About Hospitality Associates


About Us
  |   Leadership Team   |   Development


Hospitality Associates is a third-generation, family-owned hotel management and development company.  The Wynia family entered the industry in 1959 when Jess Wynia acquired their first hotel.  What began as a single hotel has now become a company with a successful track record of over 75 hotels in ten western states, Alaska and Hawaii.  Our focus is on all-suites, extended stay, boutique and upper-midscale inn & suites hotels.

Currently, Hospitality Associates has projects underway in the best locations in the top growth markets in the country.  These hotels are located in Class-A office and commercial centers, urban villages, lifestyle centers and upscale communities that are on the cutting edge of retail, entertainment and lodging development.

Stability in personnel with excellent service to our guests, as well as to our partners, are hallmarks of the Hospitality Associates leadership team.  Our corporate executives average over 25 years with the company and many of our hotel managers have been a part of our success for a decade or more.  The combined expertise of the staff has produced award-winning and profitable hotels recognized by hotel franchisors as some of the finest hotels in their franchise systems.

We take great pride in building long-standing partnerships that are fair to both sides with a high return on investment.  Our business model emphasizes this by eliminating unnecessary and costly fees used by other development and management companies to inflate their profits at the expense of the partnership.  By not collecting these additional fees and by leaving typical developer’s profit in every project, we drive revenue to the bottom line for the benefit of all partners.  In addition, our commitment to each hotel’s success is evidenced by our personal guarantees of financing.  This approach creates an environment of trust and equality among partners that is further emphasized by our commitment to communication, accountability and performance.

Hospitality Associates continues to be a leader in management, service, training, technology and trends in the industry.  Our ability to adapt to ever-changing market conditions while applying hundreds of years of combined experience and time-honored practices enables Hospitality Associates to create hotels with a high return on investment that are esteemed by our guests, franchisors, lenders and industry peers.  These values matched with our commitment to successful and equal partnerships have created a formula for growth and profitability now and into the future.
