Hotel Owners & Investors


Focus Hospitality Services has an excellent track record in the management of focused and full service hotels since 1986. We pride ourselves in our strong operational expertise that delivers solid net operating income. Our capital improvement program maintains hotels in pristine condition and enhances the value of the real estate assets for our owners and investors.

We have solid experience as operators of distressed properties for lenders and institutions through court appointed receiverships and direct lender relationships. Our management team moves quickly to secure the hotel, establish financial controls and create value that enables the lender to better dispose of or more profitably manage the property. We renegotiate or terminate contracts with vendors as required, handle any special licensing issues with governmental entities and franchisers and make common sense business decisions to benefit the asset. We also prepare all reports to lending institutions and the courts.

Our business development department, headed by President Dean Morgan, is dedicated to securing management contracts, new development projects, existing hotel acquisitions and establishing new investor relationships. We are experienced in devising innovative solutions that make essential development projects feasible, often at a lower total cost than previously thought possible. We accomplish this by using creative financing structures of bonds, government support, TIF monies and other financing methods not commonly employed by most real estate development firms.

Focus has developed over $100 million in commercial and residential ventures and currently manages a portfolio of 20 hotels, office space and raw land. We have a portfolio of $200 million of committed projects to be developed over the next five years including focused service hotels, full service hotels, convention centers, museums and indoor/outdoor water parks. Through our excellent reputation we have developed extensive relationships in the public and private sectors which have delivered these development opportunities.

Focus has been awarded numerous awards for their operational expertise and community involvement. Focus Development, Inc. was named 2004 Developer of the Year by the Intercontinental Hotels Group. Individual hotels have repeatedly won Quality Excellence Awards, Golden Pineapple Awards, Community Improvement Awards and recognition of charitable contributions throughout the communities we serve and collectively through our corporate organization. Charities include United Way, Junior Achievement, American Cancer Society, Give Kids the World, March of Dimes and many others. Our principals, corporate staff, hotel managers and hotel staffs support numerous community, educational, not-for-profit and tourism industry organizations with literally hundreds of hours of voluntary time and extensive monetary contributions. We are involved in the communities we serve.
