LIFESTYLE + HOTEL GROUP VISION

The synergy of Time, Inc. lifestyle brand power and the hotel culture of Lifestyle + Hotel Group founders is the foundation for the company name and it’s logo. It is not “Lifestyle Hotels” but is in fact “Lifestyle” + “Hotel”. It is the culture of understanding and embracing the desires, the needs, the interests of a particular lifestyle group, whether a Southern Living follower or a Sport Illustrated sports fan, and creating a hotel that embodies the style of the each brand and immersing each hotel guest in a living lifestyle theater that they can actively participate in

ENSURING SEAMLESS MANAGEMENT OF RESERVATIONS AND SALES GENERATION 

To ensure that the hotel brands have a solid, time tested reservation system from Day One LHG has entered into arrangements with Preferred Hotels & Resorts. This affiliation would bring the power of the Preferred Hotels guest loyalty system, the global web site and reservation system, and the national sales force to bear in marketing the hotel. With 50 years of experience Preferred Hotels brings to the organization not only a central reservation system but 35 sales offices throughout the world staffed by 80 dedicated sales directors. The Preferred Hotels brand is a “soft brand” which allows hotels to keep their independent presence, design, and style while being under the umbrella of the Preferred sales and reservation machine.

DEVELOPING HOTELS IN UNIQUE LOCATIONS WITH THE RIGHT BRANDING

LHG has the ability with the four lifestyle hotel brands to not only develop and manage premier products in great locations but to select the best brand to maximize the revenue potentials of a property by marrying the best guest demographics to that particular location. The ability to tailor make a property to reflect the desires and expectations of a specific set of loyal followers provides the company with a critical competitive advantage from the first day of operations.
