Buying & selling hotels
Drawing on a wealth of knowledge of the commercial property market, our hotels team has helped many clients in successful hotel transactions.
We advise the owners or shareholders of privately owned establishments, and also high net worth investors looking to expand their real estate portfolios by buying property in the leisure sector such as operating hotels or properties suitable for conversion.
A particular strength is our extensive experience of negotiating with funders on such projects. We then work with our clients to project-manage the deal from the bidding stage through to completion of the purchase and beyond.
We advise hoteliers throughout Europe, the UK and US. We act for corporate buyers and sellers and individuals who may be buying one-off hotels or be in the process of building a branded hotel group.
