The Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association is a private, nonprofit trade association that began 47 years ago. On August 28, 1972, a small group of hoteliers filed articles of incorporation with the Department of Revenue and Taxation for a new corporation to be known as the Guam Hotel Association Inc.

In 1974, the six-member board (representing the Guam Hilton Hotel, the Cliff Hotel, the Guam Dai-Ichi Hotel, the Okura Hotel, the Fujita Guam Tumon Beach Hotel and the Reef Hotel) amended its bylaws to include restaurants and renamed it the Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association.
In 1992, the association once again revised its bylaws. 

The Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association is proud of its history and record of community service activities. It sponsors:

  • Academic scholarships in the visitor industry trades
