Developing or recapitalizing a hotel relies on location, density and more importantly sponsorship. We’ve seen the more prominent boutiques emerge as of late yet the trends for flags or signatures will continue to dominate as they encumber the country and continents with a consistent presence and relative services and amenities. Sourcing a potential hotel development site or an existing hotel for value can be more technical than sourcing perspective real estate development sites. At Equity READ, we have long standing relationships with some of the most prominent hoteliers, operators and brands. We start with initial site analysis to development feasibility with multi levered structures incorporating JVs and or flags.
