Susan Barry | Founder + Queen Bee

I began my professional hospitality career running an off-premise catering company in Florida and, after many years of sleepless nights, made the shift to luxury hotels. I spent the next ten years leading sales and marketing for hotels in Denver, CO; Washington, DC; and Atlanta, GA. After opening two hotels in three years, I founded Hive Marketing in 2009.

Like all good hoteliers, I only like pictures of myself taken on vacation. When I'm not working on a client project, I love to explore street art in new cities, try weird food, and hunt for treasure in antique and thrift stores.


All photos on this site were taken by Susan while travelling the world, both for hotel projects and fun. The image above was shot in Havana, Cuba, after getting caught in a torrential downpour. Good times!
