Learn more about Magnuson Hotels

Our founders

Melissa and Thomas Magnuson co-founded Magnuson Worldwide in 2003 as the world’s first independent hotel chain.

Now nearly twenty years later with a footprint that includes North America and Europe, the company remains true to the original ethos; providing comprehensive personalized support and customized technology for independently minded hotel owners to succeed in their local markets without heavy corporate franchise expense or requirements.

Today, hotel owners can affiliate with Magnuson Hotels as an independent or a franchised brand.
