About Us

BBL Hospitality is a full-service hotel management company based in Albany, NY.

History of BBL Hospitality

Hotel management has changed radically over the last 40 years. Achieving and maintaining quality requires know-how and top-notch dedication to staffing, systems, and services. Since 1973, when founder Don Led Duke first launched his masonry business, through the company’s early leadership in design-build construction, and our subsequent evolution of one-stop property services, the BBL companies have earned an outstanding reputation for:

  • Straight-shooting and high integrity. We have always treated our customers with respect and honesty. They have rewarded us by bringing their business to us again and again.
  • Listening to our customers. Our business has continually evolved in direct response to our customers’ needs.
  • Advancing our people. We hire people with high standards of integrity who care deeply about the quality of their work. We reward excellence with opportunities to learn, grow, and advance.

BBL has always built hotels and we’ve owned our own hotels since 2000. We’ve continually followed our customers’ needs and expanded our expertise and specialty in hospitality development and operations." - Steve Obermayer, President of BBL Hospitality
