The concept for Magnolia Hospitality Group, Inc. began in 1968 when our founder Dr. Alan Swindall opened his first two Holiday Inn properties in Phenix City and Opelika, Alabama. By focusing on the core principles of integrity, professionalism, quality and innovation, Magnolia Hospitality group has grown into a leader in the Hotel industry today. Our properties and leadership have been recognized by our brand partners consistently by earning service awards, renovation awards and most recently, the IHG lifetime achievement award, the Kemmie.
We understand that every owner or investor does not want to operate their asset for a variety of reasons. Our expertise allows the investor peace of mind and the financial results that matter. Our core principles focus primarily on service delivery and we understand the relationship between return on investment and quality and service results. Our leadership team understands industry trends, technological advances, brand resources and most importantly how valuable our associates are in exceeding the guests’ expectations..
Magnolia Hospitality Group understands the associates are the key to our success. Our leadership team has over 100 years of hospitality industry experience and everyone on our executive team has operated hotels at all levels. With that knowledge in mind, we recruit and hire individuals that meet the qualifications and necessary skill set mandated to deliver the service, sales and management expectations that we set.
