The Inn of the Patriots is a stage III expansion with successful lodging, Presidential Culinary Museum and Presidential Service Center.
We are relocating our teams brands, shops and museum to a more robust Washington, DC location for tourism, sales and bookings. We will drive down our sold-out occupancy from 60, to 14 days, or less. We will launch a major TV series on the property.
We seek an existing hotel, or fresh build up, for our Presidential museums, spa, culinary institute, gallery, gift shops and kitchen store. Our current business and marketing plan with deck and executive summary includes pro-forma for a $21m project but can be fitted for other offerings and properties.
