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.

Sales & Marketing: Who Owns the Guest?
Hotels and OTAs are, by necessity, joined at the hip and locked in a symbiotic relationship that is uneasy at best. Hotels require the marketing presence that OTAs offer and of course, OTAs guest’s email when it sends guest information to a hotel, effectively allowing OTAs to maintain “ownership” of the guest. Without ready access to guest need hotel product to offer their online customers. But recently, several OTAs have decided to no longer share a data, hotels are severely constrained from marketing directly to a guest which allows them to capture repeat business – the lowest cost and highest value travelers. Hotels also require this data to effectively market to previous guests, so ownership of this data will be a significant factor as hotels and OTAs move forward. Another issue is the increasing shift to mobile travel bookings. Mobile will account for more than half of all online travel bookings next year, and 78.6% of them will use their smartphone to make those reservations. As a result, hotels must have a robust mobile marketing plan in place, which means responsive design, one-click booking, and location technology. Another important mobile marketing element is a “Click-to-Call” feature. According to a recent Google survey, 68% of hotel guests report that it is extremely/very important to be able to call a hotel during the purchase phase, and 58% are very likely to call a hotel if the capability is available in a smartphone search. The June Hotel Business Review will report on some of these issues and strategies, and examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating them into their operations.
