In an article by the Austin Business Journal, Horseshoe Bay Resort Marriott, previously managed by Marriott Corporation will now be run by Resort owner, The Jaffe Group. The 349-room hotel will now operate as a Marriott franchise hotel and all the former Marriott hotel employees will become part of Horseshoe Bay Resort's staff.
One benefit for customers is that they will now have one point of contact for the resort and hotel, ownership says. "This transition enables the employees of Horseshoe Bay Resort to provide seamless service for members and guests," says G. Michael Thomas, president and chief operating officer.
Plans are under way to introduce a number of new or upgraded amenities, including a 90-foot-long yacht for private events and group functions, a new restaurant at the Yacht Club, new marina facilities, a new, state of the art spa and fitness center and a completely renovated Cap Rock Clubhouse.
