Ideas come from everywhere. We ran across an interesting post on the subject of travel and sustainability today. It encourages us all to tap the truly local vibe by supporting local providers of experiences — tours, dining, crafts, outdoors — that truly reflect the nature of the place.
We agree. Sustainability is a broad concept. At its essence, it means balancing the interests of the economy, community, and environment. Our hotel models that concept in everything it does, but this isn’t about us. It’s about how we embrace our community.
If you subscribe to this blog — or our semiweekly newsletter — you know that we try to share information about what’s going on outside our four walls. It gives you a reason to come and spend time in Hood River. You may even stay with us, although we wouldn’t blame you if you stayed somewhere else. We’re not the only game in town, so why should we act like we are?
So what’s the point of all this? We want your feedback on what “local” (i.e. Hood River, White Salmon, Gorge) providers of guest services have left you with particularly strong memories and impressions of this place. Just hit the comment link below this post. And lastly, look for some profiles in coming weeks of people and businesses of which we at the Hood River Hotel are particularly fond. Have a great day.
