What Our Clients Say

What Our Clients Say

When we needed a truly iconic brand and partner for our new 4-star hotel in Minnesota, we turned to Kirk and his extensive hospitality experience and contacts. Kirk and his team connected us and helped formulate a joint venture with the Rowlings Family and Omni Hotels, who has become the perfect partner for the Omni Viking Lakes Hotel opening in October, 2020.
