The People Behind BPR

In less than five decades, BPR grew from a one-hotel operation into one of the West Coast’s top hotel management companies. We didn’t, however, do it alone. Over the years, our company has worked with some incredible people — we still do. We think they’re our greatest strength, and we hope that you get to know them better.
