Hotel Lawyers’ updates on capital and debt markets for hotels, transaction sales data and financings

David Loeb from RW Baird always provides such interesting hotel data. In his excellent presentation at Meet the Money®, he gave us the latest industry data showing:

  • How REITs have dominated the transaction market (more than 80% of the transactions year-to-date in 2011)
  • What’s happening in the debt markets now with yields going below 9%
  • How hotel stock investments have fared compared to other investments
  • What is happening with IPOs and IPO pipeline

And when you are studying his presentation slides, don’t stop at what looks like the end, because he has great stuff in his “Appendix: Transaction Tables.” As David said, think of this this as a “free bonus” with detailed information on:

  • Selected hotel sales data
  • Loan details on originations and refinancings
  • Equity raises
