Meet Justin Holley

Justin began his career in the hospitality industry, working for La Quinta Hotels based out of San Antonio.  This opportunity allowed him to travel throughout the United States and experience life in a variety of settings.  Originally from Wisconsin, Justin could choose to settle in any city, but a transfer to San Antonio in 2001 won his heart and he never left.

A work layoff in 2006 allowed him to experience travel that would impact the rest of his career. Justin took a year off to travel to reflect on his next choices.  His most impactful destination was a mission trip to Africa which taught him the true meaning of giving back to a community. With hospitality in his blood and San Antonio in his heart, he pursued jobs to remain in San Antonio.  He became the General Manager of the Staybridge at Sunset Station.  In 2012, he formed a partnership with his current business partner to establish ABH Hospitality managing and consulting with San Antonio hotels in operations and promotion.  Today, ABH Hospitality has seven hotels in their portfolio.

The genuine kindness and passion Justin received from coworkers, neighbors and industry leaders hooked him into making San Antonio his permanent home. In 2017, Justin purchased and renovated a home in Woodlawn Terrace.  Keeping his roots deep in our city, the house was owned for over six decades by his great aunt and uncle.  When his great aunt passed in 2016, Justin purchased the home from his cousins and began the 18 month-long processes of updating his new residence.  He lives there with his four dogs, three of whom are rescue animals.
