“People never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou’s famous statement serves as a rallying cry throughout Columbia Hospitality and fuels our collective drive — and success. Our people are our purpose, and our brand is our people. We seek extraordinary individuals who drive our brand promise of Creating Exceptional Experiences. We are a people-first organization, ignited from the inside to succeed on the outside. We are a tight-knit, inclusive, values-driven team, and we trust one another to have each other’s backs. We show up every day with open hearts, an inclusive mindset and a genuine respect for those around us. We have fun, grow together and strive to leave a positive, lasting impression on everyone we meet.
