Amerimar Enterprises

MFC PR works closely with owners to increase the value of their assets by driving attention to their properties, using creative public relations programming – including two hotels acquired by Philadelphia-based Amerimar.

Hutton Hotel, Nashville

MFC PR has represented the hotel since Amerimar opened it in January, 2009.

Through a combination of onsite events and aggressive 
media relations, we positioned the property to receive
 national accolades, and move aggressively into the
 post-recession recovery.

We brought the TODAY Show’s Peter Greenberg to the hotel, where he did a live national radio broadcast. We helped solidify the hotel’s hosting Al Gore’s Climate Project’s international summit meeting, which was covered in media around the world.

We placed articles in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, American Way Magazine, and the hotel was name to the Conde Nast Traveler’s “Host List” of new hotels. Plus much more.

And that was just in the first year.

St. Ermin’s Hotel, London

MFC PR announced the acquisition of the historic St.
Ermin’s hotel, Westminster, London, in May, 2010.

Shortly thereafter, the company’s COO 
appeared on FOX Business, and we publicized the
 redevelopment and reopening of the hotel throughout
the American trade media and in group and MICE publications in Europe.

The COO was soon interviewed by Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal, and Hotel Business magazine.

The hotel was sold in early 2015 and realized a stunning profit for the ownership group.
