Horwath Hotel, Tourism & Leisure (HTL) is the world’s largest and most experienced hospitality consulting brand. With over 40 years’ experience, Horwath HTL Caribbean and Central America has carried out hundreds of successful market and financial studies, and valuations for public and private clients. Our highly specialized knowledge and global reach make us the number one option for companies and financial institutions looking to invest and develop in the hotel, tourism and leisure industry.
We provide a comprehensive market and financial feasibility study for an independent profitability review of a hotel project. The study serves as a pre-requisite and tool for the selection of a hotel operator and brand, architectural planning, preliminary construction cost calculation, building permit application, and potential investors.
Arriving at a realistic value for commercial and hotel real estate is a challenging task and is almost impossible to so without the appraiser’s capacity to apply the adequate valuation method. In the case of hotels, the application of discounted cash flow method (DCF) rather than market value, in many cases protects investors from implausible and/or inconsistent views and pre-conclusions. Our team includes both experienced appraisers and valuers with RICS accreditation.
The goal of every owner is to increase or at least maintain the value of their property. Understanding what strategies and management practices result in increased cash flow and value is essential. KPI analysis and benchmarking, ensuring contractual agreements of a management or lease contract are adhered to and implemented, examination of reserves for CapEx/FF&E (replacement investments), representation of the owner's interests in important contract negotiations, are all part of the complex yet precise and challenging role we provide.
