HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | Now Available On-Demand

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


Marriott International honored top owner and franchise companies at the annual MINA & Full Service Owners Conference held recently at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Four companies—Concord Hospitality, The Kessler Collection, Sage Hospitality and White Lodging Services—were awarded the Partnership Circle Award, the highest honor Marriott presents to its owner and franchise partners for hospitality excellence. Marriott’s Partnership Circle Award honors owners and operators who have a strong alignment with Marriott in a number of different areas, from overall culture to sharing a long-term commitment with Marriott and its guests. The awards criteria also includes product growth, engagement, RevPAR growth and overall product integrity.

Other awards at the conference included Development Partner of the Year: Stonebridge Companies for its Renaissance Denver Downtown Hotel and Renaissance New York Midtown South Hotel; and openings of the year: The Brown Palace Hotel and Spa, Autograph Collection and Milwaukee Marriott Downtown.
