"A Giant amongst Hoteliers! Not just in size, but in his knowledge, conviction, and passion for what he does. The amount of thought, care, and preciseness Anton puts into everything he does, I haven’t seen before in another. Anton gives 100%, 100% of the time, then still has more to give unconditionally. Management and staff alike see and know this, which in turn motivates and inspires all who work for him!"

Hotel Manager

"Michelle is one of my go-to thought partners and sounding boards whenever I have a difficult business decision to make or am pondering a leadership conundrum. She is thoughtful, strategic, supportive, and caring. She's able to take in lots of complex information and give guidance grounded in sound business acumen, coupled with a deep appreciation for the human elements of work. She provides keen insights into business operations and management, yet never strays from her values which put people first."

Nicole Cushman

Nonprofit Consultant

"Anton is truly one of the best when it comes to being a hotelier. He understands what it takes to make a successful hotel and that a well balanced scorecard is key. His skills in the industry and compassion for those he works with set him above most others in the level of professionalism he projects. Any ownership or managment company would be very lucky to have Anton be a part of their team."
