LOCAL HERITAGE, MODERN HOSPITALITY

On paper, we are a hospitality investment and management company. In practice, we are experience curators and delight brokers. What sets us apart is our obsessive attention to detail and genuine passion for hosting.

Alvin and Kevin Mansour,
Founders and Creative Directors

Alvin and Kevin Mansour’s vision and acumen poise them to redefine the hospitality industry in San Diego and the face of Downtown.



The Mansour brothers quickly rose to industry leaders in commercial real estate. These endeavors culminated with a landmark property in Downtown San Diego — along the San Diego waterfront marina district.

The acquisitions signaled a new narrative for the Mansour brothers, as visionaries in lifestyle hospitality. The flagship property — the historic Army-Navy YMCA Building at 500 West Broadway— is set to launch as The Guild, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel in early 2019.

The Mansours’ concept for a modern boutique experience will unfold just steps away from the iconic San Diego waterfront. The hotel’s design and brand embrace the storied elements of the building, from the gymnasium-turned-ballroom — with an elevated running track that serves as a mezzanine — to the overflowing gardens and soaring windows. Every detail, every square inch reflects their refined eye and passion for detail.

Alvin was recognized nationally by Forbes Magazine’s Top 30 Under 30 in 2011. Kevin oversees the acquisition and reflagging of all hotels in the Oram Hotels portfolio. He assumed full-time management of one of the hotels at age 17, demonstrating his innate business acuity and ambitious work ethic.

Their extensive travels and friendships with titans in hospitality and fashion inform all Oram Hotels design concepts. The innovative layouts, refined aesthetics, and bespoke amenities all reflect the Mansours’ passion and sensibility for boutique luxury hospitality.

OUR HOTELS

Through obsessive attention to detail, hands-on management, devotion to design, and strong relationships with the world’s top hotel brands, we are redefining modern hospitality in America's Finest City.

OUR PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE, YET POWERFUL.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL.

From the light casings, to the floorboards, to the linen counts — every single detail, every square inch, creates value.

WOW THE GUEST. 

High-quality where we start. Our goal is uncommon, exceptional hospitality that defines the guest’s travel experience.

CHAMPION THE TEAM. 

We empower our associates to define their roles and proactively serve guests, further driving revenue and profitability.

KEEP THE DOOR OPEN. 

We embrace feedback from our guests and associates. This openness keeps our pulse on the industry and allows us to adapt efficiently.

SALES. 

Our sales team deals in relationships. We get to know our clients and their needs, and then we tailor our solutions accordingly. For us, there’s no such thing as impossible—just not done yet. Our ambitiousness drives our success.

MARKETING.

We know how to get people talking—online and offline. Through existing relationships with brand partners and community influencers, social media strategy, and letting our designs speak for themselves, we stand apart from the competition and make a clear impression.

GROWTH.

We actively seek out acquisitions, developments, and opportunities to boost our competitive advantage. As we expand our penetration into core urban markets, our team has more than $5 billion in completed real estate transactions—and we’re not sitting back.

PROVEN APPROACH.

Preserve and restore the historical elements, incorporate the surrounding architecture and culture and obsessively tailor the details, services and amenities to the traveler.

WE’RE ON A MISSION TO LEAD AND DEFINE MODERN HOSPITALITY.

And it all starts with our own team. We hire people who love our industry and want to lead it. Those who take initiative, make memorable connections, and care about the little things—like what drinks our guests like, what music they listen to, what makes them feel at home.

Because our associates, like our guests, are an expression of who we are, and both shape what we accomplish. We are a family-owned company and our employees are part of our family. Many become long-term, even lifelong, members of Oram Hotels. There’s no exclusivity here; once you’re in, you’re in. 

Let’s create something amazing together.
