About ARRIVE Hotels & Restaurants

AHR was founded in 2012 to create and manage innovative hotels and restaurants.  Founded by leaders in the hotel, restaurant, architecture and technology industries, AHR seeks to refresh traditional hotel and restaurant management models and to build public spaces that celebrate and are celebrated by their local communities.

AHR’s philosophy is that its restaurants – even those located within or near its hotels – must have a truly independent feeling and focus on attracting and retaining local business.  In other words, AHR does not build “hotel restaurants”; it simply builds outstanding places to eat, drink and spend time. 

Recently featured in the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and Conde Nast Traveler, AHR has already garnered substantial media attention and praise for its forward-thinking approach to hotels and restaurants.  With additional hotel and restaurant projects currently underway in Austin, AHR expects to grow its brand and footprint significantly within the next five years.
