General Hotels doesn't generalize about Hoosier hospitality. The hotel management company operates about 10 hotels (totaling some 1,800 rooms) in the state of Indiana. Its hotel brands include Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, and Homewood Suites. Its properties are all full-service locations and most offer meeting or conference facilities. The company's services include sales and marketing, human resources, and finance and accounting. The hotels regularly win awards from their respective franchise companies and other organizations. General Hotels was founded in 1958 by hospitality veteran and chairman James E. Dora, who owns the company.
