Mission Statement

Bridgeton Holdings LLC operates a portfolio of hotels across the continental United States. Based in New York City with offices in San Francisco and St. Louis, it runs its properties under its Walker and Cloverleaf banners, also operating independently labeled and major chain hotels.

Bridgeton's goal is to maximize the operational and financial efficiency of its hotels through a combination of capital investment, revenue management, and economies of scale through its position as a nationwide operator. Most of all, it seeks to achieve that goal and grow its market share by focusing on delivering first-class quality, comfort, and service to its customers, and believes that developing strong talent is absolutely central to that end. In turn, employees enjoy a high level of autonomy at Bridgeton, and have myriad opportunities to grow and develop their careers internally.

A key reason why Bridgeton has been successful in achieving its properties’ inherent potential is its sophisticated sales and marketing operation, with tight integration between individual hotels and the New York City headquarters. Potential applicants would join a nationwide team that is in tune with the latest developments in the hospitality industry, and that always strives to be the industry leader.

Founded in 2009, Bridgeton currently provides management services for 20 plus hotels in 7 states.
