Charleston, SC – October 2, 2023 – Charlestowne Hotels, a leading hospitality management company, today announces its continued expansion in the Midwest with the management takeover of The H Hotel in Midland, Michigan—its first property in the state and seventh in the region.
As The H Hotel transitions from a Dolce by Wyndham to an independent property, Charlestowne’s specialized expertise in managing lifestyle hotels will ensure The H Hotel maintains its exemplary service and commitment to excellence while remaining a point of pride within Michigan’s Great Lakes Bay Region.
The 139-room award-winning hotel, which has been a AAA Four Diamond recipient each year since 2013, is situated in the heart of Midland and offers a plethora of ways to infuse area highlights into any visit. Many are drawn to Midland for its “big-city industry,” and are quickly charmed by its small-town feel, vibrant arts & culture scene, and expansive outdoor recreation options. An ideal destination for elegant wedding receptions, The H Hotel offers several venue spaces, including a ballroom with adjacent foyer, breathtaking outdoor courtyard ceremony space, and smaller indoor options for more intimate affairs. The hotel’s 25,000+ square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space and imaginative group catering options have solidified The H Hotel as the ideal site in the Great Lakes Bay Region and throughout Michigan for events, community gatherings, and industry conferences.
“Our team has decades of experience managing lifestyle hotels, and to work with a property that’s transitioning to being independently run is especially exciting for us,” says Kyle Hughey, CEO of Charlestowne Hotels. “The H Hotel is respected for its long-standing commitment to the community, and as part of this transition, we’re working directly alongside ownership to elevate the existing character and charm of this iconic Midland property.”
The H Hotel offers three dining establishments, each with its own flair and flavor. Café Zinc brings the café culture of Europe to the Heartland. One eighteen features classic American cuisine set amidst mid-century design and a tavern-style feel. Oxygen Lounge is a top-rated bar and lounge that serves as a community hotspot and go-to destination for business travelers after a day of meetings. For those cold Midwestern winters, The H Hotel offers luxurious Winter Dining Pods that allow for cozy outdoor dining.
“We’re looking forward to collaborating with Charlestowne Hotels on ways to further enhance on-site facilities and guest programming as we seek to create a heightened sense of place for all who walk through our doors,” says Derek Grimaldi, General Manager of The H Hotel. “Through this new partnership, we’ll introduce more ways for our visitors to savor Midland’s vibrant arts, culture, and recreational offerings through thoughtful amenities and tailored experiences.”
Located at 111 W. Main St., The H Hotel offers guests access to some of Michigan’s greatest treasures. It joins Charlestowne’s Midwest portfolio alongside newly opened Hotel Verdant (Racine, WI), and the award-winning Deer Path Inn (Lake Forest, IL).
