An impressive team of experienced, full-service hoteliers, each of which has a proven track record of hotel and restaurant management is the foundation for Rhaglan Hospitality. Guided by our mission statement, we remain disciplined and diligent in delivering world class results to our associates, customers and owners.
Rhaglan Hospitality LLC is based in Birmingham, Alabama, and was founded by James W. Lewis, Jr. and Joe White. Rhaglan, a name that originated in Wales, connects us to the historic nature and enduring strength of the Rhaglan Castle, a landmark in the United Kingdom located just south of Birmingham, England -- the 'sister' city to Birmingham, Alabama.
Together, Jim and Joe’s experience in development and hotel management totals over $150 million of completed commercial buildings, including numerous core branded hotels totaling over 700 rooms, with direct operations management at the executive level for a portfolio of hotels totaling over $120 million in annual revenue.
Rhaglan Hospitality was given the honor of being designated as an Approved Full Service Operator by Hilton Hotels Worldwide (Hilton Franchise LLC). Rhaglan’s most current development is The Redmont Hotel Birmingham, Curio Collection by Hilton, which reopened in March 2016. Rhaglan was able to strategically execute on the total rehabilitation and repositioning of the historic, 90-year-old Redmont Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama, to the extent of winning a twenty year franchise agreement with Hilton as a Curio Collection Hotel to be managed by the company.
