Hyatt Place – Delano (Bakersfield), CA
HTL assisted its client from the inception of this four story, 100-room, upper mid-market hotel development which includes a café and lounge, 3,850 square foot ballroom divisible into four smaller meeting rooms, 3,000 square feet of adjacent garden meeting space, fitness room and pool/spa. Initially we worked with the owner to identify the best franchise opportunity for the site followed by assistance in the contract negotiations. Once secured, we worked with the architect to optimize the building layout for the site and coordinated closely with the owner and the various development team members including the general contractor, lender, FF&E purchasing agent and installation company. We performed all the pre-opening services in a timely manner to meet Hyatt’s requirements to open the hotel including among others the hiring and training of the hotel staff and implementation of a sales, marketing and revenue management strategy.
