Within each tier, costs are separated into the categories of Guestrooms; Guest Bathrooms; Guestroom Corridors; Public Areas; Food & Beverage Outlets; Function Space; Recreational Facilities; and Infrastructure.

“It is important that renovation costs be updated each year to provide decision-makers with quality, up-to-date hotel renovation costs,” said Jonathan C. Nehmer, president of Jonathan Nehmer + Associates and HVS Design. “Our extensive experience in hotel renovations gives us a thorough understanding of the renovation budgeting process, and our extensive network of contractors, purchasing agents, installers, and manufacturers provides us with verification of the cost data that we have included in this Guide.” In addition to providing Architecture, Interior Design, and Project Management services, JN+A is a leader in due diligence and Property Condition Assessments, for which budgets and capital expenditure planning are of utmost importance.
