The earliest inns were established several centuries ago and were places of rest and rejuvenation as some of the world’s greatest leaders, poets, warriors, philosophers, scholars, and thinkers ventured on personal, often dangerous quests that shaped much of our world today.

Hospitality’s cause was humble and human — to provide a meager bed and peace of mind as one continued the journey. Often, a fear of being cursed by the gods drove the need to be hospitable to strangers.

The world has evolved. Today’s leaders, poets, warriors, philosophers, scholars, and inventors still need a place to stay. A place to take a break from the change; to find inspiration; to ask questions; to solve a growing list of global challenges.

To aid them along, lodging must remain awake.

Lodging never sleeps. Lodging will endure. Long Live Lodging.
