Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG) to Operate New Embassy Suites by Hilton in Forsyth County, Alpharetta, Ga.

USA, Alpharetta, Georgia. February 25, 2020

Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, today announced it has been selected to operate the currently under-construction, 160-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton Halcyon Village Alpharetta on behalf of owners, Atlas Member Group of Alpharetta, LLC. The hotel is expected to open the beginning of 2021.

"HVMG continues to excel in growing our portfolio of managed and owned hotels with locations ranging from city center to suburbs of major cities like this project to resorts across the United States," said Robert Cole, president & CEO, HVMG. "While we maintain a national footprint, it always is special to add another property to our ‘hometown' current portfolio of eight hotels in the Atlanta Metro area. The Embassy Suites Halcyon marks HVMG's 10th Embassy Suites under management throughout the U.S. We will continue to target opportunities where we can add value so hotel owners can maximize their return on investment."

The new Embassy Suites hotel will be located within the new Halcyon mixed-use development at the intersection of McFarland Parkway and Georgia State Highway 400 (exit 12) in Northwest Alpharetta. The Embassy Suites by Hilton Halcyon Village Alpharetta will feature 4,815 square feet of meeting space, business center, indoor pool and a 1,200 square foot, state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga studio. Guests will be invited to enjoy complimentary breakfast and evening receptions. The hotel also will house E'Terie Market, allowing guests to pick up smaller meals and sandwiches, as well as a variety of sundries.

"When we were exploring different management companies for our Embassy Suites Halcyon project, HVMG was the clear choice for our group," said Dr. Jay Darji, owner and managing principal. "Robert Cole and team were brought in during the early stages of this venture and provided input during our development process. As the senior vice-president of investments for Sun Companies, a partner of Atlas Member Group of Alpharetta, I feel we have put together an exciting relationship between HVMG and Sun Companies, two of the leaders in hospitality management and development. I believe the Embassy Suites Halcyon will become the market leader in Forsyth County."

Halcyon is a $370 million, 135-acre, mixed-use village that opened its first wave of retailers and office users in September 2019. Upon completion, the project will include 480,000 square feet of office and retail space, luxury dine-in movie theater, the Big Creek Greenway walking trails, two hotels and 690 residential units. The project will be entirely Wi-Fi enabled and feature more than 50 acres of greenspace, bike-sharing programs and a curated retail mix, featuring the only Market Hall in Forsyth County. The Big Creek Greenway is a popular trail that winds through south Forsyth, Alpharetta and Roswell connecting over 10,000 households.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
