HOT SPRINGS — The Omni Homestead Resort has altered hours of operation in January.
Effective Monday, Jan. 4, the resort will be open from noon on Thursdays until 3 p.m. on Sundays. For Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, the resort will close at 3 p.m. on Monday.
“This decision was made to protect the long-term viability of the resort by remaining open on a limited basis during our slowest time of the year,” said Lynn Swann, complex director of marketing and communications for Omni Hotels and Resorts. “As the COVID-19 vaccines become more widely available, we anticipate an increase in leisure and group business and a return to normal business operations.”
Swann said the decision to reduce hours of operation at The Homestead was a difficult one.
“COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on our resort, our company and our industry,” she said. “Our top priorities are to operate our resort in an efficient and responsible manner, to manage our cash flow like every other impacted business, and, above all, to protect the health and safety of our guests and associates.”
The Virginian Review has been serving Covington, Clifton Forge, Alleghany County and Bath County since 1914.
