As the busy summer season begins to wind down, it’s a good time to take a look around your property and survey the wear and tear. Most major metropolitan cities have seen an increase in occupancy this season. As the hospitality industry begins to slowly recover, it’s time to look at your preventive maintenance schedule, your linen PAR levels, and dust off those plans to renovate your guestrooms and lobby areas. According to PKF research, occupancy levels are expected to increase over the next year. So if you are looking to increase your property’s revenue, you will want to make sure all your rooms are functioning, and replace any items that were cannibalized from other guestrooms last year. Some properties had to close off floors or wings of their property in order to cut costs in 2009, but as travelers begin to loosen their belts and get ready to spend again, you do not want to be caught off guard with nonfunctioning rooms.
The sales price represents a capitalization rate of 7.7 percent on the hotel's net operating income for the trailing 12 months ended March 31, 2016.
