Who We Are


Mission Statement

Our mission is to address the unique needs and expectations of each guest, providing consistent value, always striving to offer the best experience for our visitors. Our history and perseverance dictate we make the right decisions in an ever-changing lodging industry, always pursuing excellence in what we do.


The story began in 1951, when our extended family immigrated from India. Three months of traveling overseas, eventually they were processed through Ellis Island, and these pioneers began planting their hospitality roots in the hills of San Francisco.

After seven years of service-oriented work and dedicated savings, family members were able to lease their first hotel (The Alder hotel in San Francisco). The original property is still managed by the extended family. Every member of the family worked night and day to successfully manage and operate all facets of the hotel business.

Providing exceptional service comes naturally to us. Hospitality is a way of life, not just a business.
