STOCKBRIDGE, MA—The Red Lion Inn here has launched Main Street Hospitality Group, a privately held hotel management company whose initial properties are spread throughout The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
Main Street Hospitality Group (MSHG) owns and operates The Red Lion Inn. It manages the Elm Street Market here; The Porches Inn at Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA; and The Williams Inn in Williamstown, MA. It is set to add a new 45-room property, Hotel on North, in Pittsfield, MA, in May.
The Porches Inn at Mass MoCA is comprised of seven renovated Victorian-era buildings that originally provided housing for the area’s mill workers. It features 47 rooms and suites, a year-round outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, bonfire pit, fitness room and three meetings and events spaces that accommodate groups from two to 50.
MSHG assumed management of The Williams Inn after it was purchased by Williams College, where it is located. The Inn offers 124 rooms, two on-site dining options and four function spaces that can accommodate events from 10 to 25 persons.
MSHG also is developing a new boutique hotel on North St. in downtown Pittsfield. Hotel on North will feature an eclectic mix of furnishings and décor to reflect its heritage as an early 20th century department store. It will include two restaurants, a small media space for groups and two smaller meeting facilities to accommodate group meetings and offer a private space for events.
According to the company, MSHG’s mission is to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences for guests, employees and owners through “a unique approach to hospitality, service and management, and is seeking properties that “are closely tied to their communities and have a strong sense of place.”
