Legendary Hotels provides a systematic and disciplined approach to every project we undertake. Our ability to deliver excellence of products and services efficiently, ensures optimum results for our stakeholders.
We understand that today’s hotels are much more than accommodations, they’re a destination for travelers and a beacon in the communities they serve. We offer distinctive boutique properties which embody a unique sense of style reflective of their destinations while sharing our signature sense of understated luxury, timeless sophistication, and warm, gracious service.
The company’s niche is ‘accessible luxury’, for travelers seeking an optimal price/quality balance when selecting accommodations, be it business or pleasure. We envision our hotels as a 21st-century tradition: comfortable, luxurious, yet affordable places that business and leisure travelers return to year after year.
Our hotels actively participate in the communities we serve, enabling a springboard to continued development. The engagement of the community is essential to better establish the hotels’ profile in its own backyard, where a world-class property's reputation is derived.
We take pride in presenting our guests a responsible luxury experience, from organic and biodegradable products to progressive conservation and recycling programs. Water conservation, reclaimed materials, native plants and all-natural amenities are just some of the environmentally conscious elements we’ve embraced.
Legendary Hotels is also committed to providing a rewarding, respectful, and energizing environment for our associates. It is an inclusive culture based on trust, integrity, humility, and passion. Our associates are creative, anticipatory, and possess a sense of urgency. We strongly believe there is a direct correlation between the quality of a guest experience and the supportive relationships the company has with its’ associates.
