Our Approach

Our Vision

At Canon Hospitality Management, it is our goal to operate high quality hotels by maintaining the highest guest, employee, and brand satisfaction. We strive to grow our portfolio of hotels by providing strong management of our current hotels, as well as adding value to prospective hotels needing our management skill. In addition to our principals’ asset growth strategy, CHM will focus on adding quality hotels to our portfolio that need strong “hands-on” experienced management. It’s our goal to operate 10 high quality hotel assets within the next 5 years. We will do this by hiring and training additional regional level managers, expanding our centralized office, and identifying under operated hotels.
