We engaged HVS for Asset Management services and within 6 months they turned around our property performance and we were achieving significantly better RevPAR index scores. I would highly recommend HVS for advice and assistance in planning, developing, and operat[ing] a hotel.

Mike Harral, Vice President of Development Wilkinson Corporation

HVS has stood the test of time in the hotel industry. Our hotel investment partnerships go back to 1990, through good and not-so-good economies. Their team has the ability to do what it takes to make and keep each deal successful.

Dan Boeckermann, CPA, Investor

We are often asked by our clients who are making a change in management companies to provide names of potential operators that are both capable and reputable. Invariably, HVS Hotel Management is always at the top of our list. The team offers three qualities that we consider vitally important in recommending them: honesty, integrity, and creativity. There are very few people in the business that will always do the right thing for their clients. Kirby is one of them. And when it comes to turning a property around, his group really puts forth the effort. Their numerous successes are living proof.

Chuck Pinkowski, ISHC, Pinkowski & Company

We nominated HVS Hotel Management to be the Receiver in the most complex project we have ever foreclosed on. Their strategic advice along with their operational and marketing efforts helped resolve a lot of difficult issues. The Receiver’s Attorney they brought to the situation was also outstanding.

Randall Nay, Special Assets, Bank Midwest

Developing a relationship with HVS Asset Management has been one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career. The individuals at HVS Asset Management have the depth of knowledge and experience to solve difficult issues and maximize cash flow for their clients.
