- 2010

The new decade brings new opportunities for the large independently-owned and franchised companies that have the experience to generate bottom-line results and the ability to invest during downturns in the economy. The new decade started off with a bang by acquiring partnership in a celebrity-frequented oceanfront resort, the renovation of a downtown historic hotel, and the announcement of a new hotel build.

Partnership in ownership and management of the Sandpearl Resort on Clearwater Beach introduced the marquee resort to the group. The resort has 253 guestrooms and features a spa, two restaurants and a lagoon style pool. In 2010, the resort earned the highest score in the country in its anointment of the AAA Four Diamond Award. The Sandpearl is a proud member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
