In the world of luxury hospitality, there exists a venerable hotel management company known as Trans Inns Management (www.transinns.com). With a history dating back over 40 years, Trans Inns builds an illustrious reputation for operating some of the finest branded (Marriott, Hilton, and Starwood) hotels and resorts in the United States. They are known for their impeccable service, exquisite design, and a commitment to delivering extraordinary experiences to their guests.
As the years pass, Trans Inns saw an opportunity to expand their reach and cater to a more discerning clientele. They envisioned a lifestyle boutique division that focuses exclusively on managing high-end lifestyle boutique hotels, each with its own unique charm and character. Thus, VOS Hospitality is born.
VOS, which stands for "Vision of Style," is established as a distinct division within the Trans Inns family. It is led by a dynamic and visionary duo Daniel and James Vosotas, hospitality professionals with a keen eye for design and an unwavering commitment to creating unforgettable guest experiences.
Daniel and James know that VOS Hospitality needs to be more than just a luxury brand; it needs to be a curator of exceptional moments. With their leadership, VOS sets out to identify and manage a collection of boutique hotels that are destinations in themselves.
At VOS Hospitality, the team understands that it is the little details that make a guest's stay truly memorable. Each property has its own story, from the coastal charm of "the Greystone" in Miami Beach to the artistic vibe of "the David Whitney" in Detroit’s downtown district.
The relationship between VOS Hospitality and Trans Inns Management is a resounding success, earning accolades from travel magazines, celebrities, and discerning travelers from around the world. These hotels become the flagship properties of VOS Hospitality, setting the standard for their collection of boutique hotels.
As VOS Hospitality works hand in hand to curate these exceptional destinations, they prove that when vision, style, and passion converge, they can create experiences that transcend the ordinary, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of those fortunate enough to be their guests. In the world of luxury boutique hotels, VOS Hospitality is the architect of dreams, turning every stay into a journey of discovery and delight.
Their first venture with VOS Hospitality was an enchanting, century-old office building. The David Whitney Building nestled at the epicenter of the rebirth of downtown Detroit..
Completed in 1915, the 19-story building was the skyscraper of its time, representing a symbol of classic American strength and beauty. Built in homage to the great lumber and shipping magnate David Whitney Jr., the building was designed by the legendary architectural firm Daniel H. Burnham & Co. VOS restored the 20th-century office building with interiors clad in marble, blending modern luxury with timeless elegance at a cost of over $100 million.
The Whitney offered an intimate escape from the city's hustle and bustles and sweeping views of the Detroit landscape, the conversion was a dream come true for travelers seeking a luxurious escape. VOS Hospitality transformed the office building into a lifestyle boutique hotel and luxury apartments. Every room was meticulously designed, blending modern comfort with historic charm. Michelin-starred chefs were brought in to create culinary masterpieces from locally sourced ingredients, and the cellars were stocked with rare and exquisite wines.
The hotel was a resounding success, earning accolades from travel magazines, celebrities, and discerning travelers from around the world. The hotel became the flagship property of VOS Hospitality, setting the standard for their collection of boutique hotels.
Over the years, VOS Hospitality continued to expand its portfolio, always seeking out properties that told a unique story and offered experiences that were nothing short of magical..
Nestled amidst the vibrant energy and dazzling beaches of South Beach, Miami, there stood a hidden gem of the hospitality world—a high-end lifestyle boutique hotel known as “Hotel Greystone.” The Greystone was not just a place to stay; it was an experience, and behind it was the visionary lifestyle boutique hotel management company, VOS Hospitality.
The hotel was an architectural masterpiece, its sleek, modern design blending seamlessly with the art deco heritage of South Beach. With only 93 rooms, each one exquisitely designed and adorned with original artworks, VOS ensured that the historic elements remained for an intimate and personalized experience for its guests.
Built in 1939, Hotel Greystone is one of architect Henry Hohauser's iconic contributions to Collins Avenue. Its place in the Deco tradition of Miami Beach is unmistakable, from its ziggurat roofline, rounded corner with “eyebrows” and porthole windows.
The hotel's pièce de résistance was its rooftop pool overlooking ocean drive and it seemed to spill into the endless expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. It was the perfect spot to witness Miami's famed sunsets, and guests often found themselves lost in the captivating hues of the horizon.
James had a deep appreciation for gastronomy, and he recruited a renowned chef to helm the hotel's restaurant, “Serevene." Overlooking the Collins Avenue, Serevene was a culinary haven, where guests could savor the flavors of Miami's diverse cuisine with a modern twist. Locally sourced ingredients, creative cocktails, and an extensive wine list created an unforgettable dining experience.
Word of VOS's unparalleled hospitality and hotel of escapes' commitment to creating extraordinary moments spread far and wide. Soon, the hotel was hosting celebrities, jetsetters, and discerning travelers from around the world.
