Our rich history

With roots that date back to the end of the Civil War, our company’s heritage is intertwined with the hospitality industry’s dramatic evolution. Behind the strong legacy of Leahy family leadership, we have adapted to changing times and responded to the growing needs and ambitions of our customers. The products, services, capabilities, and family culture that distinguish our company today can be directly traced to the nation’s earliest hotels and their practice of greeting guests with a hotel registration book.
