About Us

Hospitality Solutions, Inc., was originally formed in 2004 as Hospitality Management Solutions, Inc. (HMS) by its founder, Logan Coykendall. His goal in forming the company was to achieve long-term sustainable success through environmentally responsible project development, sound business practices and superior investment management based on a proven track record.

Management, development, employment and investment solutions.

It started with the formation of a professional group of employees that are committed to develop and acquire high-quality hotel properties, as well as to provide dedicated hotel management services to both full-service and upscale select-service properties.  Under Mr. Coykendall’s leadership, this effective team has management and development experiences varying from quaint inns to luxury full service hotels.

Hospitality Solutions, Inc. started with the company’s first hotel management contract of the Hampton Inn Gatlinburg.  Since this contract, Hospitality Solutions has continued to grow to add several management contracts, as well as develop several projects throughout the Southeast.

In 2008, Hospitality Management Solutions broke ground on its first development project. The Hilton Garden Inn opened in 2008 and was the first LEED certified hotel in the state of Tennessee.  This pioneer property earned the development award from Hilton Worldwide and national recognition from the American Hotel and Lodging Association.

The Hospitality Management Solutions team also developed the Hampton Inn Pigeon Forge, which opened in June, 2012.  The name of the company was changed to Hospitality Solutions, Inc. in 2013.  Hospitality Solutions encompasses the company’s primary mission of on-going daily hotel operations as well as hotel development and project oversight.

At Hospitality Solutions, we are constantly striving to create value for our partners and associates by leveraging our operations, development, sales/marketing, technology, accounting, and operational management expertise to continue to grow our portfolio of first-class hotels.
