Vision & Values

Vision

To build the best performing, highest quality select service and extended stay platform in the industry.

Values

  • We are performance-oriented and passionate about hospitality. We operate at the fast pace of a start-up.
  • We know and value the power of personal relationships.
  • We treat everyone with respect, manners, service, and compassion – class combined with a healthy dose of fun.
  • We approach every opportunity with the highest degree of professionalism.
  • We were founded on the premise of humble beginnings with noble aspirations.
  • We are family friendly and recognize that everyone has important responsibilities and priorities outside of the office.

Mission Hill: More Than Just a Name – A Foundation

Mission Hill is the name of an old neighborhood in Boston that was a landing spot for generations, and like so many neighborhoods across the country, was a humble place teeming with pride and full of aspiration. Our name, Mission Hill, represents a personal connection that honors that heritage and is symbolic of the values we embrace as we create opportunities to advance. Members of our team have roots in similar communities forged over time by diverse, hard-working people seeking a better life. With values like grit, ambition, persistence, and integrity, many began their journey to success and independence from places like Mission Hill.

These values not only shape who we are as a growing company but are also reflected in the hospitality industry which often serves as the first rung on the economic ladder for millions of select service hotel employees – where every day, doors are opened for ambitious people seeking to take the first step in their own journey to the American Dream.

ESG

Mission Hill Hospitality is committed to maintaining high standards of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) compliance as an organization and at the hotels we own. We work closely with our local operating partners and hotel staff to drive value through sustainability strategies that elevate energy efficiency, while reducing waste, emissions, and water usage through the use of new technologies and best practices.

In addition, our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion fosters a safe and supportive workplace and destination for everyone regardless of race, gender, nationality, religion or belief.

What we do

We seek to capitalize on the changing nature of select service and extended stay and focus on value-add and development projects in sectors and industries that are in the best position to appreciate given the current market and economic conditions.

Source & Due Diligence
  • We access broad networks to identify proprietary investment opportunities to build a high-quality asset portfolio. Our thorough and detailed process of vetting assets allows us to manage risk and optimize investment returns. Mission Hill focuses on select service properties, in attractive markets where there is potential for value-add.
  • We extract value by achieving the most efficient price point, analyzing the risk profile, and monitoring geographic and economic trends.
  • We comprehensively review cash flows, market studies, and third-party reports.
Performance Optimization
  • We strengthen cash flow by implementing active revenue management and cost savings, bringing innovative capital plans to enhance guest experience and overall property performance. This can be as easy as a simple renovation or as complex as a full repositioning.
Exit
  • We build thoughtful portfolios that benefit next stage investors. Our ability to distinguish both product and industry cycles allows us to optimize hold periods and maximize returns.

Team

We are process-driven entrepreneurs with a passion for finding opportunities and creating value. We have been involved in acquisitions, development and finance throughout our careers.
