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.

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.
