In 1985, Stephen L. Schwartz established First Hospitality in Chicago with a single hotel and a strategic vision – to create value for all stakeholders through excellence on fundamentals and an openness to doing things differently. Today, this means we create value for our investors, but also opportunity for our associates, comfort for our guests, and trust for our partners.
First Hospitality has carved out a reputation as a forward-thinking hotel developer, investor, and management company. Our passion for harnessing data to plan ahead means we don’t just follow industry trends, we create them.
Over the past 35 years, First Hospitality has successfully invested in nearly 100 hotels throughout the country, created a proprietary hotel management platform, and delivered industry-leading investor returns. We’re still building on our legacy of success and believe in cultivating innovation.
