About Us



We are Hotelitarians

Here at Valor, our philosophy is simple – we deliver results through a team of genuinely inspired and energetic individuals who love what they do.

We are obsessive about hospitality, we care about our impact on the environment, we take accountability and initiative, we value one another, we listen and we make bold, ambitious and reimagined decisions that differ from the norm. Sound like you?

“Inclusive culture, great communication and a team who value & respect one another.”


We are looking for people who are just obsessive about creating emotional connections and memorable experiences for our guests and colleagues as we are. We hire those who love to come to work each day and who will be a true ambassador to our business and industry.

Our Hotelitarians are real people. We hire those who are authentic and act with honesty, integrity and sincerity. To belong here at Valor, you’ll be known by everyone you meet as kind, respectful, fun and confident.

Work isn’t just work for you. You’ll understand how your role is integral to our success and you’ll be motivated by our purpose.
