Supporting and Engaging The Communities We Serve

Community involvement is essential to our success.

Hospitality is what we do; and we don’t think that should be limited to our hotels. We extend that hospitality to the communities that we call home by volunteering, donating and serving on boards and committees. With hotels across several states, we encourage all of our associates to take pride in their individual communities as well and find ways to make an impact on their neighborhoods.

Our community involvement is most gratifying when we support organizations that align with our company values. Supporting educational organizations, disaster relief and public service efforts are just a few of the ways that we help make our communities better.
