Investor confidence in hotel sector increases

by Sara Kassabian


Despite the uncertainties of the global economy in 2012, investors have more confidence in the hotel sector this year, according to a survey in the Ernst & Young 2013 Global Hospitality Report.

“The positives have increased, and the negatives have declined during fourth quarter 2012, and most people have a stable-to-positive outlook for 2013,” says Troy Jones, principal of transaction services at Ernst & Young.

Hotel transactions totaled 4.7 percent of global real estate transactions, or $25.9 billion, in 2012. The U.S. market was the most liquid real estate transaction market, and approximately half of the total hotel investments were in the United States.
