MIG Real Estate Completes Phoenix-Biltmore Hotel Conversion to Hampton Inn

Includes Major Renovations to Property Formally Known as Hotel Highland

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- MIG Real Estate, LLC, a Calif.-based real estate investment company, announced the completion of a $1.8 million conversion of the Hotel Highland in Phoenix to the Hampton Inn brand. Renovations of the new Hampton Inn Phoenix-Biltmore include major upgrades to the hotel's lobby, breakfast lounge and guest rooms.

Located in the heart of the Camelback corridor, the hotel will capture a large share of business travelers visiting prominent companies in the approximately nine million square feet of surrounding office properties. MIG Real Estate acquired the property in 2010 following a $5.5 million renovation in 2009. Concord Hospitality Properties, based in Raleigh, NC, is the hotel operator and oversaw the renovation project, designed by Nadel Studio One Inc. of San Diego, Calif.

This marks the second conversion of a property to the Hampton Inn hotel brand for MIG Real Estate. MIG previously converted the 87-room Point Inn & Suites located at 350 South Highway 89 in Jackson, WY. into a Hampton Inn earlier this year.

"The Hampton Inn Phoenix-Biltmore is ideally positioned for business travelers in the Phoenix market," said Greg Merage, Chief Executive Officer of MIG Real Estate. "Renovating this hotel marks a trend in business travelers looking for a higher standard of travel experience, amenities and value-added service offerings."

The Hampton Inn Phoenix Biltmore is located at 2310 E. Highland Ave. (near 24th St. & Camelback). Enhancements to the hotel include 120 modern spacious guest rooms and six suites equipped with the Hampton Inn signature bedding program: Cloud Nine, the Hampton Bed Experience. Additional renovations include 32" LCD flat screen televisions, functional work desks with built-in electronic outlets on the desk lamps, ergonomic chairs, a large fitness room with modern athletic equipment and an outdoor heated pool. The hotel also offers 2,700 square feet of flexible space, including the Phoenix room, capable of hosting up to 100 guests for meetings or seminars.

"Hampton Inn has a reputation for consistent quality and value. We see a great opportunity in partnering with such an established and trusted hotel brand," said Merage.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
