About GL Hospitality Advisors

GL Hospitality Advisors is an independent owner, operator and third-party management 
company operating both limited and select service properties

Keys to our success have been exceeding our guest’s expectations, maintaining high quality hotels, and treating our associates as we expect them to treat our guest. GL Hospitality Advisors’ expertise and services include hotel management operations, accounting, financial reporting, project development, consulting, sales and marketing, design and construction services. We have owned and operated numerous hotels in strategic locations throughout the US.


GL Hospitality Advisors has what we call a 4P approach to operating all of its assets.


We hire the right people to work and run our hotels. We believe people are the greatest asset in any business. The latest technology and equipment cannot replace the need for good quality people in any organization. Our success can only be achieved by exceeding our guest’s expectations, and keeping our owners and associates satisfied.


We insure the product is maintained by insuring all preventative maintenance programs are followed. We re-invest back into the asset so our product stays competitive in its marketplace.


We closely monitor and control costs, and continue to look for new ways to save money to help have a healthy bottom line. Our reputation and success is dependent upon achieving superior results for our clients.


We insure that within our business we have a process and procedure for how we need to operate daily. We develop and implement Standard Operating Procedures for our teams so they have a standard process in each department of the hotel. Our teams follow the same process from hotel to hotel across the portfolio. We believe if the team has a well outlined process that is outlined for them they can be more effective on a daily basis and they don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
