OUR LEADERSHIP

Hospitality isn’t just a business, it’s our business

Columbus Hospitality Management was born in 1998 from a desire to build a company that does the simple things well and lets success follow – a company run by hospitality people who understand business. After more than a decade of business, our core team still puts guests first and goes with its instincts.
