About Us

Industry Leadership

Straightline Advisors is the consulting arm of Straightline Hospitality Corporation, a business entity of hospitality industry veteran Kenneth Free and his business partners.  In Straightline, Mr. Free has created a focused firm that targets a limited number of high quality engagements in the Company’s areas of specialty- real estate development advisory services for hotels, resorts, shared ownership resorts, and related property types.  By preference, Straightline is a small firm with a selective client list.  Client properties are typified by their size, quality or prominence and may be located anywhere in the world.  It is the intent of Mr. Free, as leader of the firm, to add value in most instances through direct management of the assignment.  In these cases, he acts as both client contact and manager in charge of task accomplishment.  In some instances, qualified cooperating experts are assigned to engagements, ensuring their timely accomplishment.  The company is also usually in a position to affiliate with Big Four public accounting firms or other widely respected consulting companies when required by the client to provide either imprimatur, certification of best practices, or broad footprint.

The Company, through its affiliated and separately licensed Straightline Real Properties Group, also offers real estate brokerage services for hotels and resorts.

Straightline is incorporated within California and operates from headquarters in Thousand Oaks, between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.  Straightline also has an office in Beijing, China which is dedicated to its assignments in the Peoples Republic.
