  • Mr. Gregory Mount, Founder, the Victory Hotel Group
  • Ms. Suzanne Mellen, MAI, CRE, FRICS, ISHC, Senior Managing Director – Practice Leader, HVS

According to Anne R; Lloyd-Jones and Suzanne Mellen of HVS: “The volume of hotel transactions and the price paid for individual assets are influenced by two principal factors: the availability of capital and the performance of the lodging sector as a whole.”

With lenders having their “pencils down” they further opine, “Given the lending freeze, the transactions that are likely to occur will reflect capitalization and discount rates above historic averages, given the high level of uncertainty, as well as low-leverage or all cash transactions. Once hotel performance bottoms out and assets come to market, well-capitalized buyers will be in a position to acquire hotels at prices well below both replacement cost and recent norms, creating an opportunity for high returns.”
