This morning we awoke to another act of horrific violence.
Our heartfelt prayers go out to the victims and their families. We are also sending prayers of gratitude to the Las Vegas Police Department, first responders and the Mandalay Bay Hotel staff who worked quickly to aid those in harm’s way.
Our company has a long relationship with the Mandalay Bay hotel. For years, our managers, their spouses and ourselves have enjoyed the hotel’s gracious hospitality at the Choice Hotels International annual convention.
Though we may be far from Las Vegas, every one of us are diminished by this pointless violence. So as a hospitality company, a nation and a world, we will stand together in this time of tragedy, because it is through community that we bring strength and comfort to the victims of this vicious attack.
