Vice President of Leisure Sales for Preferred Hotel Group Rick Stiffler — the man behind the creation of Preferred Pride (read about his efforts in Passport magazine) — is a true road warrior. He travels nearly 200 days out of the year, visiting member hotels and clients around the globe and supporting fundraisers for various LGBT organizations. Every few weeks, we will check in with Rick to see where he’s headed next (or just returning from!) and get his personal tips and tidbits on where to stay, what to eat, what to see, and much more. Be sure to check in regularly for a glimpse of “the suite life” – AKA what it’s like for Rick on the Road.
