Community Involvement

SMI Hotel Group willingly accepts its responsibility to give back to the communities in which it does business. Through financial support, the gift of service and time of our team members, and in-kind donations, SMI hotels and their leaders aspire to be responsible corporate citizens.

Additionally, as we want to be good stewards of the environment, all of our Virginia hotels are certified as Virginia Green Lodging properties. Our IHG affiliated properties have adopted the Green Engage program, and our Starwood Hotels utilize the EIAS+ Tool. Both monitor our hotels’ environmental impact and help to reduce each property’s carbon footprint.

Organizations which SMI Hotel Group supports or our properties are members of include:

Children's Miracle Network Delek Tournament for Hope Tyler Down Syndrome Association of Greater Richmond East Texas Symphony Orchestra Feed More Give Kids the World Village Retail Merchants Association Richmond Public Schools Salvation Army Special Olympics Virginia Texas College Tyler Firefighters Cancer Awareness and Relief Effort Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth Virginia Green Lodging Virginia Hospitality and Travel Association
