LBA Hospitality hits 50 years in the industry and 100 Hotels

LBA Hospitality, an Alabama–based hotel management company, announced they have reached two exciting milestones in the company’s history.

They are celebrating 50 years in the industry and with the recent addition of five new third-party management contracts, LBA Hospitality now manages 100 hotels across the Southeast United States and now into the Northeast area of the country.

What are the five additions?

The five new hotels being managed by LBA Hospitality are:

  • TownePlace Suites by Marriott Patuxent River located in Lexington Park, MD
  • TownePlace Suites by Marriott located in Goldsboro, NC
  • Residence Inn by Marriott located in Savannah at the Airport, GA
  • Best Western Plus Arbour Inn & Suites located in Chattanooga, TN
  • Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lookout Mountain located in Chattanooga, TN

Executive take on the milestones

“We have grown by the mantra that we only want to be as big as we can be good. Our focus has always been on taking care of the associates and the guest and growth would happen organically,” said Beau Benton, President, LBA Hospitality.

“We have been fortunate to partner with some great ownership groups and these most recent additions with BPR Properties and Cherry Cove Hospitality are a testament to that.”

“In addition to the milestone of 100 hotels under management, this is also LBA’s 50th year in the hospitality business. I believe that staying grounded in our principles has paved the way for our success and will allow us to continue to grow for the next 50 years.”

At LBA Hospitality, the mantra ascribed many years ago still applies today – “we stand out because of what is inside!” The company culture is what separates LBA from the rest and it starts with its people.

The growth of the company and tenure of the company is being celebrated by the company’s 2,600 associates in 12 states. LBA’s teams are curated with people who love what they do and they hire leaders who honor teamwork and respect each other.

The company is a trusted and respected management team because of its people. LBA Hospitality consistently ranks as one of the top hotel management companies in the country, with affiliations with the top brands including Marriott, Hilton, IHG and Best Western.
