Spirit of Hampton Winner Amanda of Hampton Inn & Suites Rochester North, MN, Unleashes Hamptonality For Guests and Bears!

Congratulations to Spirit of Hampton winner, Amanda, of Hampton Inn & Suites Rochester North, MN, who showed that Hamptonality isn’t just for guests and teammates—it’s for Teddy bears, too!

A young girl tagged along on her sister’s basketball tournament trip—but left her favorite “can’t sleep without” teddy bear at the hotel. Amanda took the call from the frantic parent, and when she found Teddy, she got creative. She made sure Teddy had the best Hamptonality experience before heading home. Amanda took a series of adorable pictures featuring Teddy having fun at the hotel, including eating breakfast and helping at the Front Desk. She emailed the pictures to the family with a note that Teddy was heading home via FedEx. The girl was so excited, and the basketball team will definitely return for future stays. Amanda, thank you for being a Moment Maker!
