  • HOSPITALITY IS SYMBIOTIC WITH COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE • Employment and Office Demand – Hotels proximate to office buildings tend to capture corporate travelers – Density of office space in a market helps determine highest and best use of land for hotels – Last decade, ave. 318 sf of office space absorbed for every new job created, but in last 5 yrs, ave. decreased to 235 sf for every new job. – BUT….. Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu http://www.linkedin.com/in/sp0dvin
  • STATISTICAL CORRELATION • Ratio of office sf to total number of hotel rooms – Ratio of hotel rooms per 1,000 sf of net rentable office space ranged from only 0.21 to 0.23, w/ a mean of 0.22 • BUT…..

  • Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu http://www.linkedin.com/in/sp0dvin
  • THE SECRET SAUCE • Each job creates demand for 235 sf of office space • 16.6 sf of office space creates demand for 1 occupied room night • Thus, each new job generates demand for 14 room nights per annum Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu http://www.linkedin.com/in/sp0dvin
  • Relationship Between Office and Hotel Demand • Ratio of occupied hotel room to occupied office space ranges from only 0.058 to 0.064, with an average of 0.060. • Inverse of this ratio shows that for every 16.6sf of occupied office space, there was one hotel room occupied. • The range of the occupied RBA to occupied room nights was from 15.5 square feet to 17.2 square feet.

  • BAD SITUATION GETS WORSE FOR HOTELS • A rapidly growing number of hotels — including many high-end and luxury properties — are forced into bankruptcy or foreclosure in coming months, Martha C. White reported in The New York Times. • Jim Butler, a hotel industry lawyer, said those who manage distressed hotel loans have told him that their workloads have jumped tenfold in recent months. • “Things seem to be accelerating,” Mr. Butler said, and predicted that before the recession is over, the number of hotels in bankruptcy or foreclosure could rise above the 2,000 or so reached in the industry’s last big downturn in the 1990s. Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu
  • GAMBLING ON CASINO OPERATORS Hit by the twin blows of a recession and tight credit markets, many gaming companies have been squeezed hard. 1. Tropicana Entertainment filed for bankruptcy 2. STATION CASINOS -- Colony owns a 75% stake in Station Casinos Inc. while Crown owns a 19.6% interest in Fontainebleau Equity Holdings LLC. Both have Las Vegas properties 3. Trump Entertainment Resorts, of which Mr. Trump owns 28 per cent, filed for Chapter 11 protection at a court in New Jersey after bondholders who control the debt-laden casino operator rejected Mr Trump’s attempt to take the company private. Mr Trump has resigned from the board. 4. CITY CENTER--needs a combined $800 million contribution from both partners before it can access a $1.8 billion credit facility from lenders needed to finish construction. Australian billionaire and gambling magnate James Packer is weighing a stake in City Center, the troubled $8.6 billion Las Vegas development owned by MGM Mirage and Dubai World Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu http://www.linkedin.com/in/sp0dvin
  • LUXURY HOTELS TAKE A DIP INTO THE RED • Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas spent much of 2008 in Chapter 11 – recently sold to 3rd owner a year. • In Scottsdale, Ariz., 2 upscale properties entered foreclosure in Jan. after being open for ≤ 6 months • Greenbrier Resort in W.V. filed for Chapter 11 last month after losing $35 million in 2008. • In Chicago, plans for a 200-room Shangri-La hotel were scrapped.

  • VALUING HOTELS & RESORTS Three valuation techniques: 1. Income approach, 2. Cost approach, and 3. Sales-comparison approach. Scott L. Podvin: IMN’s Distressed Hotel Symposium -- April 30 – May 1, 2009 spodvin@post.harvard.edu http://www.linkedin.com/in/sp0dvin
  • HOTEL VALUATIONS For the income approach, we create at least three models: (a) A band of investment with 3-year net income build-up and an equity dividend; (b) Mortgage equity with a 10-year income projection and an equity yield; and (c) Overall rate derived from sales of comparable hotels. *10-year discounted cash-flow is the preferred technique, although in this environment cash flow forecasts are not that reliable. *Relying on sales of comparable hotels should be avoided since the true motivations of buyers and sellers are difficult to ascertain.

  • Hotel Management & Sub- Management Agreements Choosing the Brand – What is the market for the condominiums, fractional interests, condo-hotel units, yacht club membership interests, and dockominiums to be sold? – Which brand will fit best into the marketing plan? – Which brand would find the asset and its location most desirable? – How easy is the brand to deal with? – Which brand can be expected to deliver the highest RevPAR, given the character of the asset and its location? – Which brand can be expected to deliver the most for the money?

  • RISK vs. REWARD Big hotel operators: 1. IHG, 2. Hilton, 3. Marriott, and, 4. Accor, Reduce risk by selling hotels in exchange for long-term management agreements and/or franchise agreements, plus a small equity kicker (i.e. share of revenues). Scott L.

  • ASSET LIGHT VS. ASSET RIGHT • Starwood pursues a slightly nuanced asset disposal strategy to its peers. • While others have sold hotels and retained management contracts and franchising of its brands - a strategy known as asset light - Starwood has adopted an “asset right” approach, holding onto a slightly higher percentage of hotel assets.
