In 2016, Waterview Hospitality, LLC was formed as a joint venture with Michael B. Holtz and Michael P. Holtz to undertake the management of the hotels that MPH Hotels, Inc. develops. MPH develops limited service and extended stay hotels, typically 75 to 150 rooms in secondary markets; operate these for a period of time; then sell the hotel and realize the potential gain for the investors.

Waterview and MPH Hotels believe the key to success is an inverted pyramid management model which empowers our employees to make decisions that will better the guest experience.  Michael B and Michael P work for their Vice Presidents of Operations, in turn the VPís work for the General Managers, the General Managers work for their employees and the employees work for the guests, then the guest pay all our wages. This emphasizes the importance of the guest experience which is the cornerstone of success in our business.  Not only has this led to loyalty of our guests, but also with our employees who continue to grow within the company.
