The Chamber Ambassadors honored La Quinta Inn and Suites by naming them Leading Business of the Week on Monday, February 27.
La Quinta Inn and Suites has been a member of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce for 33 years.
The business has bounced back from a large fire in 2016 and has made it their mission to be better than ever and provide a quality experience for all of their guests.
To do so, La Quinta Inn and Suites offers several amenities that include: a pool, free wi-fi, free breakfast, free parking, a gym area, an airport shuttle, and a new fenced-in dog park.
They have also made several updates to the facility that includes a brand-new lobby, "built from the ground up," according to Rick Olekers, General Manager, updated decor, and the first-ever two-story hotel elevator in Valdosta.
La Quinta Inn and Suites treats its employees like family, providing them with excellent medical benefits, courtesy of the Chamber's Spectrum Benefits program and a positive working environment.
"I have the best team that I have ever had in my hospitality career. We are like a family. Ownership treats each person as they deserve to be treated. Not many owners would have kept their entire staff on payroll for 21 months after the fire until we reopened," said Oelkers.
