Butler Hospitality - Asset Manager

About Butler

Butler Hospitality works with hotel developers, owners, and operators to increase the efficiency of hotel food and beverage operations. Butler leases restaurants inside of full-service hotels, taking over front-of-house operations while transforming back-of-house space into a delivery hub for virtual room service and catering to nearby limited and select service hotels. Currently serving over 250 hotels and 40,000 keys in NYC, Chicago, Miami, Washington DC, Denver, and San Francisco, Butler will expand to ten additional markets by the end of 2022.
