A tradition of hospitality

In Louisiana, we use the term, "lagniappe" when talking about anything that involves "a little something extra"... "above and beyond"... "exceeding expectations". Isn't that what hospitality's all about? Delivering more than you promise to satisfy your guests? We think it is, and we believe it's also the fundamental principle upon which strong business relationships are forged.

Dimension has earned a reputation of success by sticking with a few, basic business philosophies:

  • Be affiliated with great brands!
  • Recruit and retain great people!
  • Continuously improve!

It's not complicated. Call it "the basics". But, we've built a winning tradition by:

  • Selecting winning development sites and capitalizing on well-timed acquisition opportunities.
  • Working with a winning combination of industry-leading lenders, architects, contractors, and vendor-partners.
  • Maintaining a geographically diversified portfolio of superior hotel product concepts in markets with upside growth potential.
