Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Viceroy for Everyone

Every day, we guide travelers to new places and experiences. In order to be authentic hosts, we’re committed to caring for our colleagues and guests, and embracing them for who they are. And we’re dedicated to doing business in a way that everyone feels safe, accepted, and worthy. At Viceroy, everyone —regardless of age, race, size, shape, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and disability — is respected and empowered to be themselves and let their individuality shine. We cherish our differences, it’s what makes us stronger. Our commitment is not just for today or tomorrow, but for the long and meaningful road ahead. No matter what place we all come from, when you take a step back and look at our map, together, we’re on the same journey. Together, we make a difference.


Black History Month

In February, in honor of Black History Month, Viceroy recognizes the achievements of Black pioneers in the hospitality and travel industry. Their lasting impact is celebrated as we share their incredible stories with our colleagues and guests.

We spotlighted individuals such as Joseph Lee, Betty Reid Soskin, and Ben and Virginia Ali - all of who have paved the path for the hospitality industry and changed the world forever.

Pride Month

Every Viceroy hotel was built with love — and for love. Join us throughout June as we go all-out for Pride month, offering everything from drag shows to drink specials. It’s all more than a good time. It’s the definition of inclusivity and embracing who we are all meant to be. We believe that together, we can make a difference. Together, we’re on the same journey. Together, our hearts beat for everyone.

Inclusion at the Workplace

Out & Equal Workplace Advocates

At Viceroy, inclusion in the workplace is paramount. Through our partnership with Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, (O&E), the premier organization working exclusively on LGBTQ+ workplace equality, we will continue to build an environment where our colleagues feel a true belonging at Viceroy. Through O&E’s worldwide programming, their mission is to support organizations to create and sustain cultures of belonging for all. As a partner, Viceroy will participate in LGBTQ+ executive leadership development, comprehensive Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) training and consultation, and will work towards implementing brand standards at our hotels & resorts that foster inclusive and welcoming work environments.

We Are Viceroy


Meet Joshua Washington (and his dog Dyce), Area Sales Manager at Viceroy Santa Monica. Josh talks to us about his natural ability to be a host and how his work environment allows his to be his authentic self - Black American. Gay male. Son. Brother. And Host.


“It’s like magic here.” That’s what Herlinda Elizondo, Room Attendant at Viceroy Chicago, says about the warm environment the hotel has created for its colleagues. It’s inspired her to do her favorite things: sharing laughs with those around her, while simply being her unique self.

Meet Viceroys Inaugural LGBTQ+ Travel Advisory Board

At Viceroy, we’re steadfast in our dedication to championing inclusivity. Here to help us do that: our new LGBTQ+ Travel Advisory Board. Together with our board, we continue to learn and grow so that we can remain an example of what it is to be an authentic host that makes everyone feel safe, accepted and worthy. 

We meet with our board regularly to discuss current objectives, challenges and opportunities for a greater feeling of inclusivity at our hotels and resorts. And we walk away from these conversations knowing exactly how to remain accountable to our guests and colleagues. Our board is our moral compass, ensuring we remain on track to all of our commitments as it relates to our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging initiative, Viceroy for Everyone.

We are honored and proud to serve with the members of our board, all of whom are an essential part of the true spirit of Viceroy.
