The philosophy of North Point Hospitality is simple. The organization seeks to grow through developing upscale, brand defining, full service and focused service hotels in high barriers to entry markets with top-tier franchise partners such as Hilton and Marriott.

Our growth strategy for success is simple: be in the best markets with the best brands at the best locations. Operationally, our success comes from our belief of taking great care of our associates, who in turn will take great care of our guests.


The mission of North Point Hospitality is as clear and concise today as it was when our company was founded in 1978. Our mission is to reward our stakeholders, our guests, our investors, our associates, our brand partners and those who have entrusted us with the oversight of their assets, through a measured and balanced approach to growth and a commitment to the culture of superior service.


The vision of North Point Hospitality is that our company continues to be recognized as an award winning owner, developer and manager of brand defining hotels in key business markets and leisure destinations. That through a continued divestiture of leisure products, our measured and balanced approach to growth will yield resources that are reinvested in the company for the benefit of our stakeholders. That our guest experience, our culture of superior service and that our associates, at all levels, are provided the leadership, training and autonomy needed to create that culture regardless of hotel location or brand affiliation.
