Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG) Chosen as Operator of 116-Room DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, Colorado

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. January 31, 2019

Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, has announced it has taken over management of the 116-room DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, Colorado. The hotel marks the company's 20th hotel addition in 2018 resulting in a record growth year.

“With the exciting addition of the DoubleTree by Hilton Vail, HVMG's portfolio grew more than 50 percent in 2018,” said Robert Cole, president & CEO, HVMG. “With our depth and expertise operating upper upscale, destination properties and resorts, we are well equipped to quickly improve the market share and profitability of this property. We ended 2018 on a high note, which included assuming management of the brand new Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach and the opening of the new Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Augustine Beach Oceanfront Resort, and we see 2019 as having further opportunities to grow our portfolio and strengthen our operating results.”

The Vail hotel recently underwent a transformative renovation and conversion to the DoubleTree by Hilton brand. The completely reimaged and “like-new” hotel is located at 2211 N. Frontage Road in Vail, Colo., a short shuttle ride to Vail Mountain Resort, and proximate to Beaver Creek. With a “Mountain Modern” design, the hotel features a lodge-inspired lobby and bar with a ten-foot, double-sided glass fireplace framed by a dramatic LED-accented slate wall and plenty of comfortable/casual and family friendly seating to encourage guests to hangout après ski and after dinner. Decor features natural aesthetics, including wood walls throughout the lobby, bar and great room; front desk framed by a stunning, art-accented, charred wood, wall backdrop; modern, large format, white tile throughout the lobby, great room and corridors; and custom framed prints that provide a sense of place. Guest rooms were designed for skiing families, and finishes are true to the Modern Mountain design aesthetic, featuring wood walls accenting comfy, pleather headboards, “live edge” style wood desks and built-in, wood-trimmed “portals” housing refrigerators, in-room safes and coffee makers. Most regular guest rooms provide daybed sofas that can be utilized for additional sleeping capacity in both double queen and king rooms.

Guests are invited to dine at one of the hotel's three restaurants. Pivot62, housed in the hotel's beautiful lobby with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the mountainside, provides shareable plates and local craft beer. The Westside Cafe, a famous breakfast place among locals and tourists alike, serves casual American classics for three meals daily, and the Casa Mexico offers authentic, made-to-order Mexican food serving lunch and dinner. Guest also can order room service or pick up grab-n-go items from the Colorado Made Market.

“Vail, Colorado has an exceptional reputation as one of the premier locations for winter sports, routinely listed in the top 10 of SKI Magazine's Annual Resort Rankings,” Cole added. “Guests come to the area expecting the latest amenities and luxuries after spending a long day on the slopes. The recent conversion, coupled with our hardworking on-site and corporate support teams, ensures that the DoubleTree by Hilton Vail will be a source of many wonderful memories for leisure, group and business travelers alike.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
