Paramount Lodging Advisors (PLA) has successfully executed the transaction of the 198-room Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield California. The property is located at 5101 California Avenue, Bakersfield CA 93309. Senior Managing Director Scott Griemsmann and Senior Associate Subu Thiagarajan represented the seller in the sale.

This transaction presented the buyer a unique opportunity to acquire a core-branded Marriott hotel at a fraction of replacement cost in a market with significant growth prospects. The hotel is situated on 7.7 acres of prime commercial land in Central Bakersfield which also offers the buyer the potential for future redevelopment.

"The Bakersfield market has several factors influencing the market's growth including being number one and two in the nation in agriculture and oil production, respectively. In addition, the metro is ranked in the top 20 of the nation for the following: Millennial job growth, STEM job creation, upward mobility, engineering jobs, strongest recovering metro, fastest growing metro GDP and best performing metro area. This growth combined with the region's access to Northern and Southern California presented a compelling story for the investment."

Eco-Friendly Practices: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. 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.
