It appears that the hotel industry has at least bottomed and lately has seen rising revenues in many markets. Values are down 40%-50% from the 2007 peak and they have barely begun to rise yet. The decline of 19% peak to trough of Revpar was the worst in history of the US. In short, it appears we are at the bottom of the worst downturn hotels has ever experienced and it is the right time to be getting back in so long as you understand this is not a quick hit, but a 4-5 year cycle play.

Unlike office and retail, which are still suffering space reductions by major tenants and rent reductions which will last several years due to the longer leases, hotels can turn on a dime, good or bad. If you believe that this is the bottom, or even close to it, then hotels offer a better return than office or retail, and residential over the near term. The investors who will harvest high returns, are those who team up with top quality highly experienced managers, who have the cash to fund PIPs-renovations.
