BETHESDA, Md. — Curator Hotel & Resort Collection welcomed 11 member hotels from the Provenance collection, one of Curator’s six founding members. These boutique lifestyle properties span cities across the United States. Curator’s founding members represent a collection of more than 120 independent lifestyle hotels and resorts, with more poised to participate over the coming months.
“As the demand for independent hotels continues to evolve, Provenance is honored to join Curator during a crucial time for the hospitality industry,” said Gordon Sondland, chairman and chief development officer of Provenance. “Each of our hotels has a distinct identity, distilled from the culture within our communities. Curator allows us to maintain that individuality while unlocking valuable resources that enhance efficiencies to maintain our best-in-class service.”
Curator launched in November 2020 as a collection of hand-selected small brands and independent lifestyle hotels and resorts on an owner-centric hospitality platform. Curator Hotel & Resort Collection was formed by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, the largest owner of independent lifestyle hotels in the United States, along with six lifestyle hotel operators including Benchmark Global Hospitality, Davidson Hotels & Resorts, Noble House Hotels & Resorts, Provenance, Springboard Hospitality, and Viceroy Hotels & Resorts.
“Curator is addressing the increasing demand for one-of-a-kind travel experiences, boosting independent hotels’ performance and ultimately lifting the industry as a whole. It has been incredible to see like-minded properties come together for a greater benefit,” said Jennifer Barnwell, president of Curator. “We are delighted to welcome these distinguished hotels, each with their own unique guest experiences, to the Curator collection. We look forward to inviting them to tap into the resources they need to thrive in this unpredictable hospitality landscape.”
Curator’s member hotels have access to best-in-class operating agreements, services, and non-proprietary technology designed to collectively generate significant cost-savings along with access to Curator’s network of industry professionals and operators. The intended result is to give owners and operators more time and resources to invest in guests, drive revenues, and spend less time on vetting and contracting vendors.
