Hotel Development & Pre-Opening Services

Hotels are different from other types of real estate investments primarily due to their daily occupancy and revenue fluctuations, the requirement for specialized management, and labor intensity. Understanding the cyclical nature and dynamics of hotel markets are critical to good investment decision-making. An initial analysis of market and financial feasibility is perhaps the most important aspect in hotel investment decision-making.

Our hotel consulting staff has years of experience in hotel development and operations management. The hotel consulting services we provide are unique for each project we undertake, and are therefore tailored to meet each client’s individual needs.
