About Our Company

The Company name “Access” was established to indicate to our clients, vendors and employees that we have transparency in all that we do – communication, financial and operational management. We will always remain accessible.

Began in 2005 with an inventive approach to hotel management.  Because each of our founding members has 25+ years experience working with numerous hotel management companies, we knew what worked and what didn’t.  We were and remain uniquely qualified to present our ideas on revenue generation and cost reduction to those who wanted to see true change.
