One Ocean Resort & Spa Partners with Stellers Gallery

FEATURING FLORIDA ART INSTALLATIONS IN RESORT'S GALLERY SPACE

ATLANTIC BEACH, FL. March 20, 2017 – Northeast Florida’s chic beachfront boutique resort, One Ocean Resort & Spa, proudly announces a partnership with Stellers Gallery, a full service, northeast Florida, fine arts gallery featuring Florida-based artists. As part of the collaboration, Stellers Gallery will install artwork within the gallery space at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The first artist featured under the new gallery relationship is John Schuyler, a mixed media fine art painter.

“We are thrilled to partner with Stellers Gallery,” says David Mariotti, general manager at One Ocean Resort & Spa. “Through their expert connections with the art community, Stellers has chosen the perfect artist for our first Gallery installation. John Schuyler’s pieces beautifully reflect the artful and inspired setting at One Ocean. I am very excited to see this partnership come to fruition.”

With a nearby gallery located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Stellers Gallery has promoted the importance of local art for over 20 years. Currently one of the longest operating, privately owned galleries in northeast Florida, Stellers has more than 80 different artists on display and while creating an artistic presence in almost every private club, high-profile commercial business and sophisticated residence within the Jacksonville area. The gallery houses a variety of styles ranging from conservative and traditional, to expressionist, abstract and whimsical.

John Schuyler has been experimenting with various paint techniques since the 1990s and brings a unique vision to The Gallery at One Ocean with his exhibit, Where the earth meets the sky. As a mixed media fine art painter, Schuyler works in a unique process of layering, pouring, scraping, and scratching into the surface, leaving traces of earlier information and a buildup as well as an overlap of successive stages. His unconventional approach causes viewers to continually adjust their attention in order to consider the various perceptual possibilities within the subject. The rough textures in contrast with the simplistic and balanced nature of his pieces often leave viewers with a powerful impression.

One Ocean Resort & Spa promotes its Gallery as a representation on the confluence of art, luxury and nature. Beyond The Gallery and throughout the resort, guests find an array of artistic creations that help create a pure, organic ambiance that awakens and inspires. From dramatic sculptures to serene wall installations, inspiration is everywhere at One Ocean Resort & Spa. The elegant and creative spirit of the resort is captured through a compelling composition of artists, each offering a unique vision inspired by the beachfront setting.

Revenue Management: Technology and Big Data
Like most businesses, hotels are relying on technology and data to drive almost every area of their operations, but perhaps this is especially true for hotel Revenue Managers. There has been an explosion of technology tools which generate a mountain of data – all in an effort to generate profitable pricing strategies. It falls to Revenue Managers to determine which tools best support their operations and then to integrate them efficiently into their existing systems. Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Planning, and Online Reputation Management software are basic tools; others include channel managers, benchmark reports, rate shopping tools and review systems, to name a few. The benefits of technology tools which automate large segments of a Revenue Manager’s business are enormous. Freed from the time-consuming process of manual data entry, and having more accurate data available, allows Revenue Managers to focus on analysis, strategies and longer-term decision-making. Still, for most hotels, the amount of data that these tools generate can be overwhelming and so another challenge is to figure out how to effectively utilize it. Not surprisingly, there are some new tech tools that can help to do exactly that. There are cloud-based analytics tools that provide a comprehensive overview of hotel data on powerful, intuitive dashboards. The goal is to generate a clear picture, at any moment in time, of where your hotel is at in terms of the essentials – from benchmarking to pricing to performance – bringing all the disparate streams of data into one collated dashboard. Another goal is to eliminate any data discrepancies between finance systems, PMS, CRM and forecasting systems. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will address all these important developments and document how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
