“We have worked with a large number of hotel developers and found Mr. Wong among a select few, who has the ability to understand the needs of the investment banking community, communicate the same to the client and translate our investment criteria, net income and costs of the project into a detailed pro-forma.”

“Senior management of Hyatt has worked with Mr. Wong for more than a decade and found him to be an experienced and competent hotel developer. Personally, I have found Mr. Wong to be a highly regarded real estate professional, who has had more than two decades of hotel development experience and someone who knows the hotel development business.”

Senior Vice President
Hyatt Development Corporation

“Francis A. Wong is well known to Bill Marriott, Chairman of Marriott International, Inc. and has been for over twenty years. He is pictured with Mr. Marriott in his autobiography and the same picture recently featured in a Marriott ad is USA Today. During the past few years we have worked with him on a number of Marriott projects, including negotiations to purchase a regional hotel chain, the acquisition and conversion of an office building to a Marriott hotel in downtown San Francisco and responding to the RFP for the SanFrancisco Airport. It is without reservation that I recommend Mr. Wong as a knowledgeable and experienced real estate professional.”

James M. Erlacher
Vice President of Hotel Development
Marriott International Inc.

“While Park Georgia Group is an experienced real estate developer, we found that the expertise and experience of Mr. Wong complemented well our human resources. Accordingly Mr. Wong is handling personally most matters related to the development of the hotel (Hyatt Regency Whistler Resort) and we have found Mr. Wong to be competent, creative and responsive.”

Ernest Hui
Managing Director
The Park Georgia Group

“While Concert is a full service real estate company owned by 27 British Columbia pension funds, we have limited experience in developing hotels. Since our entry into this area, we have relied almost exclusively on the experience and expertise of Mr. Wong. We found Mr. Wong to be competent, efficient and professional and look forward to working with him in the future.”
