about
A RELATIONSHIP-FIRST MINDSET Since 1985, Concord Hospitality has maintained an unparalleled standard of excellence across all capabilities as hotel developer, owner and operator, providing dedicated hotel management services to both full-service and upscale select-service properties. Together with the non-negotiables of hard work, integrity and transparency, we apply a relationship-first mentality to every project.
city

Each property’s unique atmosphere of character, culture and personality is reflected in every design, management and procurement choice. Our soft brand collection of hotels shares the same advantages of their powerful brand counterparts, but our properties are highly distinguishable by their atmosphere, not just their name. We have approved operator status with Marriott International, Hilton Hotels Corp., Hyatt Hotels Corp., Choice Hotels International and IHG. These partner/brand relationships are built on steadfast relationships, recognizable lifestyle features, and top-quality appointments.
SIMPLY PUT, THERE'S NOTHING IN THE INDUSTRY WE DON'T DO. There’s nothing in our relationships we won’t uphold. It’s been our promise to you since our President and CEO, Mark G. Laport, founded the company in 1985. And it remains true today.
