Transitional Transactions: Hotel brokers, investors prepare for a new normal

Lodging Leaders podcast by Jonathan Albano

Lou Plasencia was interviewed for a podcast posted on January 22, 2020. The audio is available on the Lodging Leaders website, and on the various streaming services linked at the bottom of this page.

Industry analysts we interviewed expect 2020 to be an even busier period of hotel investment in part because private investors will continue to recycle their capital and shop for places to stash their cash. This episode of Lodging Leaders takes a look at the history of hotel transactions last year as well as the whole past decade, including the growth of REITs, the emergence of private equity and the expansion of ownership groups that aggressively grew their portfolios with branded select-service assets. We also explore what might lie ahead this year as hotels in many major markets experience a slowdown in business.
