The Shah Family, founders of Hersha Hotels and Resorts and HHM Hotels, received the esteemed Stephen W. Brener Silver Plate Award at the NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference. This accolade, presented by Hotel News Now and Questex, honors their significant contributions to the hotel and tourism industries.

The Big Picture: Hersha Hotels and Resorts operates 25 luxury hotels across prime locations like New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, and California. HHM Hotels manages and invests in a national portfolio of 240 hotels.

Why It Matters: This award, presented for the first time to a family, recognizes Hasu and Hersha Shah's foundational work and the continuing efforts of their sons, AAHOA Member Jay Shah and Neil Shah. Their dedication culminated in KSL Capital Partners' recent $1.4 billion acquisition of Hersha Hotels.

Industry Impact: The award, honoring industry commitment since 1959, was renamed in 1994 to commemorate Stephen W. Brener, a notable hotel consultant and WWII veteran. Previous recipients include industry giants like Marriott's Arne Sorensen and Hilton's Christopher Nassetta.

Quotable: “The Shah Family built their hospitality companies from the ground up, and they continue to evolve the business in ways that benefit the industry and their stakeholders. We are happy to present this year’s Stephen W. Brener Silver Plate Award to this legendary family,” said Stephanie Ricca, editorial director of Hotel News Now.
