Hotel Asset Management

Session Focus

Increasingly, hotels are owned by firms who see their hotels as part of an investment portfolio. These financial owners have motivations that are different from the traditional hotelier. Asset management is a new reality in hotel management, with owners and their asset managers becoming increasingly active in directing their investments through the asset management process. To be successful, you need to understand the orientation, skill sets, and objectives of financial owners and be able to work with their asset managers to achieve the owner’s goals.
