Jodie Hutchins and Stacey Somerville had to the opportunity to attend the Hilton All Suites Conference in Anaheim, CA – inviting the GMs and DOSs from the Home 2 Suites, Homewood Suites and Embassy Suites brands for this bi-annual event.

Stacey had the honor of being asked to speak at the Home2 Suites brand session, based on her recent MVP designation earned in 2018, along with their high performing hotel for the brand.

Stacey also participated in a panel with another Home2 GM and Director of Sales, speaking in front of a crowd of about 1000 people, it was a great honor and a very humbling experience.  Stacey had many people approach her after the presentation thanking her and praising her portion of the panel, her biggest compliment came from Adrian Kurre, Global Head of the Home2 Suites by Hilton brand – telling her she nailed it! and boasting how their session was evaluated by the crowd earning a 5 out of 5 stars. It was a fantastic experience for both Jodi, and Stacey.

The Home2 Suites Dublin hotel was recognized for their participation in the Clean the World program.  The All Suites Brands all recycle slivers of soap left over from guests, along with the small amenity plastic bottles.  The soap is shipped back, melted down and turned into new soap that is distributed to 3rd World Countries and people in need in the United States.  The Home2 Dublin was recognized at the 4th Top Contributor to the program in 2019, within their brand – among 400 hotels currently opened.  Kudos to Jodie and their team for making this a priority at their hotel!
