Hospitality Accounting Team

Our team has managed hotels such as the 257 room Headquarters Plaza Hotel located in Morristown, New Jersey and the 175 Suite Stanhope Hotel located in NYC.

We have managed Holiday Inns such as the 232 room Holiday Inn at Newark International Airport. We have won “The Inn of the Year” award from Choice Hotels, out of over 1500 hotels, for the 240 room “Quality Inn” located in Philadelphia at the Airport.

We have worked on financially distressed properties and have put plans together to transform these properties into viable profitable properties with the ability to sell them at fair value. Our team members have been trained both in Europe and the United States and some of our associates are multilingual.

We are available to assume the responsibility of opening hotels that are under construction. We can develop the staffing guide, set up hiring, arrange the move in and opening and then turn the property over to the manager we hired. We will then supervise him for a period of time to assure a smooth beginning.

We have relationships with very experienced hospitality consultants such as HVS International, CB Richard Ellis, and Cushman Wakefield when a Feasibility Study, Appraisal or Market Study is required. We work with several legal firms that have considerable experience in Real Estate and Hotels and Certiorari Firms to protest your Assessed Valuations when necessary. Hotels are considered operating business’s and therefore a distinction is made between the real estate and the operations to determine the assessed value. We also work with Engineering firms to develop Cost Segregation Studies for improved results in writing off fixed assets.

When you have a need, give us a call. We will respond quickly.
