PHD Hotels Inc. was formed in 1998 by Tom Hunt and is headquartered in the Opelika-Auburn area of Alabama. We are a hotel development and management company focused on building quality Hilton and Marriott brand hotels. At PHD Hotels, we take pride in encouraging and caring for our team members as we focus on guest satisfaction – ensuring an exceptional return for those who have entrusted us with their investment. We limit our management to only the properties that we develop in order to provide a “hands on” approach at each hotel. We are able to create value for our investors by developing a top brand, growing the business to a stabilized operating level within a few years and eventually attracting qualified national and regional buyers. PHD Hotels has developed 20 hotels since the company was founded and has since sold 14 of them. Along the way, the company and its individual properties have won numerous top awards within the Hilton and Marriott systems including the Hilton Multi-Brand Developer of the Year, Hilton Garden Inn Owner of the Year and the Marriott TownePlace Suites Diamond Circle Award.
