Spreading the Joie

This year, Joie de Vivre celebrates its 30th birthday. It’s been 30 fun-filled years of excitement for this quirky hotel brand that calls San Francisco its birthplace, and to celebrate all those years of inspiring wanderlust, serving up joy to guests from around the world, and opening spirited boutique properties across the country, we’re honoring the most important part of the hotel experience equation: our guests!

To thank our dear guests (who we like to think of as friends), we’re cranking up the “surprise and delight” factor, offering spontaneous upgrades, amenities (like champagne delivery!) and other unexpected perks to say thank you for your patronage and support, because it’s been a great 30 years for us and we’d be celebrating alone if it wasn’t for you. Just this year we saw the opening of Hotel 50 Bowery in Manhattan – the brand’s entrée into New York – which celebrates Chinatown’s past, present, and future; the recent re-opening of the historic Talbott Hotel, our second property in Chicago; and several notable renovations at some of the brand’s most beloved properties throughout San Francisco (think Hotel Kabuki, Galleria Park and The Laurel Inn). We’d certainly say that calls for a celebration!

Of course we want to keep the fun flowing, so we’re encouraging those lucky guests to share the “joie” by following the brand on social media at @jdvhotels and capturing the moment using the #30DaysofJoie hashtag for the chance to win a two-night stay at a Joie de Vivre property of their choice. Not a guest during the month of November? No problem. Share your own moments of “joie” on your social channels with the #30DaysofJoie and you’ll get the chance to win, too! 

So, pardon us if you hear the birthday song echoing down our hallways this month: we’re pretty happy to be celebrating this occasion, and with you – our beloved guests, nonetheless.
