Today, we are all Bostonians…
TripAdvisor was founded in Needham, MA back in 2000 and is currently headquartered in Newton, MA – just 10 miles outside of Boston. Many of our employees live in the city and surrounding suburbs, but today, we are all Bostonians.
We have all carried heavy hearts with us to the office. Patriots’ Day – a day that always brings friendly competition and celebration for our city – has been marred by truly horrific acts of violence. But the city that we love and its people will persevere. We will mourn for victims, help our neighbors and hug our loved ones. We will continue to celebrate thousands of random acts of kindness and be thankful for the courageousness of public service providers, who put others’ safety above their own every day.
To our friends and guests at The Lenox, Mandarin Oriental, The Fairmont Copley Plaza, The Westin Copley Place, Hotel Commonwealth, the Courtyard Boston Copley Square, and all other Boston hospitality businesses, as well as the many others who have been affected by these tragic events, please know that we are thinking of you.
