Home2 Story Flies Around the World

Home2 Suites St Simons Island, GA continues to receive global recognition for its unique setting attached to a newly constructed FBO at McKinnon St. Simons Island Airport (KSSI).  The 88-suite hotel is just over a year old, but already claiming great praise for its finishes and features.

Aviation International News recently completed a FBO spotlight on Golden Isles Aviation.

Converting to Formula Blue

The Holiday Inn Express – Winona, Mississippi will soon begin updating the decor throughout the hotel to be in line with the brand’s new look and feel.  Titled “Formula Blue”, the fresh interior design package will align the hotel with any new Holiday Inn Express that is opening this year.

This will be the second Holiday Inn Express & Suites that MMI Hotel Group has managed through a Formula Blue conversion in the last two years.  Communicating about and coordinating the construction such that guest impact is minimized is critical.  MMI has been successful in retaining guests through the process and positioning the hotel appropriately as the work is completed in a manner which provides the returns that ownership needs to pay for the work IHG requires.  We look forward to sharing this same strategy for Holiday Inn Express & Suites – Winona.

Airbnb, Labor Concerns, Tax Reform Lead Exec Forum

MEMPHIS, Tennessee—Hotel industry leaders who attended the recent Presidents’ Dinner in conjunction with the Memphis Lodging Industry Update were eager to speak about a number of topics affecting their businesses, but five portions of the two-hour conversation commanded most of the attention.

For the third year, Micajah Sturdivant, President of MMI Hotel Group, was asked to participate in this open discussion among the region’s top hotel ownership and management companies.  Remarks from the forum are provided in the link below.

MMI Asked to Manage IHG Hotel

MMI Hospitality Group is pleased to share that its hotel management division, MMI Hotel Group, has been asked to oversee all responsibilities of the recently acquired Holiday Inn Express & Suites -Winona, Mississippi.   The subject property is the first IHG asset for the ownership group and, therefore, having MMI as its third-party management company provides all parties with the confidence that the guest experience and franchise relations will earn high marks.

MMI Hotel Group has worked continuously with IHG since our company’s founding in 1956 when MMI opened the thirteenth Holiday Inn in the world.  Through this long-lasting relationship, MMI has not only been awarded for top performing properties across a number of categories, but has held positions of influence and leadership in the IHG Owners Association with three past Chairmen of the Board being MMI executives.
