Valencia Group and the Community
Valencia Group connects our hotels to the communities where we are built through special events that promote the hotel’s essence. Our hotels have the proven ability to create a unique identity for each property, leveraging its individuality and character to instill a sense of place and connection with the local community. Each of our properties serve as a bustling destination and a gathering place for both overnight guests and locals. We strive to offer each guest a truly special experience, combining the finer aspects of travel with exceptional service in a vibrant hotel that incorporates worldly design and local culture. Our mission is to deliver a genuine experience of Timeless Hospitality® in hotels with heart and soul.
No Shave November
Last November our hotels participated in No Shave November for the first time, raising $2,275 for the American Cancer Society. Each property selected two associates to throw away their razors for the month of November to raise awareness for cancer prevention. Valencia Group participants called on friends, family and industry partners to join in the fight against cancer and to chronicle their “growth.”
Throughout the month, our boutique hotels arranged for pop up activities with 10% of sales from select food and beverage items benefitting the American Cancer Society. In true Valencia Group style, visitors saw a variety of limited availability specialty cocktails such as the Mustache Mule and Bearded Lady. On December 1, National Shave Day, each hotel hosted a shave event featuring top local barbers. To join the movement and learn more, log onto No Shave November.
For the past seven summers, Valencia Group hotels have promoted a program in their hotels called “Book Smart.” Guests were able to give back to the local community by bringing in a print or audio book in exchange for a food and beverage credit during their stay. The Book Smart program has allowed Valencia Group hotels to donate over 500 books to libraries and children’s hospitals in our communities.
