Curator Hotel & Resort Collection has expanded its portfolio with the addition of eight lifestyle hotels and resorts from Davidson Hospitality.
The newest Curator member properties are located in various US leisure destinations including Islamorada and Hollywood, Florida; Mackinac Island, Michigan; Charleston, South Carolina; and Newport, Rhode Island.
The properties are Amara Cay Resort, La Siesta Resort & Marina, 63-room Pelican Cove Resort & Marina and 151-room Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina, Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, Grand Hotel, Hotel Viking and The Ryder.
Curator president Jennifer Barnwell said: “These eight unique hotels and resorts incorporate local flare while also offering the experiences lifestyle guests are seeking.
“Curator’s broad array of services and partnerships will support and enhance Davidson’s creative and detailed operating focus that they are known for in the hotel industry.”
The new member hotels and resorts will benefit from Curator’s support and resources, operating agreements, and non-proprietary technology.
Curator was introduced in November last year. It seeks to improve small brands and independent, lifestyle hotels’ operating performance and profitability.
Davidson Hospitality Group chairman and CEO John Belden said: “Curator’s owner-centric offerings combined with Davidson’s best-in-class management will enhance the profitability and performance of these properties while also enabling new product, service, and technology offerings from the Curator platform.”
Last month, Curator welcomed four new properties and marked its debut in the travel destinations of coastal New Jersey and the Red Rock Country of Arizona.
In July this year, Curator signed an agreement to enable its hotels to contract with Sabre’s suite of hospitality retailing solutions.
