John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts works with communities to develop properties based on their needs and the economic climate. Over the course of his impressive 52-year career in the hotel business, Mr. John Q. Hammons has developed 210 hotels.

Beginning as a small franchisee of Holiday Inn Hotels, our company has continuously grown through the development and operation of new properties and previously or currently manage and maintain multiple product types including Embassy Suites, Renaissance Hotels, Homewood Suites, Residence Inn, Courtyard, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Marriott, Hilton, Crowne Plaza, Ramada, Radisson, Sheraton, as well as, a number of non-branded hotels in 16 states.

John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts has maintained construction in times of economic hardship when other developers were forced to reduce or halt development. This perseverance has allowed us to become the first quality hotel in many markets and has also helped us maintain that status.  Today with investments in remodeling, energy and sustainability initiatives in excess of $50 million annually, John Q. Hammons continues to strive to improve the position and performance of its many properties and maintains top hotels in many markets.

While John Q Hammons worked with communities to develop properties based on their needs and the economic climate, our associates brokered creative deals that benefit these individual communities as well as our company based on the instinct and unmatched guidance of our company’s founder. Located largely in capital cities, college towns and near regional conference centers, the hotels continue to maintain steady bookings while enduring market competition from new product and changing demographics.

Over the course of his impressive 52-year career in the hotel business, Mr. John Q. Hammons has developed 210 hotels. He has focused on three simple rules since building his very first property:

1. Ensure the market is there
2. Pick the best site in the market
3. Design the facility to meet the market and location

Mr. Hammons planned each property to feature a stunning atrium, impeccable accommodations and expanded meeting space capable of holding large events and conferences. By strictly adhering to these development principles, John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts fostered the long-term success of each of its properties.
