We are very proud of what we have accomplished so far during this pandemic!

Are Executives of Oil & Drilling Companies Welcome at our Hotels?
Somebody recently suggested that we should do background checks on our guests to make sure that they are aligned with our values in terms of environmental conservation and community development.
