Our Story

What we do


When it comes to owning and operating hotels, there’s a hard way and a harder way. That’s where OmShera comes in. We specialize in acquiring, developing, renovating and operating properties and turning them into award-winning market leaders. There’s no secret formula to our success. In fact, our achievements are anchored in an immersive, hands-on approach and an entrepreneurial spirit that dates back decades.

What we do isn’t rocket science. But there is a science behind our skyrocketing performance. It starts with unsurpassed market research. If a community isn’t investing in its small businesses and playing an active role in their success, it’s trending in the wrong direction for us.

We’re constantly scouting geographic markets and forging win/win relationships with the industry’s top franchises. When a can’t-miss opportunity arises, we’re ready with a wealth of intel and a solid understanding of the property and its positioning within the market. But it doesn’t end there. We dig deep, analyzing a property on paper and in person.

And when we find a good fit, we move fast. That’s the benefit of working with a company that brings old-fashioned efficiency and accountability to the table.

million and one, you’re still losing money.”

Our History


It was official: We had been bitten by the hospitality bug.

We bought our first hotel property in Charlotte, North Carolina in early 2000. To say it was in need of a little TLC would be generous. In less than a year, we converted this diamond in the rough into an award-winner, earning both Choice Hotels’ prestigious Gold Award and a TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award. It was official: We had been bitten by the hospitality bug.

Other hotels soon followed. In most cases, OmShera is the sole owner and operator but we’re open to partnership investment opportunities with individuals and companies that share our passion for the hospitality industry.
