Experiencing the Design Difference at SpringHill Suites

SHS Contest Page Image Gone are the days of the benign and boring beige box hotels.  It's no longer enough to be consistent, convenient and affordable in our business.  Customers are looking for something special, even in our moderately priced brands, and we aim to please.

I recently had a chance to check out our newest SpringHill Suites in the Arts and Health District of Miami.  It's very close to where the old Orange Bowl was, right on the freeway and very, very close to the University of Miami Hospital.

Analysis Is the Key to Making Good Decisions

IStock_000003767147XSmall I recently read a book about General George Custer, famous for being annihilated in Custer's Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn before the turn of the 19th century.  Custer was a somewhat impetuous, but brilliant, officer.  At the age of 23, he was made a Brigadier General in the United States Army and was an important contributor to the Union victory at the Battle of Gettysburg.
