Officials of PM Hospitality Strategies (PMHS) was selected to operate two of the first Canopy by Hilton hotels. Located in Portland, Ore., (The Pearl District) and Rockville, Md., (Bethesda North - Pike and Rose) both hotels will be developed by The Buccini/Pollin Group, a privately held, full-service real estate acquisition, development and management company. Hilton Worldwide recently launched the new lifestyle brand with the announcement that 11 hotels were in the development pipeline.
“Our experience with lifestyle brands and familiarity with Hilton make us uniquely qualified to be among the first operators of this newly minted brand,” said Joseph Bojanowski, president of PMHS. “From the first 150-room Embassy Suites prototype to our numerous aloft hotels, PMHS has demonstrated its ability to add meaningful improvements to well respected, specialty hotel brands.”
The upper upscale brand is defined by four essential elements: great neighborhoods; comfort & design; more included value; and a “positively yours” culture.
