The New Denihan

Entrepreneurially Minded. Results Driven.

Denihan is a premier owner/operator of boutique/lifestyle hotels. Celebrating more than 50 years as a privately-held, full service hotel management and development company, we own and/or operate boutique hotels in major urban markets throughout the U.S. The company has built a world-class lodging investment platform within the boutique hotel space, creating value by acquiring, repositioning and managing independent hotels.

Based in New York City, the company’s uniquely guest-centric approach, refined through the past half century, has made it an industry leader in hospitality, property and restaurant development, as well as hotel operations, management and marketing.

Opening in 2020, Denihan brings The James brand to Washington D.C.
