Shaner Hotel Group

Our Mission & Core Values

As a leading hotel developer, owner and operator in a progressive global hospitality industry, Shaner Hotels has a rich tradition of dedicated, high-quality hotel management service that dates back three generations. It all started when Lance Shaner and his brother Fred began investing in real estate in the 1970s, and their initial achievements set the course for the company we are today. Lance, the CEO and Chairman of the Shaner Companies, attributes our success to a conservative investment strategy focused on long-term profitability, a dedication to meeting the needs of customers and the resourcefulness of our company’s associates.

Our Mission

Every day, in all that we do, we strive to deliver extraordinary experiences for guests, solid financial results for owners and partners and a great work environment for every associate through dynamic growth, commitment to innovation and drive for continued success.
