The Art of Hospitality

Denihan is a premier operator of upscale, luxury, boutique, and lifestyle hotels in North America. Celebrating more than 50 years as a privately-held, hotel management company and long-term owner, we operate each asset with keen insights and discipline that only ownership can bring.

Denihan’s three generations of family leadership and deep team of experienced top-level executives hailing from decades of global hospitality are focused on profitable hotel operation by taking an individualized, tailored approach to managing each asset – the Company understands that each asset and each situation are different.

Denihan operates or licenses hotels and residences under one of its four world-class boutique brands – The James, The Surrey, The Benjamin, and the Affinia Hotels & Suites.

The Company also offers its big company experience, small company sensibility to other owners in providing third-party management services to independent and other hard and soft branded hotels.

About Denihan

Denihan has a rich history that is only possible from a century-old, fourth generation family business. Founded by Irish immigrant B.J. Denihan in 1915 as an exclusive dry cleaning business on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Denihan began to diversify in the late 1950s, acquiring and building New York City ‘apartment hotels’ and becoming one of the earliest U.S. owners and operators of boutique and extended stay properties. Read more about the company’s fascinating history, its current leadership and how it has evolved into one of the nation’s premiere players in the boutique hospitality sector.
