In 1998, we launched a brand designed for the traveler looking for more space and a sense of style. That brand was SpringHill Suites. Now, we’ve taken it a step further.
When you think of space and style, what comes to mind? To me, it’s art galleries.
For the last two years, SpringHill Suites has held ArtNight. Our lobbies turn into galleries filled with works from local artists. From photography to cartoon drawings, glass sculptures to air brushed motorcycles, the artwork has been sensational.
Embracing the local arts has not only strengthened our ties within our communities, but also enhanced our guests’ experience, giving them a real taste of the local art scene. You can view some ArtNight pictures and video on SpringHill's new facebook page.
With all this talent at our hotels, we’re asking artists -- expert or amateur – to design a special edition hotel key card. The winning submission will be featured on key cards next year at SpringHill’s nearly 300 hotels. Key cards have high visibility, so be creative. I only hope our guests will turn them in when they leave.
Anyone 18 years of age or older can submit their key card at www.springhillsuites.com. Deadline is November 1st.
We’re already seeing some awesome entries. I’ll post the winning entry along with other finalists.
I’m Bill Marriott and thanks for helping me keep Marriott on the Move.
