To all the new-to-the-scene hoteliers out there looking for ideas on how to get a nascent hotel business up and running and wildly successful as quickly as possible: we hear you.

And to get you the best advice possible, we called in our on-the-ground specialists: Jamie Patterson and Matt Chojnacki, who recently took over managing the exquisitely renovated, 10-suite 19th-century-castle-turned-luxury-guesthouse in Poland called The Palace at Osowa Sien.

The wife-and-husband hotel management team shared with us their innkeeping experiences. Even better, they revealed the hotel business initiatives that are quickly making The Palace at Osowa Sien a must-stay spot for vacations, retreats, and special events.

In other words, these rising stars of hospitality gave us some of the best advice out there on how to turn a newly opened independent hotel into a business success.

Which, naturally, we’re delighted to share with you.
