living room area with sofa bed, work desk, microwave and mini fridge.

"We are delighted to add this high-performing asset to the Meyer Jabara Hotels portfolio," Justin Jabara said. "Opening in 2014, this hotel does not require much work, although it will be undergoing a property-improvement plan (PIP) in the next year. We are eager to begin working with the existing team to find new ways to improve operations and build even more momentum for this extremely busy hotel in a bustling area known for its equine pursuits, the arts, nature, and more."

Hotel Spa: Reconnecting With Nature

Hotel spas have never been so popular. The global wellness market is estimated to be in excess of $1.5 trillion with an annual growth rate of 5 to 10 percent. Consequently, spas are continually developing new programs, products, tools, and environments to meet the needs of guests who are seeking total body health and wellness. One trend that spas are embracing is a multiplicity of ways to reconnect with nature. Spas are moving beyond the “garden” model and going deeper into the countryside and forest, providing immersion in a wilder natural setting. Wild swimming, forest bathing, foraging, outdoor massage, and hiking trails are concepts that are being designed into the spa journey. Some hotels have built individual cabins deep in the forest for sauna, bathing and massage treatments, and others are offering bedroom suites which are located in cabins or tree houses away from the main hotel. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these and other developments, and how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
