IC Hotel Partners
Independent Collection is proud to support the local businesses, organizations and artisans within our communities. Our IC Hotels often feature locally made products in the rooms and dining areas, and we also curate special deals for our guests with many of the local businesses in the neighborhood. We also work directly with the community to give back to our local public schools as well as to nonprofit organizations and charities.
Here are some of the many great partners we worked with in 2019:
ARTCADE AT CADILLAC HOTEL & BEACH CLUB
Guests and Basel goers were invited to a vintage “Artcade” with throwback games to enjoy an immersive experience. All were gifted with a bespoke, limited-edition branded tote personalized by Amanda Perna on site. Cocktails were created and sponsored by Absolut Elyx and bites were custom created by Donna Mare.
THE RITTENHOUSE HOLIDAY SOIRÉE
Wellness tarot card readings by Conjure, Kypris beauty all-natural facials, Rittenhouse hairstylist hair horoscopes.
NATIONAL DOG DAY ACROSS PORTFOLIO
The St. Gregory: Donated a portion of proceeds from their Patio Paw-ty to Paws of Honor, a charity that provides free veterinary care and products for retired military and law enforcement K-9’s. Four-legged attendees were welcomed with Molly Mutt beds and bowls and Capitol Dome dog cookies from local partner, Doggie Style Bakery.
The Rittenhouse: Special amenities and a dog treat stand in the hotel driveway paired with a raffle for a one-night stay at the hotel and a pet dining menu experience with proceeds benefiting Morris Animal Refuge.
EARTHVIEW/WATERBOYS: Waterboys, an initiative of the Chris Long Foundation, provides life-sustaining water sources for communities in East Africa. For each Earthview water bottle sold at our hotels, $1 is donated to Waterboys to help fund wells and provide clean drinking water. The portfolio has contributed thousands of dollars to this initiative, and the first Hersha well is expected to be completed in Tanzania in March 2020.
