About Us

SINA Hospitality
At SINA Hospitality, our success and reputation within the hotel development and management industry are based on this one core statement:

Impeccable Hotels, Exemplary Employees, Unforgettable Experiences

SINA Hospitality is built upon strategic and reliable growth from the ground up. We constantly reinvest in our world-class properties and exemplary employees to deliver an extraordinary experience every time.

Since our inception in 1997, SINA Hospitality has expanded to operate over 2600 guest rooms in 28 premium-branded hotels across the South East. Built on the strong foundation created by our Chairman, we have earned a strong track record of on-time and on-budget developments for world-class hotel brands like Marriott, Hilton, IHG, Best Western, and Carlson collecting multiple industry awards along the way. We have never relied on investors, backed out of a hotel agreement, or abandoned a construction project.
