Company Culture

Company Culture

We foster a diverse team that's focused on success, while providing an environment that encourages collaboration, new ideas, and initiatives where everyone can thrive.

We believe in serving our employees, guests, and our communities. We support our employees with incentives throughout the year. From potluck or pizza lunches to individual incentives for a job well done. Our employee centric culture is integral in providing superior guest service.   

We actively participate in community initiatives from hosting a community wide celebration for Coats For Kids at the Weirton Fairfield Inn and Suites, to hosting our annual visit with Santa Claus at the Fairfield Inn Athens and our epic "Trick Or Treat Spooktacular" at the Hampton Inn Athens.  Other properties support our local animal shelters with stained linens, volunteering to assist the elderly, and supporting various nonprofit groups like the Komen Race for The Cure, Stuart's Opera House, Ohio University, and Rural Action. 

We like to have fun. Our hotels regularly keep things interesting including a week long House Keeping Olympics, special visits by the Ice Cream truck for an afternoon break, and sponsoring teams to play in the annual Ohio Hotel and Lodging Association (OHLA) volleyball tournament to support victims of Human Trafficking. All of our hotels are active and engaged.
