The Hampshire Hospitality Group continues their commitment to outstanding hospitality.
From the beginning the Shumway, Vincunas and O'Leary families believed in the premise "give the customers what they need", and at the same time supported the community in which they lived. Beginning with the 60-room Howard Johnson in 1966, the Hampshire Hospitality Group has been committed to making family, community and hospitality our top priorities.
Our next venture was the 20-room University Lodge in Amherst, followed by a 40-room expansion of the Howard Johnson. Later that same year, we acquired our first property in Northampton with the purchase of the Quality Inn. Originally the Colonial Hilton, it underwent several renovations and name changes, has now been demolished to make way for the next phase of growth.
The 100-room Award Winning, Holiday Inn Express in Hadley was built and our 32-room Autumn Inn was purchased in Northampton. The Country Belle Motel in Hadley was purchased and demolished, and a brand new Econo Lodge took its place. As we grow, the commitment to family has remained, as Hampshire Hospitality Group's next generation continues to grow the company.
In the spring of 2007 the Courtyard by Marriott opened its doors to a beautiful 96-room Colonial Style Hotel, which also features a beautiful Ballroom and a breathtaking courtyard - both available for a variety of events. We define hospitality, not only adding hotel rooms but also top-notch staff that is ready to handle every guest's need. Whether we are rolling out the red carpet for a bus tour or serving a 200-guest wedding, our commitment to service continues, as does our commitment to the community.
