“We’re excited to become affiliated with a national brand that has a quality reputation for providing guests with a ‘home away from home’ experience,” said Tom Johnsen, President of Forbes Hamilton Management Company. “Because our guests are our top priority, our goal is to bring the new Lexington Hotel Montgomery to the high standards we maintain throughout our company.

“The Montgomery community is an excellent location for a Lexington Hotel,” said Belmonte. “The city of Montgomery and the people within it provide a warm and inviting welcome to all business and leisure travelers. Lexington takes great pride in becoming active within the communities in which its hotels reside, and we are looking forward to becoming an important part of Montgomery.”
