Hotel Valuation

Expert and professional reports

From single asset to portfolio’s spread across several countries, Horwath HTL’s Hotel Valuation experts will provide an independent, fair market valuation. We have experts with RICS and MAI accreditation who have been working in markets for many years and have a huge database of knowledge to draw on.

Hospitality assets, such as hotels and resorts, are complex real estate types, with significant land use value depending on their operational performance. Their performance is susceptible to greater market fluctuations, location issues, management sophistication and high capital investment than other real estate such as office or retail. Because of this, the valuation of hospitality assets requires a special market understanding and product expertise. Today, Horwath HTL is the leading industry expert retained by major hotel owners, lenders and operators to optimize their investment returns.

We employ a sophisticated Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) valuation approach recognized as the standard by investors in the hospitality industry. In our experience, sophisticated investors use replacement cost and sales comparisons only as secondary references. The DCF valuation process involves thorough review of the market, quantification of current and future market demand and most importantly, projection of a property’s potential future operating and financial performance based on assessment of its competitive attributes and characteristics. Discount rates based on prevailing investment trends and the weighted average costs of debt and equity are then applied to the projected net cash flows and aggregated to derive the property’s present value. Often, we also identify the potential upside opportunities associated with strategic repositioning through rebranding and/or capital improvements to derive a value reflecting an asset’s optimal performance.

Buyers, Investors and Fund Groups – for acquisition or disposal of single properties or portfolios
