OCEAN CITY, Md., Sept. 29 – A group of hospitality veterans has established a new hotel management company with a unique approach to managing hotels through total property management. Real Hospitality Group (RHG), established in June 2010 and headquartered in Ocean City, Md., focuses on property management, revenue performance and business development services for hotels, resorts and other similar properties.
RHG’s comprehensive services include revenue management, accounting, human resources, sales and marketing, food and beverage, and risk and safety programs. The group’s principal owners comprise more than 150 years of combined hospitality and travel industry experience and have established a strong and visible presence in key, gateway cites that include New York City and Philadelphia.
Since June 1, within the first 90 days of operation, the company has established solid relationships with a portfolio of 16 hotels, including 2,577 rooms and more than $115 million in revenue, according to partner Ben Seidel.
Additionally, the company has built a relationship with the West Virginia University College of Business and Economics Hospitality & Tourism Program’s Advisory Board.
Seidel said the company was founded on the principles of building straight-forward relationships and implementing systems established to manage assets and motivate associates in the field.
“The Real Hospitality Group team offers a proven track record of growth and success in our industry,” he said. “We believe our unique business model – comprised of responsibility, efficiency, accessibility and loyalty (REAL) – fills a void in the market, and by our immediate growth, I would say it works.” He also credits the portfolio’s owner groups, who sought out the team and continues to support RHG’s approach.
“We have forged great relationships with our client ownership groups thus far,” said Rick Day, partner. “By combining industry experience and an intimate, working knowledge of the business, we have developed an approach, which offers innovation and attention to detail – something our customers have readily embraced during our short time in business.”
The company’s goal is to look forward and set the tone for the future, operating with resources to service the immediate needs of a variety of owners and hotels.
“We operate with full disclosure, valuing the comments, ideas and suggestions of our guests, associates, owners and franchise partners. We value them greatly and refer to them in our business plan as our constituent base,” added Day.
The company has enjoyed swift development and continues to implement steps that will guarantee success for years to come. “The result of our dedication has been rewarding. We have very satisfied clients and through only word of mouth and owner recommendations, we continue to negotiate a number of additional projects,” said Seidel.
RHG is a recognized management company by Starwood, Hilton, Marriott, Wyndham, IHG and Choice Hotels. The company currently manages properties in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Morgantown and Fairmont, W.Va. and in the Lake George, Saratoga Springs area of New York. The portfolio also includes the just opened, state-of-the-art Morgantown Event Center with over 25,000 square feet of exhibit space, the new Wharf, a free standing waterfront restaurant in Morgantown’s growing Wharf District and the Sky Room, the high profile, Manhattan rooftop club overlooking Times Square, New York.
