“We live in such a world today where there is so much noise. I think what makes The Homestead special is when I’m there and I am sitting on whether it be the back lawn, or the front porch, you really can hear nature. I love the fact that it feels like all of the chaos of life is way far away from you.” – Peter Strebel, president Omni Hotels & Resorts . . . #attheomni #omnihomestead #visitvirginia #UnplugVA #loveVA #travel #getaway #instadaily #wanderlust #omnihotels #travelmore #travelgram #instatravel #adventure #explore #instagood #photooftheday #love #nature #vacation #travelphotography #traveling #photography #beautiful #picoftheday #trip #travelblogger #igtravel #tourism #luxury
Businesses everywhere, including hotels, are temporarily closing as COVID-19 continues to make its mark across the nation.
Omni Homestead Resort, a popular getaway destination for Northern Virginians, is among the hotels that are shutting their doors. The Hot Springs resort is temporarily shutting down through Monday, June 1. It initially closed on March 29.
The resort had previously cut employee hours and furloughed some workers. Parent company Omni has also posted a travel advisory for several other properties, which you can find here.
“The global health crisis has hit the hospitality industry swiftly and significantly,” said Omni Hotels & Resorts President Peter Strebel in a recent statement. “Like many hotels, we’ve felt the impact and made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations at The Omni Homestead Resort. Our intent is to reopen the resort as quickly as possible, although we will reassess each week. Our associates are the heart of our business and we’re working diligently to minimize the impact for them. We are thankful for the continued support from our guests and family of associates and know we will weather this storm and come out much stronger.”
