- 1990

The 1990’s decade featured an increased partnership with IHG and a growing portfolio of Marriott branded hotels. In this decade, over 10 hotels were built under the flags of Holiday Inn, Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn by Marriott, continuing a legacy of select service hotels and entering a new market demand for better long term stay accommodations. Growth continued in all four regions of the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Canada. More full scale major developments and acquisitions were accomplished, including a major step into independent hotel management and operation.

Affiliates acquired the well-known Hilton Albuquerque, home of the famous AAA Four Diamond Restaurant, The Ranchers Club. The hotel was renovated and re-branded as the Crowne Plaza Albuquerque and still features the award winning restaurant to this day. In 2008, the hotel was the only hotel recipient of the New Mexico Green Zia award for extensive energy conservation commitment.
