Sandpiper Hospitality - a Virginia-based hotel management company that specializes in the extended-stay segment - continues to see strong growth in 2020, enjoying high occupancy levels across its 42 hotels, including the addition of two new South Carolina Candlewood Suites properties last month.

"Our hotels have been performing at occupancy rates well above 80% for months, which is really quite remarkable given the COVID-19 pandemic," said Sandpiper Hospitality President & CEO Jim Darter. "Our extended stay platform has proven itself this year as it has performed at the top of the hospitality spectrum in terms of occupancy and market share. Sandpiper Hospitality is definitely a company that continues to be on the rise - we will be announcing several new third-party management agreements in the next few weeks."

In the past four years, Sandpiper Hospitality has:

  • Grown its portfolio of managed hotels from 17 to 42 opened and managed properties
  • Added more than 3,000 keys across three new brands
  • Grown its staff of service-oriented associates from 120 to nearly 500 associates
  • Expanded its operational reach from six to 12 states and across the entire country

Sandpiper Hospitality is approved by Marriott International, IHG Hotels & Resorts, Choice Hotels and Extended Stay America to manage their select-service and extended stay brands.

"Sandpiper Hospitality is a leader in the lodging industry, particularly in the extended-stay segment, and we are excited to establish a relationship with them following the acquisition of two Candlewood Suites hotels in South Carolina," said Kevin Schramm, Vice President of Development, Mainstream Brands for U.S. & Canada, IHG Hotels & Resorts. "We look forward to more opportunities to grow together as Sandpiper increases its management platform across the country."

In 2021, Sandpiper Hospitality plans to expand into additional market tiers and premium-branded hotels, including new properties in Georgia, North Carolina & Nevada.

Sandpiper has established itself as the recognized leader in extended stay hotel operations in the hotel industry by combining a dedication to delivering genuine hospitality with superior financial returns.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
