From supporting back to school programs, ESL courses or charitable organizations focused on learning, we are proud to help others make their dreams, hopes and goals become a reality through education.
SustainabilityThe hospitality industry has a considerable impact on the environment due to factors such as water consumption and our use of consumable goods and energy. Embracing sustainability is a business imperative for Atrium Hospitality, as it impacts the experience of our guests, our brand image and cost efficiencies. We take our responsibility as environmental stewards very seriously. Our focus on sustainability has a direct and significant correlation to the lives and health of others around the world.
