Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Located at 509 Tunnel Road, the hotel is near attractions including The Biltmore Estate, which is America’s largest home and was built by George Vanderbilt. Glo Asheville is within a short distance of downtown, which is host to independent shops, farm-fresh eateries, breweries and tap-houses, historic sites and entertainment.

“I am thrilled to introduce the unique and modern Glo brand to Asheville, North Carolina,” Patel said. “Glo is a true depiction of today’s Best Western and I’m excited to be a part of the company’s innovative growth trajectory. I’m confident that this property will be a great asset to the community as a whole, and I’m excited to see what the future has in store here.”
