For every aspect of a guest’s experience to operate smoothly, HRI Lodging has to as well. This is where Larry Daniels excels. As the company’s vice president of operations, he directly oversees half of HRI’s portfolio of branded hotels, ensuring they deliver great experiences day in and day out. Larry joined HRI in 2011 as general manager of the Chateau Bourbon Hotel. Soon after, he led the property through a $20 million renovation and conversion to the AAA four diamond Hyatt French Quarter. In 2013, he was promoted to vice president and general manager, overseeing assets HRI owned with investment group Carey Watermark, Inc. Prior to HRI, he spent more than 30 years with Hyatt Hotels, experience that’s proven invaluable in running the best branded hotels in the business.
