The hotel investment industry, while still strong, has shown some caution signs. Many major markets have surpassed high-watermark levels experienced in 2007 and most hotel investors assess that we are somewhere where near the cyclical peak. The debt markets backed away in January and February due to uncertainty in the financial markets, which resulted in many re-trades or canceled deals. Coupled with the growing threat of new supply, some see a 5% to 10% pricing correction. That said, most operators remain bullish with 2016 RevPAR forecast to increase 3% to 5%, indicating that the concerns may be unfounded.

Other factors that affect the market:

  • While returns seem low compared to historical averages, hospitality investments offer comparably high returns relative to other real estate segments (eg. multi-family, office, retail, etc).
  • Supply of hotels for sale is low compared to the amount of capital searching for deals.
  • Most brand families are offering new ways to affiliate, retain unique property characteristics and appeal to new or emerging customers (eg. lifestyle, millennials, wellness, etc).

In summary, market performance fundamentals remain strong and appear to have a stronger foundation compared to past cycles - a good sign for continued prosperity. We believe that investment opportunity is created for some investors when other investors elect to sit on the sidelines. It is a good time to sell if you are an owner that has been waiting for years to find liquidity, and it’s a good time to buy if you are looking for solid investments with strong yield and growth potential.
