La Vista Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center

Conference Center Hotel

Components: 257-room Hotel & Conference Center

SAG was engaged by the City of La Vista, NE to help negotiate a public-private partnership for the development of a hotel and conference center. The City of La Vista, Nebraska was engaged in pre-development discussions with the John Q. Hammons hotel company to build the city’s first hotel.  To help them understand the potential risks and rewards of the project, the City of La Vista hired SAG early in the process.  Although the deal structure changed from its original public-private partnership to a more private development model, the City shared in some land costs for the 40,000 square foot conference center and associated parking.  The hotel opened in 2008.
