A Rare Winter Storm in Texas
The Texas hotels at Valencia Hotel Group are thawed out but during the week of February 14, 2021, we came together to figure out how to keep our guests happy and safe during a rare winter storm causing power outages and water shortages.
Our hotels were able to create mass meals for guests and staff and our hotels welcomed staff members and their families who were looking for shelter with no water, heat or electricity at home. Our talented on site engineering teams were able to shut off water and take care of repairs with water pipes until plumbers were able to arrive. Staff morale remained high providing excellent guest service to those guests who extended their stays due to poor road conditions and cancelled flights.
Poptails with a Purpose
The signature summer Poptail promotion at Valencia Hotel Group including special overnight packages was driven by a new motivation. In a time of a global pandemic, Poptails were back and this time with a Purpose. The annual offering across the collection of hotels took a percentage of beverage sales and room package sales and donated to non-profits in each of our communities. Raising over $4300, the beneficiaries for Poptails with a Purpose were:
