Stein Collection is dedicated to honoring the Forbes standards and maintaining our culture of excellence to create an unforgettable guest experience. Our legacy began with the completion of the first luxury lodging establishment in Deer Valley, the iconic Stein Eriksen Lodge. Thirty-five years later, Stein Collection has grown to include three additional luxury properties, The Chateaux Deer Valley, The Residences at The Chateaux Deer Valley, and the new Stein Eriksen Residences. All team members across all properties are trained in the same intensive Stein Way training in order to guarantee consistent high standards and service throughout our Collection.
As a long-established icon and ever-growing brand, Stein Collection employs hundreds of hard working, diverse, and exceptional team members year-round. We provide housing for a significant number of our employees and strive to cultivate a rewarding culture of respect and integrity. We have incredible tenure amongst all of our teams. More than 20 team members have been with us for 10 or more years. We attribute staff loyalty to the positive and respectful company culture our executive team fosters. From generous bonuses to regular team member appreciation days, it is a rewarding privilege to work at any Stein Collection property and serve our guests with the same respect and kindness we receive.
Park City is home to over 100 diverse nonprofits that work tirelessly to benefit the people of our town and the greater state of Utah. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be part of such a vibrant, community-oriented town, and consider it our duty to contribute, support, and partake in these extraordinary efforts. Some of the many local charities and organizations we support on an ongoing basis include Youth Sports Alliance, National Ability Center, People’s Health Clinic, Park City Education Foundation, KPCW Radio, Huntsman Cancer Foundation, and the Christian Center Food Bank.
The Stein Collection approach to direct sales combines friendly sales calls with third-party lead generation relationships to expand our networking abilities by market segment. Our team works closely with each hotel to develop, implement, and monitor property-specific action plans which include direct sales, familiarization trips, and marketing initiatives, all designed to leverage the strength of the brand and the specific niches held by any one hotel. We have success in targeting specific opportunities for revenue growth and index penetration by identifying these demand times early. Progress is monitored through traditional matrices while remaining agile in our execution to ensure every opportunity is exploited.
