R.A. Rauch & Associates leads El Cordova to profits
SAN DIEGO, Calif (Jan. 31, 2011) – Hotel management company, R.A. Rauch & Associates (RAR) was awarded the contract to manage El Cordova Hotel, a 40 room boutique hotel in Coronado. As a third party management firm, R.A. Rauch & Associates has taken over the marketing and management aspects of the hotel in an effort to return El Cordova to the high level of quality and consistency it enjoyed in the recent past.
“We are really focusing on strengthening our relationships in the wonderful community of Coronado,” said Robert Rauch, President of R.A. Rauch & Associates. “Additionally, we are cooperating more with other local hotels in the area. That strategy has helped El Cordova’s business get off to a great start in 2011 and begin a return to the reputation is has previously enjoyed.”
El Cordova Hotel was originally built as a retirement mansion for wealthy industrialist Elisha Babcock in 1902. In 1930 it was converted to a Spanish Village hotel and has been updated and expanded several times to provide additional rooms and amenities. The most recent renovations took place in 2010. The Hotel sits in the heart of the Coronado village, on Orange Avenue, one block from the best beaches on the Island. It has twelve boutique shops on site and four restaurants, including The Brigantine and Miguel’s Mexican restaurant.
R.A. Rauch & Associates has managed the assets of several properties over the years, and has managed all of the properties in which it has had an ownership position. However, this is the first third party management agreement for R.A. Rauch & Associates in many years and the beginning of a new strategy where R.A. Rauch & Associates is able to assist selected hotel owners of premium properties in San Diego with hotel development, operations, and marketing.
“The economy has taken a nose dive over the last couple of years, but is finally on the upswing,” said Natasha Perez, Managing Director of Acquisitions and Development at R.A. Rauch & Associates. “Whether a hotel was under performing due to the economy, reduced sales force, or underachieving marketing, this is the perfect environment for our company to help get hotels back on track.”
