"Superior Hospitality Partners provided a unique approach to the training modules they utilized in recent sessions for the staffs of several of our properties. They first mystery shopped our hotels and developed training to emphasize the areas that need help. We found this approach to be beneficial and improved staff performance. Our staff varies in experience but even the seasoned veterans felt there was helpful information provided."

 Ketan Patel - President, SCA Hotels

truly useful.  I learned great tools."

  • After retiring from hands on hotel ownership I decided to use my experience of the hospitality industry to assist clients in maximizing their business potential. Owners and managers are often focused on day to day operations and may miss opportunities to enhance the guest experience with minor changes that will make your guests become

  • loyal fans.


  • My 30 years of management and leadership experience keeping my hotels at the very top of the market brings an unique focus to these areas. My “think like an owner” philosophy has been invaluable in teaching my team at all levels to be aware of the impact they have on the guest experience. Our comprehensive review and customized application of these concepts will improve your market share, boost social media ratings, and increase guest satisfaction regardless of  competition in your market.

  • These improvements will bolster your bottom line.

Eric Trotochaud, CHRM

I began my journey of creating memorable experiences for guests at a very young age while working at our family owned hotel.  After many years of working through all departments in our family hotel, I began my formal education at Michigan State University in The School of Hospitality Business.  Since graduation I have had the privilege of expanding my experiences within the industry. 


My foundation in hospitality has been applied to many different businesses. Educating and training staff in non-traditional hospitality businesses about the belief in the experience of the consumer & the importance of the stories that they tell has been paramount to our success.  Hospitality is not an industry or type of business; it is a mindset that builds the foundation for success through developing the experience.
