Are you aware of the full range of alternative strategies for dealing with troubled hotels? Does your lawyer provide you with analytical tools to help you identify, evaluate and select from a full range of options? Do you know how to recognize the crucial points where the wrong decision can give away more than half the value of a hotel?

We cover these critical issues — and much more — in our new, comprehensive, 98-page book, The Lenders Handbook for Troubled Hotels. Distilled from experts who have more than 1,000 bankruptcies, receiverships and workouts under their belts and more than 20 years of experience, you will find the handbook useful as a permanent resource that you can refer to time and again.

And you can get your copy for FREE! (see download link below)

Practical guidance from Hotel Lawyers: The Lenders Handbook for Troubled Hotels

Although created with lenders and investors in mind, the handbook is an invaluable resource for anyone with a troubled hotel asset.

The book provides all the essentials as well as advanced techniques for dealing with troubled hotels. Most importantly, although the subject matter can be very complex, The Lenders Handbook offers straight forward, practical advice and the analytical tools are easy to use.

The Lenders Handbook explains:

  • Why hotels are so different than other troubled assets
  • How the hotel operating business is critical to the value of the asset and your recovery
  • Why failure to recognize certain crucial decision points can give away more than half the value of a hotel

It also addresses Hotel Franchise and Management Agreements — how keeping or getting rid of a brand or operator can be one of the biggest factors in your hotel asset value.
It also includes two innovative, proprietary approaches that hotel lawyers in JMBM’s Global Hospitality Group® have developed to enhance value in troubled hotels:

  • The SAVE® program (Strategies and Approaches for Value Enhancement)
  • The Enhanced Note Sale™

There is a lot more in The Lenders Handbook — too much to cover here — including:

  1. Two special “speed bumps” in hotel bankruptcies
  2. How to restructure troubled condo hotels
  3. Why closing that hotel may be the worst money-saving idea you ever had
