Celebrate Black History Month with the Kensington Hotel!

Hotel Near Ann Arbor
How are you planning on recognizing Black History Month?

This month we wanted to take time to proudly celebrate Black History Month with the heartfelt recognition that it deserves. As we honor the rich tapestry of Black history, we acknowledge the importance of fostering an inclusive environment that values the unique contributions of every individual. Our commitment to diversity extends beyond this designated month, as we strive to create a workplace and guest experience that is welcoming, respectful, and representative of all backgrounds. 

At The Kensington Hotel, diversity is not just a buzzword; it is a fundamental aspect of our identity. We believe in the power of diverse perspectives to drive innovation, creativity, and service excellence in everything we offer. We truly believe that by embracing a variety of voices and experiences, we strengthen our team and enhance the overall guest experience.

We express our gratitude to the Black leaders, trailblazers, and change makers who have played pivotal roles in shaping history. Their contributions inspire us to continue advocating for equality and justice, both within our organization and in the broader community. As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we continually strive to create opportunities for growth and advancement for all members of our team. Through mentorship programs, training initiatives, and open dialogue, we aim to empower our valued team members to reach their full potential. 

This Black History Month, we encourage everyone to take a moment to learn, reflect, and celebrate the diversity that makes our world vibrant and dynamic. Let us stand together in fostering an inclusive environment where every voice is heard, every story is valued, and every person is treated with dignity and respect.

With a toast of champagne, The Kensington Hotel invites you to Eat. Stay. Play.

-Lindsay Randolph, Director of Sales and Marketing
