Tips for operating an independent hotel in a world of global brands
Situated amongst Central New York’s Finger Lakes, hotelier and restauranteur Michael Casper’s Private Hotel + Pure Food delivers a level of hands-on hospitality and guest satisfaction that is unrivaled and appreciated by visitors from around the world.

However, rather than make concessions to increase occupancy or bolster revenue, Michael relies on a surgeon-like attention to detail and personalized, “whatever the guest wants” level of service to maintain a sterling reputation highlighted by a #1 TripAdvisor rating.
