Known for a legacy of excellence with a heart for development.

Built on Experience.

McKibbon Places began with its people.

Founded by two brothers in 1926, the McKibbon family business has grown to become an industry leader in hospitality, known for owning, developing, managing, and renovating hotels in partnership with the largest hotel franchisors in the world.

Why McKibbon Places?


With dozens of managed new build and renovation projects under our belts, our team has the experience and understanding to overcome any challenges our industry faces in hotel development and renovations. Whether building a prototypical hotel or a boutique hotel, our team and partners are prepared and ready to bring your vision to life from concept drawings to opening day.

Strategic Relationships

Relationships are key to our business. And our commitment to building strategic relationships means our clients know they can rely on us, just as we know we can rely on our designers, contractors, franchisor, and procurement partners. It’s a proven approach that enables us to build truly rewarding experiences—for clients and guests alike.


We partner with our hotel owners to evaluate the market and find design opportunities to maximize value for the guest, the hotel operations, and the overall investment.

Innovation & Technology

Our team is always on the cutting edge of innovation and technology. Whether adopting efficient project management processes or studying new construction technology to complete your hotel project more efficiently, we are always looking to find better ways to implement our development processes.


Of course, our team’s background stems from hotel construction and renovation, but we also have backgrounds in architecture, hotel operations, and hospitality FF&E procurement. This gives us a well-rounded perspective from all angles to better deliver the most value to your project.

Our History

After years of developing our own hotels, we realized an opportunity to create a new kind of development company: one entirely focused on helping other hotel owners realize their unique visions using our proven approach. Today, McKibbon Places is proud to help our clients stay ahead while keeping guests coming back.

There’s a difference between developing a property, and creating a place.

We are that difference.

Properties are buildings, floors, rooms. Places are where something meaningful happens – where people go to have an experience worth seeking – and sharing again and again. That’s what we create.

That’s why we’re McKibbon Places.
