Traci Martin, the revenue manager for the property stated, “The strategy for a new hotel is to get our name out there and let people know we are open. We make sure we are selling on every possible channel, and pricing ourselves correctly for the market.”
Throughout the month of June, Pillar’s Revenue Management team has added multiple new contracts to their portfolio of 286 properties. This rapid growth is consistent with the plans Pillar announced in January of this year to gain business and expand the reach and recognition of the company.
Jackie Edmonds, Senior Regional Director of Sales & Marketing at InterMountain Management stated, “The team at InterMountain feels fortunate to work with Pillar Hotel and Resorts. Their revenue management department is the most focused and detailed team I have ever worked with and we consistently see increases in rates, occupancy, and RevPAR indexes within our portfolio. We know that the TPS Albuquerque will ramp-up extremely well with Pillar managing our revenue efforts.”
“Pillar’s Revenue Management team is unique because we learn every system for every hotel company; Choice, Holiday Inn Express, Marriott, Hilton, etc.,” said Martin. “Not only that, but we have system experts in all major brands, so we always have a go-to person in the office that can help if we have questions about any particular brand. Our team is dependable, and we deeply care about the success of each hotel and our revenue management portfolio as a whole.”
