OCEAN CITY, MD—Executives at Real Hospitality Group (RHG) have expanded the portfolio with the new development projects slated to open in the last quarter of this year. The company has continued its growth trajectory with long-term projects and relationships now resulting in an expansion in New York City and Miami.
The company increased its footprint earlier this year, with additions of new lifestyle brands that included the Hotel Shocard Times Square and a lifestyle boutique hotel project in Manhattan’s Midtown South area. Today, the company is preparing for the opening of eight new projects in New York, Miami and the Mid-Atlantic resort area.
“The investment we made in the early stages of development with our owners on these projects are continuing our commitment to delivering top-quality results for our owner groups,” said Ben Seidel, president and CEO, Real Hospitality Group.
