While January saw a great deal of reflection on a record-breaking 2019, February shifted our focus toward ensuring that 2020 is our biggest year yet. In the latest installment of The Monthly Rewind, we highlight the moments that made the month as inspirational as it was direction-defining.
To say February flew by is quite the understatement. It was here one second and gone the next.
On February 7th, we welcomed the newest member of the My Place Family to our hotel lineup with the opening of our 54th hotel in Shakopee, Minnesota. The opening of Shakopee’s newest hotel also marked our brand’s 25th state debut.
Days later, the My Place HQ Team had the opportunity to celebrate our hometown community of Aberdeen, SD at the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce’s 2020 Community Champions Award luncheon.
The HQ Team had a great time connecting with other local businesses while celebrating the city of Aberdeen!
Before we knew it, February was halfway over, but the month’s excitement was just heating up as we announced the Groundbreaking of Washington’s latest My Place Hotel in Vancouver on February 14th! (a special Valentine’s treat)
With three locations already open in the state of Washington and another one under construction in Wenatchee, we’re growing faster than ever in the Pacific Northwest.
As we continued to trek through the cold days of February, we had the opportunity to reunite with our partners at Cendyn who visited My Place HQ February 18-19.
The following weekend, many members of the HQ Team made their way to Palm Springs, CA for the 2020 Owners Summit February 24-25.
The team had a delightful time reuniting with our valued hotel owners from coast to coast in one place and time – the first time since My Place Convention 2019.
While there, the team had the opportunity to gather feedback and identify new ways to make our splash in 2020 even larger.
While the HQ Team was in California, we also announced the Grand Opening of My Place Hotel-Shakopee, MN, set to take place on Thursday, April 9th!
As the HQ Team returned to Aberdeen refreshed and revitalized from the Owners Summit, we officially closed out February with one more announcement as we shared the news that our first hotel in the state of Ohio was set to break ground in Marion on April 9th!
While March is already off to a bold start, we are extremely thrilled to make our way through the busy month ahead of us.
Here are some things to look forward to in March:
- The 2020 Big Sky Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships presented by My Place Hotels March 9-14
- The Groundbreaking of My Place Hotel-Vancouver, WA on March 10
