Sage Hospitality is looking for a leader to be an integral part of the new Perry Lane, a Luxury Collection Hotel, in the historic district of Savannah, Georgia. The hotel will feature 168 guest rooms, a pool, meeting spaces, a rooftop events space and retail and dining options. The hotel’s entrances will give the feel of an airy, southern front porch while the lobby will be reminiscent of a parlor you might find in a Savannah manor. This will include attendants with bar carts who will create a custom cocktail for guests.
As part of Sage Hospitality’s Premier and Lifestyle division, we passionately strive to be the best and create excellence in everything we do. We are known amongst our staff, our owners, our guests and our communities as leaders in our field who are authentic, humble, innovative and flexible operators driven to anticipate needs and exceed expectations.
Founded in 1984, Sage Hospitality set out to be the best hotel owner and operator in the business. We’re talking figuratively, progressively and aggressively breaking the mold of the hospitality industry. As one of the U.S’s top hospitality management, investment and development companies, Sage is on a fast trajectory of growth and performance. Building upon what we do best—establishing some of the best hotels and restaurants in the world. We are headquartered in Denver, Colorado, surrounded by high-performing investments from coast to coast. With the advantage of hands-on experience, we’re also changing the way luxury in the hotel world looks.
