chi-hilton rosemont (3) The Hilton Rosemont-Chicago near O’Hare Airport was part of a seven-hotel portfolio bought this year by Hong Kong-based Junson Capital for $800 million. Chinese buyers have been extremely active in the hotel market this year says JLL.

CHICAGO—In the first trimester of 2018, US hotel transaction volumes reached more than $11.9 billion – a 93% increase over last year, according to preliminary figures recently released by Chicago-based JLL. Investors were most interested in South FL and West Coast properties, including ones in Hawaii, resort properties, and portfolios of prime full-service hotels. The company partly attributes the buying spree to an acceleration in performance growth.
