Denihan Hospitality

Entrepreneurially Minded. Results Driven.

Denihan is a premier operator of upscale, luxury, boutique, and lifestyle hotels in North America. Celebrating more than 50 years as a privately-held, hotel management company and long-term owner, we operate each asset with keen insights and discipline that only ownership can bring.

Denihan’s three generations of family leadership and deep team of experienced top-level executives hailing from decades of global hospitality are focused on profitable hotel operation by taking an individualized, tailored approach to managing each asset – the Company understands that each asset and each situation are different.

Denihan operates or licenses hotels and residences under one of its four world-class boutique brands – The James, The Surrey, The Benjamin, and the Affinia Hotel Collection.

The Company also offers its big company experience, small company sensibility to other owners in providing third-party management services to independent and other hard and soft branded hotels.
