DENVER, CO./Phoenix, AZ. January 4, 2017 – HREC Investment Advisors is pleased to announce it has arranged the sale of the 236-guestroom Beverly Heritage Hotel located in Milpitas, California. The boutique hotel was acquired by HPT IHG-2 Properties Trust.

Bill Murney, Senior Vice President, and Scott Stephens, COO and Senior Principal, exclusively represented PHF Ruby LLC during the transaction.

“Sonesta has been looking for a west coast presence, and the new Sonesta Silicon Valley provides that beachhead property. Sonesta will spend millions of dollars on renovating every part of the hotel to provide the first class accommodations they have built their reputation around,” stated Murney.

The property has great access and visibility in addition to being surrounded by the numerous corporate demand generators including many of the world’s largest technology companies, including Cisco’s HQ a couple of miles away,, and the newly built Levi Stadium home of the San Francisco 49ers and Super Bowl 50. The strength of the Silicon Valley economy has attracted new international and domestic routes to the Mineta San Jose International Airport (SJC) which also benefits the hotel.

Coming Up In The March Online Hotel Business Review




Feature Focus
Human Resources: Inspiring a Journey of Success
In an increasingly competitive environment where hotels are competing to attract, and more importantly, to keep top talent, Human Resource managers are realizing the need to focus on improving their Employee Experience. Smart managers are embracing the idea of Employee Wellness which translates into a system of physical, mental, emotional, and purposeful well-being. Some organizations are even providing free counseling for their employees and their dependents. The goal is to nurture, support and engage with their employees in a way that increases productivity, improves customer service, enhances loyalty, and creates a more harmonious work environment for all. Along with this development is the need for more effective, ongoing training. Many HR managers rely on external training firms for this, but there is a growing trend which taps the experience and expertise that already exists within the organization. For example, younger employees likely have greater knowledge of social media which an older generation might struggle with. Harnessing this peer-to-peer learning can be an efficient and cost effective way of increasing skills, and as a result, the knowledge transferred is likely to be more acceptable and relevant. Finally, HR managers need to foster an environment that empowers people and taps into their full potential, inspiring a personal journey of success. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the strategies and techniques that human resource directors are currently developing in order to achieve success.
