Lobby at a Hotel Managed by Hotel Equities

Our Hospitality Company

Twenty-nine years ago, Fred Cerrone decided to turn his vision into a reality and establish Hotel Equities. Our Founder and Chairman was a former award-winning hotel general manager in his early 20s, and he used his knowledge of the industry to create a company that served the needs of associates, guests, and investors more efficiently.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. (The Golden Rule)
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Hire an attitude and teach them the business.
Inspect what you expect.
The greatest leaders are the greatest servants.
Wherever you are, be there.
If it were my money, would I spend it?
Nothing happens until somebody sells something.
Guests aren’t always right, but they are always guests.
Having integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking.
Learn from your mistakes.
All people matter to God.
