Our story began in 1986 when a group of friends from Minnesota purchased a distressed beachfront high-rise in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Their ambition was to create a resort-style property offering an experience that was unavailable to guests of the area. The result was a solid blueprint that has been used as successful business strategy for nearly 30 years.

We have managed hotels large and small, tailoring our approach to meet their individual needs. Our comprehensive services and dynamic management approach have provided guests and owners with an unmatched level of service. We have been recognized as a leader in the hospitality industry, having earned a reputation for repeat visitation and positive investment performance.

In the fall of 2014, we announced a strategic partnership with investment firm Core Property Capital. Together, we formed Core Hotels & Resorts, which combines the expertise and leadership of SunStream in hospitality management and development with the proven success of Core Property Capital in commercial real estate investment and income acquisition. As a regionally focused, full-service hospitality management company, Core Hotels & Resorts is driven to source and acquire new management opportunities to further expand our collection.
