Tacoma’s Twitter-Friendly Hotel

According to Tacoma News Tribune, Twitter, tweets and a tweet-up are good for business. The paper came to this conclusion after 120 people gathered at Hotel Murano in downtown Tacoma last night for the city’s first major commercial tweet-up.
“It’s fun if you can meet people face-to-face,” said Dina Nishioka, spokeswoman for Provenance Hotels, the Portland-based owners of downtown Tacoma’s Hotel Murano.
“This is great for tweeters who have never been in the hotel,” she said. “This also helps strengthen our customer relationships, provide more awareness and partner with local groups.”
John McPhee, a senior account executive with Anvil Media in Portland, said, “Two years ago, more or less, I got Provenance on Facebook and Twitter. It was a good opportunity for them to start listening.” It was also a good opportunity to improve the hotels’ search rankings with a content plan that includes blogs.
