Our Story

It all began in 2001 with the inception of Elise Management, a pioneering force in comprehensive property management solutions. Over the years, Elise Management carved a niche for itself, establishing a solid foundation based on excellence and client satisfaction.

In 2004, a transformative milestone unfolded with the integration of CBRE Hospitality, a distinguished division of the globally renowned CBRE Group. This union brought forth a new era in hospitality management, injecting cutting-edge practices and elevating standards within the industry. CBRE Hospitality’s influence extended beyond borders, reshaping the landscape of property and asset management.

The story continued to unfold in 2007 when Compass Hospitality emerged, marking a significant chapter in the brand’s evolution. Building upon the strengths of Elise Management and CBRE Hospitality, Compass Hospitality became a dynamic force in the hospitality and property management realm. With a customer-centric approach, Compass Hospitality swiftly gained recognition as a trusted partner for property owners, offering a comprehensive suite of services ranging from hotel management to strategic planning.

The year 2007 was a pivotal moment for the brand, as Compass Hospitality not only symbolized the culmination of years of experience but also represented a new beginning. The name itself, “Compass Hospitality,” reflects a direction toward excellence, guiding clients through a journey of unparalleled service and innovation.

Today, Compass Hospitality stands as a testament to the seamless integration of Elise Management and CBRE Hospitality, embodying a rich history and a commitment to shaping the future of property and hospitality management. The brand’s evolution showcases a trajectory of success, adaptability, and a relentless pursuit of excellence that continues to define Compass Hospitality in the ever-evolving landscape of the industry.
