“We want to be innovative,” says O’Donnell about his approach to creating unique specials for guests and innovative partnerships. “I’m going to be working with a local roaster. Our VIP travelers that are here often tell us how in-room coffee available at other hotels is not very good. Because of partnerships I’ve developed in the past, I’ve found a roaster down on Washington called Espressions Coffee Roastery. It’s a fantastic roaster! One package we’ll offer is a premium coffee package. Guests will get a 12-oz. bag of heat-sealed premium roasted coffee from Espressions.” A Hampton Inn tumbler and specialty creamers will also be included in that package. Other developments slated for the future at Hampton Inn and Suites Tempe/Phoenix Airport include an evening business wine reception.
At Hampton Inn and Suites Tempe/Phoenix Airport, O’Donnell and the entire team strive to exceed guests expectations… And provide unsurpassed value along the way!
