Creating value in hotel real estate

The development of the collaborative economy contributes to new consumption patterns in the hotel sector. Traditionally organised according to the supply economy, the industry is now challenged by the requirements of a new demand-driven economy where digitalisation, tailor-made offers, flexibility and sustainability reign.

Attractive investment opportunities

Hotels are innovating to attract travellers whose expectations are changing. These shifting factors lead top investors—primarily in the United Kingdom, Germany and France—to be more selective with their investments as well as concentrate on the biggest travel destinations (e.g. seaside resorts, large capitals).

Whether they’re small independent hotels, large hotel chains, hotel residences, boutique hotels, golf resorts or spas, hotel real estate assets are characterised by their great diversity. The customer segment they target, the type of services they offer, and their locations are all parameters that make each hotel a unique asset. Hotels present attractive investment opportunities and offer numerous advantages compared to other real estate assets, including:

  • Portfolio diversification
  • Low vacancy rates
  • High long-term yields
  • Maximum use of space
  • Advantageous tax regime
