North Star Hotel Development is focused on consulting and Owner's Representation for those that need support with engaging brands, industry vendor selection, capital raise, deal structure, syndication, or the entitlement, permitting, and build out process.


What differentiates us from other developers is that our interest extends beyond a potential hotel site into the hospitality industry which spills over to economic development for the surrounding areas. Our mission is to collaborate with others to develop hotels that are welcomed by communities and bring value to the shareholder.

Sponsorship & Advocacy

A proud sponsor of the Silicon Valley Concierge Association and an active member of hospitality associations. Regularly attending industry events and participating in Legislative Action Summits provides the opportunity to learn about issues of importance to the industry so we can advocate on issues that matter to our business.

Proven Preferred Vendors

Preferred vendors with development experience that have historically worked well together means we swiftly move to a high performing team and shorten typical entitlement  and value add timelines.

Brand Relationships

What other developers may not have is our ongoing engagement and commitment to building relationships with the Directors of Development at corporate and franchise levels with leading hotel brands including Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, Radisson, IHG, Wyndham, Best Western, Choice, Accor, G6, and Red Lion along with international brands seeking to expand to America.
