Our story began 30 years ago when Paul Coury founded Coury Properties, a full-service commercial real estate investment advisory firm. In the late 1980's, Paul purchased his first hotel for redevelopment and started providing asset management services for an investor with hotels and golf courses spanning Florida, Chicago, California and Alaska. Over the years, operations also grew to include management of more than twenty commercial properties, investor-ownership of fifteen sites and a construction consulting development brokerage service, as well as the development of three ground-up residential communities, with an aggregate company value in excess of $200 million.
In 1999, after an extensive historical renovation that tied updated elegance and old glory together perfectly, Paul opened the doors of his first boutique hotel. The Ambassador Hotel Tulsa paved the way for many of our portfolio’s historic hotel renovations. As our portfolio continued to grow, we formed our hospitality division, Coury Hospitality.
