Baseball certainly ranks high among America’s favorite pastimes. That’s as true for the high-powered world of Major League Baseball as it is for the minor leagues, which are beloved by their hometown fans.
Staten Island, one of New York’s five boroughs, is home to the Staten Island Yankees, the Single A-short season affiliate of the World Champion New York Yankees and part of the venerable New York-Penn League, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year.
Staten Islanders proudly support their home team, and so do we through a marketing partnership with three of our 10 hotels: the Holiday Inn Express Staten Island West, Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn Staten Island. The Holiday Inn Staten Island is scheduled to open this month.
As proud boosters of the Staten Island Yankees, our Holiday Inn Express Staten Island West, Holiday Inn Staten Island and Comfort Inn hotels each are designated the team’s “preferred” hotels.
Certainly, there are business advantages for entering into such a partnership: We get to display our logos and messages on the scoreboard at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, where the team plays, Our ads appear in the team’s PlayBall magazine. And its beloved mascot, Holy Cow, might even show up at one of our hotels to sign autographs.
Beyond all that, we share the core values of teamwork, fair play and the pursuit of excellence. Our Staten Island hotels and the members of our team who operate them embody those values when serving our guests.
