A Mutually Beneficial Partnership

Ithaka Hospitality Partners was built on the belief that when values align, profitability follows naturally.

We believe in forging long-lasting relationships and long-term commitments with our partners and shareholders. Your success is our success. We aim to grow with you, foregoing the quick “turn ‘n’ burn” option in favor of longevity in a steadfast, mutually beneficial partnership.

When you reach out to Ithaka, we will listen to your unique set of circumstances and goals. We will meet to determine if our values align, which is the bedrock of a successful hospitality partnership. We’ll introduce you to the Ithaka that will grow with you, treating every success, every milestone, with a servant’s spirit and a grateful heart.

We know there is no one-size-fits-all solution within the hospitality industry, which is why we work so closely with our partners and shareholders. We learn about your individual needs and tailor a plan to meet – and then exceed – those needs.
