The Team

Independent Hotel Group started off years ago representing hundreds of the best independent hotels in the nation. In the past decade we’ve morphed into a full-service search firm with dedicated staffers who quickly get your RFP out and get your answers back.

We are “old school” in that we answer our phones and don’t use internet-based “fill-in-the-blank” RFP processes, instead going directly to our longstanding contacts in the industry. In addition to our loyal hotel contacts, we’ve maintained our independent hotel knowledge base, so our clients are assured that every potential hotel will be included in the RFP process, giving us the best opportunity to find the greatest value for your meeting.



Kevin Wolski is president of Independent Hotel Group and has been in the business for more than 15 years. He graduated in 1989 from UC Davis with a double major in economics and communications.
