About Sunridge Hotel Group

Paul Welker founded Sunridge Properties and began operations in 1981 developing small office and apartment properties along with his first hotel project (the Best Western Pinetop Inn) in Pinetop, Arizona.  The main area of focus for Sunridge has always been in the hospitality industry with the development of approximately 40 hotel projects representing various hotel brands.

Sunridge is currently focused on the development of Marriott brand hotels which comprise the majority of its current portfolio.  Currently, Sunridge operates all five of the Marriott CFRST brands including Courtyard, Fairfield Inn and Suites, Residence Inn, SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites.

Since joining Marriott in 1999, Sunridge has received numerous awards including multiple “Management Company of the Year” awards, multiple “Best New Opening” awards and awards for highest “Guest Satisfaction Scores” (GSS), just to name a few.  Sunridge is also a six-time recipient of Marriott’s most prestigious award, “The Partnership Circle Award”, which is presented to Marriott’s top Management & Development Companies.

Sunridge's success is the result of our associates who adopt the “Spirit to Serve” attitude and who take pride in meeting and exceeding Guest Expectations.
