We Are BohemianGrand PerformerBohemian isn’t a label. It’s a relentless sense of curiosity. A license to let creativity come out and play. It’s sharing your art side, inviting cultures to connect and finding new ways to appreciate the world. We celebrate originality. And err on the side of unconventional. We inspire guests to challenge plans—to find themselves delightfully distracted by the art that surrounds them or to get lost in the stories each piece holds. We invite them to join us in the kitchen for cooking school, try wine blending, or to taste something new on our menu. We give guest rooms a new soundtrack. And hotel stays a new story. The Bohemian lifestyle invites our guests to wander. To explore what inspires them. And claim what fuels their passion.
Richard KesslerChairman & CEOBack in 1970, Richard Kessler became real estate developer Cecil Day’s right hand man, at just 23 years old, when they both helped found Days Inn of America. He spent the next five years working diligently, leading five estate developments and operational companies which prepared him to become the president and CEO of Days Inn. One year later, he became the chairman at 29 years old and in the 1980s, he opened a separate division dedicated to boutique hotels with a property in Savannah, Georgia and another in Orlando, Florida. The Days Inn chain was sold in 1984 and Kessler introduced his new independent venture, The Kessler Enterprise, Inc., which he still runs today as president and CEO. His main goal at the time was to break into the development of his own boutique hotels. The name “Bohemian” was inspired by the Bohemian Club in California and it provides an experience for guests and visitors to step away from the usual. It invites them to feed into their curiosity by embracing the European Bohemian Lifestyle as an unconventional wandering gypsy with a healthy dose of funky California spirit. This ambience can be felt in each hotel, where guests are encouraged to give into temptation and let their creativity come out to play. In April 2010, the Marriott International Inc., Autograph Collection made its debut with seven Kessler Collection properties. Today, there are a total of 9 properties in The Kessler Collection, including Casa Monica Resort & Spa, St. Augustine, Florida; Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando, Florida; Bohemian Hotel Celebration, Orlando, Florida; Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville, North Carolina; Beaver Creek Lodge, Colorado; Bohemian Hotel Savannah Riverfront, Georgia; Mansion on Forsyth Park, Savannah, Georgia; Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston, South Carolina and Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook, Alabama. However, the collection is still growing and three new Grand Bohemian properties are coming soon in Charlotte, Atlanta and Greenville.
