Hotel Development

North Star Lodging & Development has developed a number of custom, ground-up Marriott hotels across the Eastern United States since its inception in 2015. From pre-development to grand opening, we oversee every step to bring you outstanding results. Our smaller size affords us greater flexibility and speed in decision-making and communication.

Development from the Ground Up

Bringing a hotel project from conception to life is the focus of North Star Lodging & Development.

We plan and construct custom hotel properties in urban and suburban areas using an extensive network of trusted design consultants and general contractors. We partner with some of the lodging industry’s most well-known brands to deliver exceptional and uniquely designed hotels. We understand the importance of each step in the development process and work together with our consultants and contractors to ensure high-quality and efficient results.

Achieving Our Goals

How We’ll Do It

Having an efficient, results-oriented team is crucial to our hotel management services. We accomplish that by doing the following:

• We hire and train the best in the industry at the property level. Talented general managers, sales managers, and department managers play vital roles in our company. We also develop rising industry professionals for future growth.
• We deploy our team where needed. The multifaceted roles of our dedicated management team translate into proven results.
• We build a foundation that can support future growth through a combination of our core management and third-party technological resources.

How We’ve Done It (Case Study)

COVID-19 upended our industry, but we didn’t falter. Here are the solutions that enabled us to succeed:

• We immediately implemented effective cost-cutting measures in all departments, including payroll, purchasing, and energy and resource management.
• We deployed Marriott’s comprehensive “Commitment to Clean” plan. This plan and our company directives enhanced our cleaning protocols, adjusted guest service offerings, and retooled our sales and marketing strategies.
• We identified critical opportunities for hotels to bolster hotel occupancy and worked tirelessly to secure business (i.e., Pitt Students, WNBA Group).
• All hotels in our portfolio maintained profitability for the year through the pandemic by repivoting each hotel’s focus.

Where We Can Go

Our industry is evolving, and so are we.

• We’ve navigated downturns in the past. Our experience allows us to rise to the challenge and meet the opportunities in these unprecedented times.
• Our core focus—managing a diverse portfolio of hotels that deliver excellent returns—will not change. However, our strategies to achieve this goal will continue to evolve as we grow and adapt to the industry’s new challenges.
• Our commitment to our associates, guests, investors, and community members ensures we are accountable at every level.
