Giving TuesdayWe’re so grateful for all the charities and nonprofits out there that are making the world a better place, including John Hopkins Children’s Hospital and the Food Bank of Manatee. This past GivingTuesday, employees from our hotels in Ellenton, Clearwater and Sarasota had the pleasure of volunteering at these wonderful organizations!
School on WheelsEducation and giving back to our local communities are close to our hearts. This year, we donated backpacks, notebooks, calculators and more to School on Wheels of Massachusetts, so kids facing homelessness in our local communities will have the tools to succeed.
RecognitionA main part of our overall ideology is to recognize hotels and individuals who go above and beyond. We recently started an award program that recognizes the top hotels for succeeding in a variety of different areas including revenue, GOP, guest service scores, occupancy, loyalty and more.
Giving BackWe love working with such kind-hearted individuals who not only aim to assist their guests, but also the people within their local community. Each year, each of our hotels chooses a local charity to donate to or volunteer their time at to help children, families and individuals in need.
