Our service proposition

We become the hotel consulting advisors in our clients’ projects and transactions

What makes our hotel consulting approach so different?

We come from the hotel sector

The reason we can advise hotel owners is because we have previously managed hotel properties and departments in large hotel chains.

Senior team

We bring decades of experience in the hotel sector and we do not delegate our work to junior staff.

We are in the market

Because of our size, we are more agile and flexible. It is much easier for us to obtain the market intelligence our clients need for their projects.

More competitive fees

We don’t pass on overheads into our projects so our fees are always lower than the competition.

Our hotel consulting values

Hotel consulting firm PHG combines a unique vision of the equity and deb markets with a deep understanding of the hotel and real estate industries. We put forward a portfolio of services that goes beyond mere hospitality consulting or advisory services.

International listed companies have been relying on PHG's hotel consulting services for years
