Our real estate expertise encompasses all aspects of the hotel acquisition, development and management process – including financing, market research and analysis, design and construction, marketing and asset repositioning, property maintenance and property management. What’s more, we have the business relationships, access to capital and human resources necessary to turn great investment opportunities into realities.
Our fully integrated, multi-disciplinary capabilities enable us to undertake any hospitality project that interests us, plus realize cost-efficiencies and economies of scale that are critical to ROI. With our in-house talent, for example, we build new developments for carefully selected markets from the ground up. We also acquire choice, under-performing and/or under-valued hotel assets that we profitably turnaround through prudent capital improvements, market repositioning and intensive property management. Our skills additionally enable us to fully execute third-party construction and management contracts. With every stage of every project, we take a hands-on approach to ensure its ultimate success.
Perhaps most importantly, we know when to buy, when to hold and when to sell in order to maximize the financial return on our investments. We have the long-experience and necessary resources to actively invest in the market if the timing is right, as well as the discipline to sit on the sidelines if returns are too low to accomplish our goals.
“The expertise and follow-through that Chartwell Hospitality provides in all aspects of the development process is exemplary. We feel as if we’re a financial partner with the company rather than simply a lender.”
