Heart of the House Tour

The ‘Heart of the House’ tour program allows Members of Congress to get a behind the scenes look at how a hotel in their district operates. The tour is led by the hotel general manager, with a representative from AHLA and support from AHLA state association partners. The key objective is for the Member of Congress to have the opportunity to meet constituents and to learn more about the economic impact of the lodging industry in their district.

Tours can be planned as far in advance as necessary and typically take one hour start to finish with an option to have a small roundtable discussion at the end.
