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.

“We all realized that joining forces globally made perfect sense and, in a business where multiple management companies exist yet none with our full-service strength, professionalism and abilities, merging was a massive win-win for both parties," McGlashan said in a statement. "Our perfectly aligned core values of integrity, courage, transparency and tenacity mean we could not be more pleased to have found a partner with such a strong cultural fit with a longstanding, highly regarded reputation in the hospitality industry.”

Valor Hospitality Partners, which has 48 hotels in its portfolio, is a full-service hotel acquisition, development, management and asset management company offering an array of services including site selection, product selection, entitlements, financing solutions, conceptual design, construction and project management, procurement, technical services, preopening management and operations management. Valor also offers consulting services on a wide range of project scenarios including working with new or existing ownership groups on reviewing site selection, assessing feasibility studies and project budgets, compiling project budgets and underwriting.
