Bullring Hotel Joins Unusual Hotels Of The World

. October 14, 2008

SAN PEDRO, Mexico, July 26, 2005. Hotel Quinta Real Zacatecas encircles the 17th Century San Pedro bullring, the first, (and perhaps one of the less successful!!!), in Mexico. Blending the modern conveniences of an all-suite hotel with the splendour of original, colonial architecture, Quinta Real Zacatecas faces the city's ancient arched viaduct and is an intelligent conversion that provides all the facilities of a major hotel in a prime city location.

You are never far from history as even your bed is recessed under an original stone or wooden arch, and several of the 49 suites overlook the historic main plaza.

The hotel provides the setting for memorable dining. Mexican and international cuisine is available at La Plaza restaurant and El Botarel bar which both overlook the bullring plaza.

The hotel can provide conference, banqueting facilities and meeting rooms for up to 200 people. Cuadrillas salon and Toriles are ideal for meetings while San Pedro is perfect for conferences. Fabulous, atmospheric themed-evenings can be arranged in El Ruedo, the bullring, which is a stunning place to hold cocktail parties.

Revenue Management: Focus On Profit

Revenue Management is still a relatively new profession within hotel operations and as such, it continues to evolve. One significant trend in this area is a shift away from using revenue as the foundation to generate key performance indicators (KPIs) and to instead place the emphasis on profit. Traditionally, revenue managers have relied on total revenue per available room (TrevPAR) and revenue per available room (RevPAR) as the basis of their KPIs. Now, some revenue managers are using gross operating profit per available room (GOPPAR) as their primary KPI. This puts profit at the center of revenue management strategy, and managers are increasingly searching for new ways to increase the profitability of their hotels. Return on Investment is the objective of any hotel investment, so it is only logical that profitability and ROI will be emphasized going forward. Another trend is an expanded focus on direct hotel bookings. Revenue managers know that one way to increase profitability is to steer guests away from online travel agencies (OTAs) and book directly with the hotel. This tactic also reinforces brand identity and loyalty, and encourages repeat business. In addition, it provides a valuable platform to market the hotel directly to the customer, and to upsell room upgrades or other services to them. Another trend for revenue managers involves automation in their software programs. Revenue management systems with automation are far more desirable than those without it. Automating data entry and logistics increases efficiency, allowing managers to spend more time on formulating strategy. As a bonus, an automated system helps with aggregating and interpreting data. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address these developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
