Turning Words Into Action

Succeeding in the hospitality industry requires a unique level of innovation, especially when operating on a national scale in a hyper-competitive landscape. Guest Services’ operations are constantly being evaluated, adjusted, and optimized by executive leadership, strong management, and third-party consultation. Implementing corporate initiatives is one of our most crucial methods for upholding the values we were founded on and ensuring the needs of our clients, employees, guests, communities, and planet are addressed. Below are some of our most successful programs to date.

Maintaining the values we're founded on

Guest Services Programs

The Excellence Award (E-Award) is given to a standout employee each year who exemplifies the following core attributes: leadership, creativity, initiative, employee relations, financial and customer service. We are proud of all winners and are happy to say that over the past 10 years, the E-Award has been given seven times to a minority employee and four times to a female employee.
