Denihan Hospitality, the family-owned full service American hotel management company with head office in New York City, has hired hotel republic to represent the group in the UK MICE and Leisure market.
Kai Schomann, hotel republic’s Managing Director, says:
‘New York is one of the key destinations for UK conference & incentive organisers and hotel republic has valuable experience of the US market. We are delighted to be working with Denihan Hospitality Group and to promote their hotels to our UK MICE clients. The hotels are in the best locations in New York City and have great space for meetings, conferences, incentives and team-building events. Our Leisure Sales Team will also promote the hotels to all UK Tour Operators who use New York City.’
Denihan is a privately-held, full-service hotel management and development company. It owns and/or operates boutique hotels in major urban markets throughout the USA. For over 50 years Denihan has been creating value by acquiring, repositioning, and managing independent assets. The Denihan portfolio includes properties operating as The James (in New York, Chicago, and soon Washington, D.C.) and Affinia Hotels & Suites in New York, as well as independent Manhattan boutique hotels The Benjamin and The Surrey (voted Number 1 hotel in New York City in Travel and Leisure's ‘World's Best’ Awards in 2016, 2017, and 2018).
The portfolio also includes an impressive list of chef-driven restaurants and bars. Denihan’s uniquely guest-centric approach, refined through three generations of Denihan leadership, has made it an industry leader in hospitality, property and restaurant development, as well as hotel operations, management, and marketing.
Collectively, Denihan offers over 15,000sqft of meeting and event space, for meetings of 10 to 200 guests per space. The New York City outdoor spaces are ideal for receptions, dinners, product launches, trunk shows, fashion and small events – set against an unparalleled backdrop of Manhattan’s most spectacular city.
Garine Ferejian-Mayo, Denihan’s Senior V-P for Sales & Marketing and Revenue Management, says: ‘The UK is a very important market and it is essential for our hotel group to have an experienced sales representation office in the UK. We have several amazing hotels in our portfolio and we are keen to host more UK conferences in our hotels. With hotel republic’s help we will also tap into the UK’s Luxury Travel market.’
