York, PA Mar 21, 2022
Springwood Hospitality announced today that Justin Shelton is joining the Owner Advisory Council for Home2 Suites by Hilton, part of Hilton’s All-Suites portfolio. Shelton is President of Springwood, an award-winning, York, PA based hotel development and management company, which works exclusively with Hilton and Marriott branded products.
The Owner Advisory Council, hand-selected by Hilton from among the most successful and influential franchisees for each brand, serves an important role guiding and advising Hilton brand teams on strategy and deployment.
Shelton served five years on the Tru by Hilton Owner Advisory Council, starting with that brand’s inception in 2017. Springwood opened two of the first six Tru by Hilton hotels in the world, in Lancaster, PA and in York, PA. Shelton made significant contributions to the direction of that new brand during his tenure on the Council.
Home2 Suites is now the #1 brand in the US hotel industry, with more hotels under construction than any other hotel brand in the country. Springwood affiliates have opened eight Home2 Suites by Hilton hotels in four states over the past six years.
“So far every Home2 Suites we’ve opened has been successful for the brand, for our guests, and for our investors,” says David Hogg, Springwood’s Development Coordinator and founder. “I attribute that success to our team of hotel professionals, led by Justin, who serve our guests every day with professionalism and a warm smile. We’re in the hospitality business, not the hotel business.”
