HISTORY

Founded in 1983 by President & CEO Steve Van, Prism Hotels has evolved into an award-winning full-service hotel management company with a well-earned reputation for delivering extraordinary results and maintaining that performance over time.

In the early 1980s, Steve and a small group of partners began building, buying, repositioning, and operating some of the most well-known landmark luxury hotels in Texas—The Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa in Houston, The Melrose Hotel in Dallas, The Hyatt Hotel in Austin, and the Westchase Hilton Hotel in Houston. Prism was quickly established as one of the premier boutique developers and operators in the Southwest. Over time, our talented team of experienced professionals began to identify an opportunity to leverage our extensive hands-on management expertise and deep national relationships to grow our management portfolio.

We continued to expand and enhance our capabilities by handpicking a world-class division of operators from talent pools across the nation. As a result, when the rest of the industry was tightening its belt in the early 2000s, Prism was broadening its horizons and expanding its portfolio of managed hotels.

Today, we have emerged as an industry powerhouse with a track record of operational excellence and a growing list of satisfied owners, entrepreneurs, and professional partners. We stand armed with the unique skillset needed to inspire excellence in some of the most recognized and desirable full-service hotels nationally—including the largest Hyatt Regency franchise in North America, the Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport—and the ability to advance the hospitality industry with our revolutionary approach.
