HVS Presents the 2009 Hotel Valuation Index (HVI)
An overview of historical movements and forecasts of anticipated trends for the U.S. hospitality industry
The dizzying pace of declining hotel values has left industry participants in limbo. When will the downward spiral end? When will markets recover, and by how much? How do we even value hotels in today’s uncertain times? Are the good times of recent years past gone for good?
Co-authored by Emily U. Smith, Neel M. Lund, and Steve Rushmore, the 2009 HVI provides a review of historical movements and forecasts of anticipated trends for the U.S. hospitality industry. We first revisit the fateful consequences of the crumbling banking system upon the U.S. economy, and government attempts to plug the leak. We then analyze the impact of the recession upon lodging demand and compare these trends to prior periods of recession. Next, we look at how to value hotels in today’s credit-dry environment. We then present the 2009 HVI, with historical values, forecasts, and discussions on notable markets.
