Do you consider yourself a leader who feeds off the energy of being in the midst of the action? Are you a food and beverage visionary ready to execute your concepts and step up as Hotel General Manager? Do you have a passion for serving people and creating amazing moments? Discover Mainsail Lodging & Development, a dynamic, established company that enjoys the flexibility and agility of an entrepreneurial start-up.
We consider ourselves the guide and our guests are our heroes! We celebrate and support them all while sharing our unique story.

The ideal General Manager is the “quarterback” who actively participates in the operation and leads by example, constantly analyzing, inspecting, and innovating the operation and service delivery. This leadership role will implement the company’s hyper-local hospitality principles by understanding the community’s concerns and needs, which may include charitable and volunteering opportunities, participation in neighborhood association meetings and forging partnerships with local merchants, farmers, roasters, brew masters and artisans of the communities which we thrive in.
Hotel Forty Five
Our hotel stands on the iconic corner of Cotton Avenue and Cherry Street. While the intersection creates an angle of 45 degrees, our name is also a nod to Macon’s musical past (45 records). We are the keeper of this iconic corner, the record of its greatness and the player of its stories.
If Macon’s soul is the heart of Georgia, this hotel is the heartbeat creating connections between locals and travelers that keep the rhythm steady. By embodying the spirit of an invested local, we contribute to furthering Macon’s atmosphere of friendship and familiarity.
Nothing here is an accident. From the very beginning, Macon was built on purposeful intersections because when people of different backgrounds and passions have a place to connect, the results are something special. Far more than a stop, this hotel is the hub of Macon’s rich stories, attractions, and a future filled with excitement.
The hotel will offer 94 gracious rooms and amenities include a rooftop bar, specialty restaurant, coffee bar, 2,000 square feet of meeting space and fitness center.
Who We Are
The hotel will be managed by Mainsail Lodging & Development, which was founded in 1999 by Joe Collier and Juli Corlew. The duo has grown Mainsail Lodging & Development from one lodging complex to a multi-faceted portfolio which includes the upper upscale brands of Autograph Collection Hotels and Tribute Portfolio, in addition to vacation rentals and a corporate housing business operating nationwide. Driven by the belief that each of our hotels should have a compelling story and seamlessly intertwine with the local community, Mainsail has learned to deliver inspiring experiences while cultivating a passionate following of advocates in each of their destinations. Hotel Forty Five will be this and more!
