About Highpointe

Highpointe Hotel Corporation is a full-service management and development company based in Gulf Breeze, Florida.

Founded in 1982, Highpointe provides professional management services for institutions, third-party investors, and hotels in our own portfolio. Today, the firm employs 500 people and operates 14 hotels, with several new projects in its development pipeline.

Since 1994, Highpointe has completed over $200 million in new hotel development for our own portfolio (currently located in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Mobile and Pensacola), and has assisted in another $50 million for third-party clients.

Highpointe development projects include the 107-suite Homewood Suites Pensacola Airport, the 120-room Courtyard by Marriott Pensacola/Downtown, a 102-room Hampton Inn & Suites Mobile-Providence Park/Airport, and a 45-room boutique property, “The Inn at Patrick Square” in Clemson, South Carolina. Highpointe also developed and continues to own and operate two hotels in Louisiana. Additionally, the firm developed a 137-unit Hilton Garden Inn and recently completed the development of an 86 all-suite Residence Inn by Marriott, both located in Pensacola, FL. 

Highpointe’s founders, Darryl Lapointe, Dave Cleveland, and Bob Cleveland, are still running the company today. With the same leadership team in place since the company's inception, we know stability is the key to consistent results. Each and every day, we put our reputation on the line with every action, every recommendation, and every decision we make.

We have many long-term business partnerships forged through consistent, solid management. These relationships speak to our ongoing commitment to the most valued assets of all: personal, financial, and professional integrity.
