Horton Grand Hotel Partners with Stash Hotel Rewards

Historic San Diego Hotel Now Part of Nation's Largest Points-Based Rewards Program

. April 24, 2014

SAN DIEGO, CA - April 24, 2014 - Horton Grand Hotel, located in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, announced today that it has partnered with Stash Hotel Rewards, the nation's largest points-based rewards program for independent hotels. As a result of this new partnership, Stash members are now able to earn and redeem points at Horton Grand Hotel, a historic hotel that once played home to the legendary Wyatt Earp.

“The rich history of the hotel coupled with its remarkable location make the Horton Grand Hotel an extremely popular choice for the discerning traveler,” said Terry Sobkowiak, Director of Sales and Marketing at Horton Grand Hotel. “We provide our guests with an experience that's steeped in character and is unmistakably distinctive from the chain hotels in the area. By partnering with Stash, we're now able to strengthen our bond with these travelers by offering a rewards program that's as unique as the experience we provide.”

The Horton Grand Hotel was opened in 1986 after a meticulous rebuild joined San Diego's two most historic properties - The Grand Horton Hotel and Brooklyn-Kahle Saddlery Hotel. Purchased by a local San Diego businessman for $1.00 each, the buildings were deconstructed brick-by-brick, catalogued and stored until being rebuilt at the current location on Island Avenue. Today, the Horton Grand Hotel offers a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the past, while also providing the modern day amenities that independent travelers want.

"Wrought-iron balconies, a central courtyard where you can have after-work drinks under leafy trees—Horton Grand Hotel has an historic elegance to it," said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO, Stash Hotel Rewards. "It's great to walk outside and be in the heart of the Gaslamp restaurant and entertainment district. It's even better to come home to this calm, well-run hotel."

Travelers interested in earning points at Horton Grand Hotel can join Stash for free at www.stashrewards.com. Stash members earn five points for each dollar spent on eligible room rates and can redeem them at nearly 200 unique independent hotels across the U.S. Stash points never expire, and redemption is simple, without blackout dates or category restrictions found in many chain programs. Stash partner hotels also provide members with access to exclusive travel deals.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
