San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) September 15, 2015
In partnership with Hawthorn Creative, Valencia Group officially launches its first brand-wide lifestyle publication today. The complimentary magazine, which is now available online, in the company’s 900 guest rooms and numerous hotel public areas, further builds on the special spaces, places and people that have earned international acclaim for Valencia Group and its hotel collection.
According to Amy Trench, Corporate Director of Marketing & Public Relations, “We’ve put the same passion into the look and feel of this magazine as in the design and operation of our hotels. In each issue, we hope to share a sense of place and experience that gives our properties their distinctive feel and appeal.”
Core content will include sections highlighting Neighborhood, such as charming Westport in Kansas City, KS, home of Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza; N/S/E/W, which profiles four points of interest within a short walk of Valencia Group sites, like Winchester Mystery House, five minutes from Hotel Valencia Santana Row in San Jose, CA; Like A Local stories that incorporate what to see and do from a homegrown perspective – in the inaugural issue, Austin, TX art and music insiders sing the praises of venues near Lone Star Court; and The Valencia Experience, which focuses on hotel highlights and updates.
Additional features in the first issue include Street Smart, a showcase of street art in Texas, including San Antonio, TX’s Bill Fitzgibbons, a favorite of the team at Hotel Valencia Riverwalk, and Great Escape that details urban adventure experiences just outside each hotel’s door like kayaking at Terry Hershey Park in Houston, TX, steps from Hotel Sorella CITYCENTRE.
