Howard Hospitality is a small hotel management company with big ideas. The foundation of our management style lies in three areas; guest satisfaction, employee welfare and community involvement. Our lofty mission is to make the world a better place. We strive to achieve this through our three points of focus; to bring joy to our guests by fulfilling their needs and helping them make memorable experiences on their travels, by taking care of our employees every day, and by volunteering and creating awareness for local charitable organizations.
