Our story is one of traditions, old and new, that dates back to 1989 when a small town, mid-west gal fell in love with Hospitality. Fast forward to today, which has blessed me with an amazing career of 30+ years, in the Hospitality Industry, working myself up the corporate ladder from Guest Service Agent to Vice President - Hilton Worldwide Franchise Brand Development, Founder + President of a 15+ year, independent franchise hotel development + management company, and now bridging that passion with luxury residential real estate, as Founder + CEO of everything HOSPITALITY.
Those who have come to know me over the years, know that it was never a “job” or a “business” to me. Instead, it is a genuine passion, that has me wake up every morning, excited by the opportunity to bring a smile to someone’s face, fill their belly or warm their heart with a great cup of coffee or a great meal from the kitchen, or lift their spirit with a kind word or sagely advice. My work allows me to do what I love in the way of travel and real estate development and like all of you, nothing beats coming home at the end of the day to your personal space and oasis.
Collaborating and developing beautiful hotels and spaces, that have hosted millions of travelers, year after year, as they do business, take family vacations, and celebrate life’s special occasions has continued to kindle my spirit and our footprint. everything HOSPITALITY was borne from the spirit and essence from each, and every travel adventure, culinary flavor, local culture, and amazing human beings I have had the opportunity to meet and engage with along the way. Our mission is to deliver that same inspiration, quality and personalized experience through every project, transaction, furniture and Decor collection, collaboration and engagement you have with us.
I have long been inspired by the following quote from Lawrence Pearsall Jacks:
Dawn M. Berry
Founder + CEO
“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence at whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing.
To them, they are always doing both.”
~ Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
It is from that perspective and passion that I, along with an amazingly talented, creative and collaborative team of human beings, recognized as authorities, in all that we do, are having fun, working hard, and are excited to be bridging Hotels + Home as we source, curate, collaborate and deliver, to you, the best of all things Real Estate + Hospitality + Development + Design + Distinct Furnishings.
Come on in, kick off your shoes, stay a while and get to know us.
We’re glad you’re here.
