Montreal Airport Hotel Makes a Positive Difference Within Its Community

From Raising Funds to Raising Roofs, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Montreal Airport Is Working to Shelter More Than Just Its Guests

MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - It would be easy for a hotel to exercise a sort of tunnel vision when it comes to its goals. Excellent customer service, comfortable accommodations, the perks that keep guests coming back -- there are plenty of things to occupy the efforts of any staff. Yet the team at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Montreal Airport takes its commitments to the next level. Not only do staff members work hard to cater to their guests, they also work hard to make their community better for those who fly in to visit and those who live there every day.

The most recent example of this ongoing commitment was the hotel's very first fundraiser on October 30, 2013. As an impressive example for other hotels near the Montreal airport, this property welcomed more than 60 attendees to a fall tasting that benefitted Habitat for Humanity Montreal. Participants were greeted with a fall-inspired welcome cocktail and the opportunity to taste locally-brewed, organic beer by Le Castor while trying their luck at the raffle. Each guest's $20 CAD ticket also secured him/her the chance to win a stay at a premier property in Quebec or Ontario.

Just as guests of these Montreal airport suites enjoy a pleasant stay, participants of the hotel's fundraiser enjoyed a memorable evening. Even better, all the sipping, tasting and winning led to over $2,200 CAD in donations for Habitat for Humanity. But the hotel is far from done. With donations continuing to pour in, the property hopes to contribute $5,000 CAD by August 2014 when 12 of its associates will head to a building site and lend a hand to the Habitat for Humanity team.

Habitat for Humanity Canada is a nonprofit organisation that works to build basic housing for low-income families in its neighborhoods. By providing access to homeownership, it strives to break the cycle of poverty.

That goal may seem a world away from the comfortable accommodations of this Montreal airport hotel, where guests enjoy well-appointed rooms and suites along with complimentary breakfast each morning, but the property's staff sees things differently. As its associates work to make their community more vibrant, travellers, whether they stay at these suites near the Montreal airport or someplace else, experience a better visit to the city. And that is exactly what the staff works to achieve, whether onsite or on a building site.
