Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Haven Hotels, which was introduced last December, now has two properties:
•    Duncanville, Texas -- 123 rooms in suburban Dallas
•    Pompano Beach, Fla. – 60 rooms on the state’s Gold Coast  

“We have dusted off many dated aspects of franchise agreements and made them more relevant, more forward-looking, and more owner-friendly,” said Doug Collins, Chairman of HLS.  “Our concept of limited rules and unlimited opportunity is gaining a lot of attention among hoteliers who want to just be hoteliers again.”
