Aimbridge Hospitality Establishes Aimbridge Aid Nonprofit Foundation to Provide Financial Assistance to Associates During Times of Crisis

USA, Dallas, Texas. April 22, 2020

Aimbridge Hospitality, the world's leading hotel management company, announces it has launched Aimbridge Aid, a charitable foundation with a sole mission to provide financial support for associates and the communities Aimbridge Hospitality serves during times of crisis.

"In times of a natural disaster or crisis, such as the global pandemic we are currently facing, we understand the importance of continuing to support our associates," said Dave Johnson, CEO of Aimbridge Hospitality. "While our immediate priority remains to take care of critical needs of associates impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Aimbridge Aid is a means to quickly care for associates facing hardships from natural disasters in the future, through the generosity of other Aimbridge Hospitality associates and our valued partners."

The foundation will activate assistance programs allowing associates in the U.S. facing catastrophic financial impact to apply for financial assistance with funds distributed through a direct grant or an application process by the Aimbridge Aid committee based on timing and assessment of need.

Aimbridge Aid anticipates raising funds by donations from other Aimbridge Hospitality associates, as well as donations by Aimbridge Hospitality partners and guests. Aimbridge Aid will act as the vehicle to collect and distribute funds to impacted associates.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
