Our Story

We are a collective of passionate hoteliers focused on having fun, creating an amazingly empowered hotel team and assisting our hotel owners to maximize the value of their assets.

We started out in 2012 as Q Hospitality Management,  a boutique hotel + restaurant consulting company focused on unique and distinctive independent hotels. With the recent addition of our hotel management division, The Q Hotel Group, we continue to grow and innovate.

We focus on the management of unique and distinctive, independent hotels between 50-150 rooms.

We look for hotels that fit our “authentic experience” focus and hotels that are located in great destinations.

Recent projects under Q Hospitality Management (consulting division) include the opening of The Hotel Ballard, a small luxury hotel in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle & the re-opening of Semiahmoo Resort, an iconic PNW resort destination.

We are currently in early management discussions on additional PNW area hotel projects and have recently secured the management contract for the 112-year-old Captain Whidbey, a historic small luxury hotel located on Whidbey Island, WA.

In the Seattle area, we are in the re-development stage of Seattle’s well-known Lusty Lady building, transitioning it into a small luxury, 43-room hotel with multiple F&B experiences. This property is aiming to open in 2020 and will be managed by The Q Hotel Group.
