CSK hotels was started by Chris Whitt, Storm Nolan, and Kane Whitt in 2002 with the purchase of their first hotel property. It was an extension of Whitt Properties which managed the real estate investments of Chris Whitt since the 1980’s.

Since 2002, CSK hotels has owned and managed 15 hotel projects from Florida to Tennessee to Arkansas, in addition to retail centers, self storage facilities, convenience stores, industrial warehouses, and many more.

Our Philosophy

PKF Hospitality Research® says that 75% of a hotel’s performance is related to the market. The other 25% is driven by the property and management.

Impact On Property Value

Our vision is doing our absolute best to maximize the value of a property by pursuing excellence within that controllable 25%.

We do this by remembering the fundamentals of hotel management:

  • Keep the property clean and well-maintained
  • Offer memorable guest service
  • Be proactive in driving revenue

It sounds very simple, but delivering on these core principles consistently separates the mediocre to good management companies from the great management companies.
