With a grandfather hailing from Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration and an uncle that served as past president of the International Society of Hospitality Consultants (ISHC), Ben Levin had some strong voices guiding him toward a career in hospitality. As a Director with HVS Atlanta, Ben brings this heritage and heart to every hotel assignment. Prior to joining HVS, Ben worked in operational roles at the St. Regis Atlanta and the Microtel Inn & Suites in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This wide-ranging, hands-on experience at mid-market and ultra-luxury hotels combines with his excellence at field research and number-crunching to guide him to an authoritative conclusion about a hotel’s feasibility or value. Ben graduated summa cum laude from the University of Alabama with a B.S. in Restaurant and Hospitality Management. Memberships during his university years included the Sigma Nu Fraternity, the Hotel and Restaurant and Convention Association (HARACA), and the Eta Sigma Delta National Hospitality Honors Society. Ben is a state-certified general appraiser.
