As the Corporate Sales Manager here at the Holiday Inn, I am specifically thankful for the healthy business climate here in West Michigan.  I’ve noticed plenty of local news stories about area businesses that are expanding and hiring additional employees.  My continuing conversations with representatives from area businesses prove to me that there is a growing feeling of hope and optimism regarding the economic future of our area.  Thank you to all the area businesses that have selected the Holiday Inn as their hotel of choice for their company’s visitors!

This year especially I’m thankful to simply be in the position to be thankful, because the ability to give thanks is the enemy of discontent and dissatisfaction.
