“It is a tremendous honor to have such strong support among Condé Nast Traveler readers,” said JW Marriott Denver general manager Mike Case. “The entire staff is thrilled by this recognition because we strive to offer an exceptionally high level of service and luxury to our guests every day.”

Hotel Sales & Marketing: The Shift to Digital is Leading the Way
Hotel Sales & Marketing departments have been dramatically transformed in recent years. Advances in technology have prompted changes in consumer buying habits, and these professionals have had to adapt to keep up. Like so many other facets in the industry, the shift to digital is leading the way. An established online presence provides marketing professionals with more direct interaction with their guests; the capacity to collect more detailed information about them; and an increased ability to share their brand stories. These endeavors can be accomplished through website usage but increasingly, social media is assuming a larger role in the digital mix. Social media has moved marketing into a new era. Hotels that offer a good product, at a good value, and consistently deliver that product and price, will benefit from thousands of people who view positive comments on travel review sites. Online reviews continue to be a popular way for users to determine which companies they can trust. And though online marketing may have changed how professionals connect with and convert customers, they still need to focus on traditional marketing channels as well - ones that are cost-effective; protect price integrity; and which generate the most bookings. Some of the larger chains are employing efforts that feature both a top down (global) and bottom up (local) approach to ensure that new business is generated from the greatest number of sources. These include the use of loyalty programs, monthly e-mail newsletters, brand identity tools, advertising campaigns tailored to specific regions, regional marketing co-op programs, and business-to-business marketing campaigns. The November Hotel Business Review will examine some of these critical issues and explore what some sales and marketing professionals are doing to address them.
