WHAT WE BUILD Hospitality

Delivering more than just a hotel

DPR’s hospitality teams build projects large and small, including limited-service, full-service and world-class luxury hotels and resorts. From resorts that are destinations unto themselves to urban high-rises to complex renovations, DPR has earned its reputation as a leading hospitality builder by always viewing our projects through the owner’s eyes.

Your Brand Is a Promise

The hotels we’ve constructed range from unique boutique properties to projects for major brands including Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and more. Our hospitality teams understand the complexity that comes with building and opening a hotel, from nuanced brand standards to specific owner requirements to a flawless guest experience. This knowledge allows us to create accurate master schedules that account for milestones unique to hospitality projects.

What Does This Mean For you?

It means having a partner that shares your goals. We go beyond just delivering a building. It’s about helping our customers make strategic decisions that streamline operations, improve guest experiences and keep the hotel competitive in the market. DPR understands how a hotel opens and operates beyond its construction—it’s what sets us apart from the competition.

A Holistic Approach

At DPR, we go “all in” at the outset of a project, coordinating with stakeholders to avoid delays. We critically analyze each phase of the project—not just construction—and establish scheduling milestones according to our customers' needs. This includes completing model rooms early in the schedule as well as coordinating with consultants for specialties such as food and beverage, kitchen equipment, furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) procurement and installation and, most importantly, operations.

Efficiency and Quality Self-Performing

As a self-performing technical builder, DPR brings a unique ability to deliver multiple scopes of work including concrete structure, framing and drywall, doors and hardware, specialties and FF&E services. Our well-trained self-perform crews help us deliver a higher quality product as well as cost and schedule predictability.

Efficiency and Quality Prefabrication

Prefabrication isn’t right for every project, but as industry leaders, we can help guide customers with recommendations on the best approach to prefabrication. Whether it is exterior skin panels, modular guest rooms or prefabricated structural panelized stud systems, our team of experts focuses on prefabricated solutions. Additionally, our approach prioritizes cost and scheduling predictability, technology, and safety and security, while creating functional, comfortable spaces for owners and their guests.

While we have run into many hurdles getting us to this point, (DPR) has continually taken a pro-active approach to finding solutions and overcoming obstacles. The team assembled is as strong as we have seen working in any market.
