There are several ingredients that go into making a community great. Some of the most thought of aspects would be your local government, school districts and the people who live there. Sometimes we often forget about one of the most important pieces, our local businesses.
Local businesses play a huge role in the community. For starters they employ our local residents. Aside from employment, they also contribute to taxes and the over-all esthetics of the region. Having great local businesses will ultimately be an asset to a region.
Living in the Hudson Valley, we have the privilege of having a lot of incredible businesses serving us, and drawing visitors. Homewood Suitesat Stewart Airport is just one of several great businesses that help make our community incredible. What makes Homewood Suites so great? Well it starts as a result of their great leadership.
The team at Homewood is lead by General Manager, Kathy Russo. According to her superiors, “'Kathy puts the energizer bunny to bed at night, and then goes back to work.” Kathy is praised for her excellent performance and leadership, which has sculpted the friendly staff and service-oriented atmosphere, keeping guests coming back, and inspiring glowing feedback about their positive experience.
Recently, Kathy has won the MVP Award by Hilton Hotels. In the latest round of Hilton’s quality assurance assessment, Homewood Suites earned an overall score of 96.6 – a score that once again puts it in the most elite category.
With its central location to Stewart Airport, friendly staff, clean rooms and overall esthetics, Homewood Suites has been a fantastic edition to our community. They make a great first impression for Hudson Valley visitors, which will most definitely get their trip off with a positive start. Businesses should strive to make the same presence in their community as Kathy and her team.
