The Wilshire Grand Hotel opened their doors to the victims of Hurricane Sandy who lost their homes from the devastating storm that hit New Jersey October 29th. The Wilshire Grand Hotel accepted room and product donations to help the unfortunate families who were locally displaced from the horrific storm that claimed lives and left millions without power.
Hotel Management Magazine’s “25 GMS to Watch” - Ed Reagoso waived the usually demanding cancellation fee set forward due to the weather when a customer who was supposed to be in New Jersey for a wedding called to cancel his room reservation. Ed Reagoso said “When I explained we were not charging for the cancellation because we were delighted to have a room become available for a local family that’s been displaced due to Sandy, the customer requested we keep his room reservation for someone in the area that really needed it. Within the next 48 hours, 3 other guests and business partners of the hotel offered to do the exact same thing.”
The Wilshire Grand Hotel offered to match all donations and room reservations that were donated to the hotel for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Word quickly spread through The Wilshire Grand Hotel’s blog and social media pages and within three days, the hotel received money donations and many other goods for neighbors in need.
