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.

The Holiday Inn is a 20-minute drive from downtown Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale. The hotel is located roughly five miles south of downtown Chandler, in the Ocotillo neighborhood. Ocotillo is a submarket within Chandler due to the proximity to Price Road Corridor, which is home to the area’s top employers including Wells Fargo, PayPal, Orbital ATK, Microchip Technology, and General Motors. The Holiday Inn benefits from being the closest Hotel to Intel’s Ocotillo Campus, which is responsible for manufacturing Intel’s latest technology. Additionally, the hotel is located adjacent to Ocotillo Golf Club, which serves as an amenity to the hotel. Phil Mickelson’s company recently purchased the club, and plans to modernize and expand the facility by renovating the entire golf course, practice areas and club house.
