About Coury Hospitality:

We are a group of forward-thinkers who are driven to create beautiful places and inspire unforgettable experiences. Our approach is very hands-on and creative, and our goal is to lay the foundation to usher you into an innovative realm of possibilities. Whether you are renovating an existing hotel, considering the purchase of a hotel, or exploring the viability of retrofitting a building for hospitality purposes, we are here to make your visions reality.

We live and breathe hospitality and offer expertise in every facet of our field.

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.


About the team:

We are a team of strong leadership united in our vision of delivering world-class service. We operate businesses with a hands-on approach at every level of our team. The collaboration between the executive team and hotel associates gives us our unique, inclusive culture, which translates into the exceptional experiences we deliver to our guests.
