The newly renovated guest rooms at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center maximize space, highlight specially curated artwork, and prominently bring technology to the forefront to create a superior guest experience. The end result is six floors (plus renovated corridors and a new lobby bar) of completely redesigned guestrooms and suites unique to Auburn.
While many of us have been traveling again for nearly a year, visiting properties and meeting with partners and colleagues, last month seemed to mark the return of the conference circuit in the hospitality industry. From intimate industry gatherings to the mega trade shows, there is no denying that hospitality professionals were, and are, ready. We are ready to travel, to find solutions, to make deals, and to celebrate surviving the last 18 months.
The hospitality industry is home to some truly amazing folks. And at the Lodging Conference in Phoenix, we had an opportunity to celebrate one of them. Continental was honored to host a champagne toast to Gilda Perez-Alvarado, Global CEO of JLL Hotels & Hospitality, following her receipt of The Castell Award at the Lodging Conference. We love seeing people with a passion for the hospitality industry get recognized for their contributions. Thank you to Peggy Berg, Harry Javer, Emily Pavelka Mueller, Karin Harrington, and Michelle Finn and all those who helped put together a lovely event.
