The hotel industry has undergone fundamental structural changes over the last two decades. Hotels are now owned by a diverse range of investors, while operators much prefer to focus on management only. As industry specialist we provide services that fill the gap of knowledge and experience in full array of hotel project, development and successful operational needs.
Our Principal and Consultants are industry leaders in the hospitality sector with proven credentials in hotel development, operations, finance, project management and investment advisory. We bring real hotel experience to projects, thereby maximizing benefits to owners. Our services are fully custom tailored to the needs of the project as we believe expensive and large assets are unique and there is not one solution that fits all.
