National Hotels Cap Rate Report

First quarter transactions point to a continuation of historically low hotel cap rates, but the lagging trends do not reflect the current post-COVID reality.  Record high RevPAR levels began a precipitous decline at the end of Q1 amid severe sector disruption caused by the pandemic. Upward cap rate pressure is expected in Q2, particularly in the Upper Upscale and Luxury segments and in Urban and Resort locations.
CBRE’s Valuation Cap Rate Reports include data compiled during the first quarter of 2020, when the potential adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were just beginning in the United States. CBRE Valuation & Advisory Services is dedicated to providing cap rate insights on a quarterly basis and benchmarking analytics based on historical data. We will continue to keep you apprised of the latest changes in market conditions throughout this unprecedented time.
