PRESIDENT AND CEO, CORNERSTONE HOSPITALITY LLC, selected one of the most influential and powerful business leaders in Virginia’s hospitality sector.

"As an architect, I know nothing about how to operate a hotel. Through Cornerstone Hospitality’s efforts, they have been able to take a property in a tertiary market from 39% occupancy when we opened to 86% last year. We own the market we’re in with regard to both ADR and occupancy."
- Hal Craddock, Craddock Terry Hotel
"Cornerstone Hospitality’s management style is a great match for what we desired. They are present on the property, they put our hotel teams first and they think like owners. These core values match ours and have yielded a more profitable operation since the day they assumed management of our property."
- Christine Yoder, Hampton Inn & Suites
"When we were developing our boutique hotel, we interviewed quite a few well-known boutique hotel firms. We found that that the honest and personal approach they took to developing our property, developing our property culture and services and the time they spent with us to ensure we got it right made all the difference. We perform at our 5th year performance projections in our second year. They really understand smaller hotels and restaurants in smaller markets."
- Bill Smith, Bolling Wilson Hotel
