Curator Hotel & Resort Collection has added five new member hotels to its growing portfolio. The list of new member hotels includes Inn at the Market, the first non-founding member hotel to join the collection, The Edgewater Hotel from Noble House Hotels & Resorts, and three Provenance properties: The Revolution Hotel, The Bradley and Woodlark.
“Maintaining individuality is incredibly important for independent hotels—it’s what sets us apart,” said Craig Schafer, owner, Inn at the Market. “Before Curator, that independence and individuality often came at the cost of a hotel’s profits, unable to benefit from economies of scale. Learning more about Curator, it was immediately apparent how much time and money owners and operators were saving, working together in cooperative competition. Curator’s operating agreements, services and technology will help us take advantage of every dollar coming in, at a critical moment in time for independent hotels. There’s freedom in knowing that hotels like Inn at the Market can remain independent but benefit from the buying power of a like-minded collective.”
Curator Hotel & Resort Collection takes care of vendor negotiations, executing and managing advantageous portfolio-level agreements so owners can reduce operating costs and boost their bottom lines, the company reports.
“Adding these five properties is a sign of continued growth for Curator, despite an ever-changing hospitality industry landscape,” said Jennifer Barnwell, president, Curator. “When we first launched, our goal was to reach as many independent hotels as possible, giving them an alternative to consolidation and saturation, while simultaneously offering the benefits and support of belonging to a collection of like-minded properties. That goal still remains, and we’re thrilled to be adding to Curator yet again, creating an even broader network of hotels working together to provide unparalleled guest experiences and lift the independent hotel industry as a whole.”
