CONTINENTAL - great expanse / broad reach / North America

HOSPITALITY - warm / unique / experiences

GROUP - many people to achieve our goals


The hospitality industry comprises lodging, dining, meeting and social events, entertainment, culture, experiences, and memories. It is a growing sector that requires an understanding of both real estate fundamentals and a dynamic operating business.

At CHG, we invest in people and places to provide first-class hospitality in high-quality buildings and desirable locations that add to the fabric of the communities in which they exist. 

We don't manage our hotels. Not because it's not important, but because this approach keeps us focused on the real estate. We prefer to build, maintain, and grow strategic relationships with leading operators in the business.

Financial success is a desired outcome of selecting premium opportunities; building with high-quality craftmanship; carefully stewarding capital, properties, people, and relationships; and, always doing business with high integrity.

  1. You're never wrong to do the right thing.
    Mark Twain
  2. Integrity, Integrity, Integrity.
  3. Relationships matter, a lot.
  4. People first.
  5. Alignment of interest. Not just a cliche but a requirement in a successful investment.
  6. Attractive risk-adjusted investment returns are achievable in all cycles. Achieving them not only requires saying "no" to certain opportunities but also saying "yes" when we mean it - then letting our actions speak louder than our words.
  7. The hospitality industry is a growth business. The ever-growing demand to travel and experience places, people, and cultures shapes hospitality around the globe. We focus on this and macro + micro conditions when assessing the strengths and risks of opportunities. This approach enables significant value to be created in hospitality.
  8. Like leaders, successful hospitality investments are made and not born.
  9. You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.
    Yogi Berra
