The International Network of Hospitality Consulting Professionals

A Globally Networked Organization

Virtually all Cayuga members have graduated from some of the world’s most respected hospitality schools, with the majority of our members holding degrees from The Cornell School of Hotel Administration.

Each of our consultants has held ownership, executive, and senior level positions within the vast hospitality business, and also in related industries such as real estate, development, financial services, engineering and design. Our seasoned professionals have provided services in more than 100 countries, with many spending extended periods developing strong relationships and understanding of a variety of cultures and languages.

Cayuga Hospitality consultants work independently with our clients from proposal through final project presentation and implementation, and every client has direct and immediate access to their Cayuga consultant. Given our consultants experience, they understand how to manage their assignments with the least possible interruption of an ongoing business, working effectively and efficiently with the assigned client team, and delivering superior high-impact work product to fulfill our client needs and expectations.

Owners, Investors, Operators, and Senior Executives across the Industry have come to rely on Cayuga Hospitality Consultants experience, innovative thought, and industry-leading resources for both domestic and international assignments.
