With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


The Home2 Suites by Hilton Yakima Airport will be located in Rainer Square, which has been radically transformed by Hogback Development from an under-developed and under-utilized 1960s style-center to the vibrant mix of restaurants, retail and commercial business it has become today. The property is less than a mile from Yakima Air Terminal, Yakima Valley Community College, SOZO Sports Complex and Virginia Memorial Hospital.

Since its inception in 1984, THG has managed and/or owned more than 125 properties in 25 states representing over 20 brands, directed the design and construction of nearly 50 new hotels and completed the acquisition of nearly $200 million in private investment through the Hotel Group Opportunity Funds.
