Leadership Matters

We focus where it counts: on teamwork. Our people are the difference.

The people we work with are our most important asset. They are the sole reason we have sustained a 30-year track-record of success.  From the on-site staff at our various properties, to our management experts in Universal City, we are all committed to delivering superior service to every guest.

From Day 1, every team member is empowered to do whatever it takes to satisfy our guests. Sun Hill Properties’ world-class training program covers all aspects of hospitality service and is considered one of the best in the industry. We take care and treat every guest in a warm, friendly, generous way. Our core values shape how we operate, grow, and prosper. We believe people, not brands, make experiences memorable.

When it comes to selecting properties to manage, our strategy is simple: identify those with the greatest potential for repositioning. Our team knows how to grow market share, unlock hidden asset value, carefully plan renovations, and develop marketing programs that highlight the unique features of the property.

Sun Hill’s investor partners include high net-worth individuals and private equity firms. Many of our investor partners have been with us for over 30 years and have participated in most of our acquisitions.

We also believe in being part of the local communities in which we operate. That’s why we hire local suppliers and support community-based organizations. We’re proud that residents in neighborhoods surrounding our properties dine at our restaurants and use our facilities. We take special care to include localized characteristics whenever possible like décor, cuisine, and activities. Even for business travelers, offering local culture can be a defining point of the experience.

Please contact us to meet our team, or to discuss opportunities you’re considering.

Sincerely,

Mark Davis
