My name is Allison Kneubuhl and I help hotel and resort owners, asset managers and operators identify their marketing and sales goals whether it’s for underperforming assets, new builds, or repositioning. Together, we identify strategic objectives to achieve clear, measurable results.  Then I come up with a plan to nail those goals and objectives.

The bottom line? I help you improve your hotel’s bottom line. Just like that.

I am passionate about hospitality. I learned the craft of sales and marketing early in my career from the best names in the business: Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and Regent International Hotels.


Operating a consultancy for almost two decades, I have advised some of the most well-known and celebrated independent luxury hotels and resorts including San Ysidro Ranch, Carneros Inn, Sea Island Resort, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, Koa Kea Resort, and Kona Village. To name a few.

I have another overwhelming passion. The exquisite allure of a beautifully designed hotel lobby. The well-deserved indulgence that is room service after a long trip, and the social graces of a courteous staff that believes in where they work and live.

I believe in the luxury of extraordinary travel experiences. From the people you meet to the places you choose to stay.

And I work with clients to develop long-term relationships built on trust, integrity, professionalism, results, and a dose of moxie. . . identifying whatever the property needs to differentiate itself from other hotels. I come in as a consultant and stay on as a partner because I get results. It’s what I do.

The best of the best!

To say that Allison is a "marketing consultant" is like calling the Great Pyramid a pile of stones. Allison brings an incredibly unique perspective to all of the projects we've worked on together, as she combines the "art", "strategy" and "operational" skills to implement any marketing initiative with precision and grace. As far as integrity, communication skills, organizational approach, industry expertise, to this day I haven't met a single individual that possesses all of these skills in a friendly, results driven manner. Simply put, Allison is the best of the best!

I would hire Allison again!

It has been a pleasure to have retained Allison at three of our resorts this year in Jackson Hole, WY, Lake Geneva, WI and Lake Arrowhead, CA. Her professionalism as a task force Director of Sales & Marketing allowed us to continue the sales and marketing effort in these distinct properties as we searched for permanent Directors. With Allison’s keen abilities to manage her team members and continue momentum in coaching sales skills and account management along with moving the marketing effort forward through our CRM, e-commerce, PR and vendor partners, we were able to maintain the effort while not losing a beat. I absolutely will retain Allison again when the next opportunity arises.”

-Ted Davis I Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of Benchmark Hospitality International

A great resource...

Allison was a tremendous help in getting our hotel ramped up recently after we purchased, closed and reopened to the public. She found unique was to position our hotel within our competitive set that set us apart and helped us to quickly ramp up our occupancy and move our rates faster than we had been. She also brought us some of the best resources for marketing and PR. til 2010.

She got right to the heart of the problem.

Allison was highly recommended to me from a colleague I greatly respect. Her work on the transformation of a hotel I was tasked to turn around, was nothing short of a miracle. She got right to the heart of the problem and within days understand and directed the path forward. We went from 17% occupancy to 80% within a few months. Truly miraculous! Allison is the real deal, and I look forward to hiring her again in the near future.
