Giving back to the community is ingrained in Pillar Hotels & Resorts' company philosophy and encouraged whenever possible. Many of the organizations we support provide food, shelter and assistance to those in need across the country. We are thankful for our wonderful teammates who generously donate their time through volunteer efforts, event partnerships, fundraisers and monetary / in-kind donations.
Pillar Hotels & Resorts was recently presented with the 2014 Marriott Spirit to Serve Award for Community Service, a high honor that recognizes recipients for demonstrating company values through employee volunteerism, donations and various community service initiatives.
