The Embassy Row Hotel in Washington, D.C. recently finished at $15 million renovation. Part of this renovation includes a new program to support local charitable organizations through donating a portion of revenue generated in certain spaces. Meetings & Conventions reports: "Through new partnerships with local organizations, the property now is donating portions of its revenue. For instance, the suite on the eighth floor is now the SOME (So Others Might Eat) suite, with 1 percent of its revenue going to that organization, and 25 cents from each special of the day sold at the restaurant also will go to SOME, as will 5 percent of revenue from every continuous break station purchased for meetings."
What do you think of this concept? Would you like to see other hotels adopt similar programs?
