Stonebridge Companies, a privately owned, innovative hotel owner, operator and developer headquartered in Denver, has been awarded Marriott International’s Partnership Circle Award. This award is the highest honor granted to Marriott’s franchise partners; it recognizes those that exemplify Marriott’s vision, share a long-term business commitment, embrace brand initiatives, focus on associates to foster and manage an engaged workforce, invest in hotel product and deliver excellent customer service.

“Our newest inductees were selected based on their Guest Satisfaction results and RevPAR Index growth ... their support of our brand initiatives and strategies ... their ability to drive growth via additional hotels ... and finally, their overall partnership with Marriott International,” said Liam Brown, Marriott International president of franchising, owner services and MxM select brands, North America.

Stonebridge Companies will continue to expand with its Courtyard by Marriott Loveland/Fort Collins in Northern Colorado, planned to open in January 2019. 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
