Kayla Orr – General Manager of Hampton Inn Christiansburg/Blacksburg

Hamptonality is contagious! Congratulations to Kayla Orr on becoming a certified Ambassador in March.  For Kayla “Hamponality is… making memories. We do not sell rooms, we make memories.”  She invites others to unleash their strengths.  She says, “The more you know about yourself the more you can lean on your own strengths.  It’s an amazing honor to be chosen from over 2,000 potential candidates.  Not only must the Hotel be in the top 25% of its brand, but each GM must be personally invited to apply.  There have been only 60 Ambassadors added since 2014.  All Hampton Inn Brand Ambassadors are required to attend Ambassador U.  Ambassador U is an exciting program that lets our most vibrant personalities spread their Hampton know-how, dedication, and spirit.  It’s a custom learning experience designed to build passionate Brand Ambassadors equipped with the tools, training, and structure needed to “pay it forward” and inspire personalities to shine.  The Ambassador U program is not a one-time experience,  it’s an ongoing commitment to leadership development and inspiring others.  As long as our Ambassador U alumni are with the brand, they continue to serve as leaders and coaches for their peers.  Once an Ambassador, always an Ambassador.  Kayla will unleash her Hamptonality with her staff and deliver memorable guest experiences.
