PAGE -- As summer winds scurry across northern Arizona, the winds of change resurface in Page.
The Navajo Nation via Navajo Nation Hospitality Enterprise has another addition to its line of hotels. As of July 1, the Quality Inn Lake Powell is the newest hotel for the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo Nation Hospitality Enterprise also currently owns the Quality Inn Navajo Nation, Tuba City and the Quality Inn Navajo Nation Capital, Window Rock.
"It is a goal of the Navajo Nation Hospitality Enterprise to continue to contribute to the assets of the Navajo Nation, while encouraging economic development. An equal goal is to provide the customer and the traveling public with safe, clean, comfortable rooms, and delicious dining options while they visit the Navajo Nation. Whether guests are 'Exploring Navajo' or conducting business, we want every one of them to enjoy their experience. The purchase of the Quality Inn Lake Powell, allows the enterprise one more location to achieve these goals," said Managing Agent Cindy Sapp.
She stressed that the Navajo Nation Hospitality Enterprise (NNHE) would like to sincerely thank the lenders on the hotel purchase; Native American Bank and Pam Nesius; and the Navajo Nation Division of Economic Development and Allan Begay, Director; and Mr. Phil Scott, Chief Financial Officer.
"This definitely was a team effort and each individual played an integral part in the purchase," Sapp said.
Carrying the name "Quality," makes people expect high-ranking standards for the mid-scale hotel chain. Choice Hotels International describes Quality Inn as having that "broad appeal for both business and leisure travel, offering a full range of services and amenities designed to appeal to business and leisure travelers alike."
Quality Inn Lake Powell offers such consumer-friendly amenities as a swimming pool and guest laundry. Each guestroom features the signature Quality Sleeper by Serta¨ mattress, high-speed internet access, free local calls, iron, ironing board and hairdryers. And for all the pet-lovers, the Quality Inn Lake Powell has been deemed pet-friendly.
A mix of travelers is expected including leisure travelers to view the sights and cultural wonders of Navajo; corporate travelers to service the needs of the local companies, such as APS and Navajo Generating Station; and government travelers.
