Hotel Management Company History

In 1958, William J. Boykin began BMC’s management venture with a Howard Johnson’s Motor Lodge in South Bend, Indiana, which led to the company developing and operating other Howard Johnson’s Motor Lodges in Illinois, Texas and Pennsylvania.

In 1968, Marriott selected BMC as one of its first franchisees, which stimulated the company’s growth alongside one of the nation’s fastest growing hotel chains — an industry-leading growth rate that continued for the next twenty years.

Throughout the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s, BMC expanded its relationships with other leading organizations including Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Radisson and Crowne Plaza to accelerate growth into new markets across the United States. Over the years, BMC has served pension funds, insurance companies, REITs, commercial banks, individual investors and partnerships in the management of their hospitality assets.

As a company recognized for its excellence in delivering superior financial results, BMC has made significant investments supporting three core competencies around what we refer to as the “three legs of the stool.” These include superior financial reporting and information systems, highly focused and effective sales support and revenue generation and superior human resource functions.

Originally an operator of branded franchises or commercial hotels, BMC evolved into a diversified operator of hotels, resorts and conference centers. In addition to the stable of brands, BMC also has operated numerous independent resorts and commercial hotels, including The Alexander Oceanfront Resort in Miami, Pink Shell Resort and Marina, Oceanpoint Doubletree, The Sanderling Inn, Atwood Lake Resort and Lodge and French Lick Springs Resort.

It is our philosophy and commitment to provide each owner with the attention and individual service required to reach their objectives and to deliver profits and value creation that makes a “Noticeable Difference.”
