SAN ANTONIO-Presidian Destinations, a hotel-management firm based in San Antonio, is looking to pick off third-party management contracts from hotel owners unhappy with their property managers.

“These tough economic times will cause all hotel owners to re-evaluate the performance of their management companies,” Chester Reed, president of Presidian, said in a press release. “Many will find, as did we, that their current management companies are not looking out for their best interests.”
