In the spirit of the holiday season, Blue MauMau is publishing a story that Roger Bloss of Vantage Hotels told us in an exclusive interview during his company’s annual conference in Las Vegas a year ago. Mr. Bloss is the CEO, president and founder of Vantage Hospitality Group, the holding company for economy hotel chain America’s Best Value Inn and the newer mid- to upper-scale Lexington line of hotels. Vantage has quickly grown to be the eighth largest hotel company in the world by property count – over 1,100 hotels.
