Hotel/Motel Umbrella Programs

The facility is backed by an “A” rated, Admitted, Size XV carrier that is exclusive to our facility (one of the Liberty Mutual Insurance companies).  The program is designed for limited-service, franchised Hotels & Motels and it provides excellent coverage at an extremely competitive price. 

We offer $5M ($1,500 minimum premium) and $10M ($2,500 minimum) limit options.
