Scott Somerville, Jim Petrone, and Scott Perry are pleased to announce the formation of Renascent Hospitality LLC. The new company will be headquartered in Columbus, Ohio and is anchored by the collective fifty-two years of hotel management experience among Mr. Somerville, Mr. Petrone, and Mr. Perry. Renascent will focus on hotel management for third-party owners and development of new and existing hotel projects. Renascent hopes to draw on experience but bring the dawn of a new day in hotel management.
Renascent’s initial management contracts are three hotels owned by third-party groups: a 137-room Doubletree Guest Suites property in Dayton/Miamisburg, Ohio, a 64-room Country Inn and Suites in Waterloo, Iowa, and a 64-room Country Inn and Suites in Cedar Falls, IA. The Doubletree Guest Suites is currently completing a full renovation.
Because of the principals’ successful track record and experience, Renascent Hospitality is proud to be associated with several brands including Hilton, Starwood, Wyndham, and Intercontinental Hotel Group. Somerville commented, “we couldn’t be more excited about the many prospects and the team that we have put together to manage successful hotels for our clients.”
