A Culture of Accountability

ZMC Hotels operates hotels disbursed across a wide geographic area. Successful performance in markets which can be isolated from close corporate support require strong General Managers. We are proud of the caliber and quality of our localized hotel management teams. We are careful to select smart, independent, experienced and innovative leadership at the hotel level, and we delegate operational authority and responsibility to these powerhouse Managers.

More than just a Hotel Management Company

ZMC Hotels is an active and aggressive hotel developer and investor. With the help of our parent company, we are organizing hotel investments for private investors. We manage the acquisitions and new project developments, as well as the on-going operation of the investment. We have deep development expertise in multiple markets across the United States, and a robust Project Management team with experience in development entitlements, design, and construction.

A Focused Business Strategy

ZMC Hotels has a disciplined and focused hotel investment strategy. Select Service, Extended Stay, and select Private Label Boutique Hotels are our core emphasis. We seek institutional grade brands, unique high barrier markets, or those often overlooked by other larger hotel operators. We believe these types of assets perform better in the long run and entail a business model that is easier to implement cost reductions should revenues falter in an economic downturn. Further, we are on a mission in pursuit of the operational efficiencies and added expertise that comes with an expanding scale of business activity. We enjoy certain synergies with our parent and sister companies which can provide specialized and unique business opportunities for growth.
