Amistad Partners prides itself on engaging with partners who are experts and specialists in the hotel industry, which means that clients get the tailored representation services they deserve.

Rick Schultheis, VP of Sales and Hotel Development EMEA of Amistad Partners, has no doubt that this will be a great partnership for both Amistad Partners and The Hotels Consulting Company. “Through our joint network, AP offers The Hotels Consulting Company augmented international sales, marketing, and distribution capabilities as well as our high-in-demand revenue management support for their partner hotels. At the same time, having worked with more than 900 hotels, The Hotels Consulting Company will certainly enhance Amistad Partners’ bespoke approach to representation and consulting services.”

THCC’s core objective is to support clients in optimising financial results and profitability through flexible external interventions, guaranteeing a result by integrating the latest technologies. We are the first platform that is designed to empower hoteliers and assist on all the operational and managerial needs of independent hotels.
