Comfort Suites Soft Opening

(01/14/2016) January 12th 2016 was a day of celebration for HDG Hotels. We held our soft opening for our brand new Comfort Suites in Dunnellon, Florida.We were able to give tours of our beautiful location that is coming together perfectly. Our Comfort Suites is a 71 unit eco-friendly, all suites hotel. Why build a hotel in Dunnellon, Florida? Well, we have seen the charm it holds. We believe in helping other small businesses grow and what better way than to add a fantastic place for our travelers to rest their head at night? This hotel will create 91 jobs for those in the area. It will also increase the regional output by $11,400, and increase the earnings by an estimated $3,340,000. At the soft opening we had the privilege to have Mr. Steve Joyce, President and CEO of Choice Hotels not only attend but share his thoughts about our company and where we are going in the future. HDG also had the honor to have Mayor Whitt share his excitement about the opportunity that our Comfort Suites will bring to the community.   Come mid-February 2016 Dunnellon will be hopping with new and returning tourists! Click HERE to see more photos of our soft opening.

HDG RETREAT

(12/15/2015) ​December 12th 2015 marks the first ever HDG retreat. This was a chance for all eleven hotels to join together for some friendly competition. We met midday to see who was going to walk away champion of HDG Hotels. Each hotel had to endure four different relay races. The races consisted of Hoola Hoop Worm Relay, Pipe Line Relay, Frisbee Relay, and Water Balloon Toss Relay. The winner of each race then battled in the finals to see who would triumph over all. Holiday Inn Express in Inverness took home the 1st place ribbon and trophy with enthusiasm and excitement. They walked in confident, and committed, and left a champion. Once we discovered the winner, we decided to have one more challenge before dinner. We played Tug O War. This event was competitive and fun. There were hotels teaming up to battle others out of pure joy, laughter, and the desire to win just one more time. After all the festivities were done, there was an opportunity to join together as a family to end the night out eating some delicious food. There were hundreds of hot dogs, burgers, chicken breasts, as well as baked beans and cookies for dessert. As music, talking, and laughter filled the air, it was clear that this was not just one hotel talking to only those they knew, but a company full of different branches uniting for the same cause. Even though there was only one 1st place winner, we tend to think that each hotel walked away a titleholder. Whether the team was from a Holiday Inn Express, a Comfort Inn, a Quality Inn, a Sleep Inn, Hampton Inn, or Howard Johnson they have the opportunity to stand boldly and partake in the privilege of being a part of HDG Hotels. We look forward with anticipation for next year’s retreat!

Orlando Sentinel - Joint Employer Standard...

(12/15/2015) Dec. 5, 2015Guest Column by Azim SajuI recently traveled to Washington to discuss a development that would result in a dramatically negative impact to the small-businesses community throughout Florida. The National Labor Relations Board just ruled in a landmark case that a company is now considered a "joint employer" when it uses specialized services and administers any level of indirect control over contracted employees.In other words, if my company — HDG Hotels in North Central Florida — hires a custodial service to clean our facility, or security guards to safeguard our business after-hours, HDG could now be held liable for the vendor's labor practices. A new piece of legislation, the Protecting Local Business Opportunity Act, would reverse this harmful decision and help small business owners like me keep growing and creating jobs.HDG Hotels is a family owned and locally run business with 12 hotels in North Central Florida and about 300 of its own employees. We work hard to maintain personal relationships with our employees. We value the ability to make localized and individualized decisions. We provide development and educational opportunities for our employees. In fact, 60 percent of our company's leadership started as housekeepers and have worked their way up within our company.The NLRB's decision would move our modern, 21st-century workplace backward.As a small-business owner, I appreciate the flexibility to focus on what I do best and broker relationships with vendors and contractors that can provide my business with clear expertise to accomplish our goals. In light of the NLRB's decision, the livelihood of my employees is now exposed to a host of restrictions that threaten the balance of my business goals and work force.Small businesses are true job creators in this country. With 28 million small businesses across America, our policymakers should work to create an environment that helps us expand. We need to ensure that any policy coming out of Washington will bolster the opportunities in front of us to create jobs and build economic prosperity.The NLRB's misguided joint employer ruling does the opposite.I urge Florida Sen. Bill Nelson, as well as our delegation in the House, to step forward and pass legislation to undo the NLRB's ruling, or pursue other options through the year-end spending package to prevent the federal government from enforcing this NLRB decision.We must restore the critical flexibility and freedom businesses have come to appreciate in today's modern workplace.
