Home2 Suites by Hilton Celebrates 50th Hotel Opening in Austin with Announcement of 50 Acts of Kindness Campaign
Volunteer Day Reinforces Brand’s Service Culture and Your2 Hands Program
MCLEAN, Va. - Empowering guests and Home2 Suites by Hilton team members across North America, Hilton Worldwide's award-winning mid-tier, all-suite hotel brand, is commemorating the opening of its 50th property - Home2 Suites by Hilton Austin North/Near the Domain - in a big way with the launch of the 50 Acts of Kindness campaign. As part of the 50 Acts of Kindness program, every Home2 Suites in North America will coordinate simultaneous community events on May 21.
The 50 Acts of Kindness initiative will result in approximately 1,000 total worked service hours and will be punctuated by a signature event in Austin. Working with Keep Austin Beautiful, Home2 Suites leadership, local team members and guests will help conduct a clean-up and rehabilitation of Great Hills Park, including picking-up a minimum of 50 pounds of trash and planting 50 pounds of native vegetation seeds.
"Home2 Suites' growth is wholly attributable to our guests and passionate team members." said Bill Duncan, global head for Home2 Suites by Hilton. "Our brand looks at extended stay in a fresh, new way, and Home2 Suites wanted to mark this milestone with a splash."
50 Acts of Kindness is a complement to Home2 Suites' Your2 Hands program, which enables hotel team members to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. In coordination with their local non-profit Your2 Hands community partner, each hotel will invite guests to participate in a 50 Acts of Kindness event to extend the positive impact of Home2 Suites beyond the hotel walls; ranging from food drives and volunteering at homeless shelters, to building new homes with Habitat for Humanity.
Duncan added, "This campaign helps Home2 Suites celebrate our brand and reflects the Home2 Suites service culture. Our guests appreciate the consideration we give to our local communities."
Home2 Austin North/Near the Domain, located at 2800 Esperanza Crossing, is within walking distance of the Domain, the tech hub of the city. It is also close to the city's downtown and entertainment districts.
At Home2 Suites guests experience easy access to technology, inviting community spaces, and trademark Home2 Suites amenities standard in all properties such as the Oasis lobby, Home2 MKT and Spin2 Cycle. The hotel's innovative accommodations maximize space by allowing guests to customize their room design with modular furniture pieces, helping them adapt the room to the way they live. A complimentary continental breakfast is also available at the Inspired Table that includes a variety of morning favorites made from all-natural ingredients like artisan sandwiches.
