Experiencia en Consultoría

A well-rounded approach to a hotel appraisal or feasibility study requires objectivity—reveal an existing or proposed hotel’s strengths and opportunities, and bring to light any potential pitfalls. Luigi Major, MAI, Managing Director and Senior Partner of HVS Houston, has worked on appraisal and consulting assignments for more than 600 hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean. His reports have helped build hotels, secure loans for hotel renovations and transactions, and guide plans for a wide variety of hotel ventures. That his conclusions have held up under scrutiny and his recommendations so often come to fruition speaks to Luigi’s standards for objectivity, organization, and analysis. His passion for the business of hotels speaks for itself, and you can rest assured that this complement of qualities will deliver the most comprehensive, insightful, and well-supported conclusions about your hotel.

Luigi graduated from the University of Houston’s Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management. He joined the HVS Dallas office in 2007 and also worked with HVS Mexico to conduct hotel assignments throughout the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean including work on several large-scale, international hotel portfolios and mixed-use developments. Having a passion for market research and analysis, Luigi has authored seven articles on performance trends and dynamics of hotel markets in Texas and Latin America. He is a Designated Member (MAI) of the Appraisal Institute.

In his free time Luigi enjoys playing tennis, running, CrossFit, learning French, and attending events in his hometown of Houston. He also loves to read. Living in Venezuela as a child left Luigi with an appreciation of Latin culture (as well as an undying accent), and travel continues to fulfill his desire to learn from new places and people.
