S&L Hospitality has established itself as a highly successful and respected hospitality development and management company. Long before the company was founded in 2005, the founders had a very long and prosperous partnership that included diversified real estate development and management, and a rock solid reputation for developing and operating first-rate hotels, resorts and spas.
Before S&L Hospitality, the founders helped build one of the strongest development and management companies in the industry, The Great Lakes Companies, Inc (GLC). GLC built 18 hotels and resorts, as well as 40 assisted living and Section 42 developments between 1996 - 2004. In 1999, GLC acquired Great Wolf Lodge® in Wisconsin Dells, WI and helped build the company into what has become known as North America’s largest brand of indoor waterpark resorts. Renamed Great Wolf Resorts, the company went public in 2004. Shortly thereafter, a new venture began, called S&L Hospitality.
Today, S&L Hospitality has hotels throughout the US ranging in size from limited-service properties to full-service hotels with restaurants, lounges, and meeting and banquet space. Their corporate team is comprised of hospitality industry experts in a range of specialty fields. With their office in Verona, WI, the S&L Hospitality team has prior experience developing and/or managing more than $800 million in hotels and resorts, indoor waterparks, high-end spas and a combined over 100,000 square-feet of conference and meeting space.
