Hands On Hospitality Management -

Chesapeake's specialized expertise, hands-on approach, and business acumen has helped us carve out a defining niche in a competitive industry. An appealing combination of big-firm resources and the flexibility, innovation and personal service of a boutique operation allows Chesapeake Hospitality to provide the economies of scale found in larger operators, while maintaining a professional approach that ensures that every hotel under management receives constant personal oversight from members of the senior management team.
Chesapeake's success can be attributed to a hands-on approach that centers on a commitment to become intimately familiar with the brands we serve, the properties we manage, and the markets we work in. Whether it is analyzing revenue management strategies or understanding the contours of the landscape of the local marketplace, the professionals at Chesapeake Hospitality understand that successful hotel management begins not in the boardroom; but on site and in the field.
It is a foundational professional philosophy that reflects the firm's rich heritage, strong leadership and influential founding values.

History & Heritage -

When Edgar and Jeanette Sims opened the 12-room Royal Pine Motel in College Park, Maryland in 1957, the family was writing the first chapter in what has become a classic American success story. Those modest beginnings would mark the beginning of a trajectory that would ultimately transform a small family business into something special. Today, more than 57 years later, Chesapeake has become one of the most prestigious and respected hotel management firms in the industry. The Sims' sons literally grew up in the business and today remain at the helm of a senior management team that has operated successfully together for more than 29 years.
The evolution from a single motel to a dynamic multi-property hotel management company, has been paved with successful milestones. In 2004, the company pooled its assets and went public as MHI Hospitality Corporation. In early 2010, as part of a renewed strategic commitment to leveraging its third-party management expertise and expanding its managed portfolio, the company formally changed its name to Chesapeake Hospitality. Today, the privately held firm continues to work to identify hotel and resort management opportunities that can benefit from the company's established expertise in hotel management operations.
