by | Nov 10, 2021

CIIC PR announced today the addition of Curator Hotel & Resort Collection to the agency’s prestigious hospitality portfolio following a competitive pitch. Curator Hotel & Resort Collection is a first-of-its-kind, owner-centric hospitality platform that offers a competitive alternative for independent lifestyle hotels looking to optimize their bottom line, helping to support them with best-in-class operating agreements, services, and technology, while allowing them to retain their identity.

“We are thrilled to partner with CIIC to help evolve and grow our Collection,” says Curator’s President, Jennifer Barnwell. “Throughout the RFP process, we were drawn to CIIC’s legacy of creating integrated campaigns for their hospitality clients, and we look forward to working together to reach new hotel owners and operators with Curator’s unique value proposition.”

CIIC will lead the planning and execution of a fully integrated communications campaign that will include media and trade relations, partnerships, activations, influencer relations, and thought-leadership opportunities. The agency will leverage its capabilities and strong industry relationships to increase exposure for the Collection in the US market.

“There has been such a growing demand for independent lifestyle hotels, as consumers increasingly seek out more unique experiences and environments,” says CIIC Founder and CEO Carolyn Izzo-Feldman. “It’s such an honor to be able to work with Curator Hotel & Resort Collection to strengthen and support their mission and commitment of supporting independent hotels.”

Founded by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and a group of industry-leading hotel operators, Curator Hotel & Resort Collection debuted in November 2020.  Curator combines the benefits of scale with independence, giving hotels an alternative to consolidation and saturation while providing them with the benefits and support that come with belonging to a larger collection of like-minded unique properties.
