HVS shares the first issue of the Middle East Hotel Valuation Index (HVI) which provides insight on regional values and investment opportunities.
By Hala Matar Choufany
The Hotel Valuation Index is a hotel valuation benchmark developed by HVS. It monitors annual percentage changes in the values of typical four-star and five-star hotels. The HVI combines the various factors affecting the economy and region at large with hotel-market specific demand and supply dynamics to derive indicative values and future growth trends. For this first edition of the HVI Middle East, we have analyzed 14 key hotel markets in the Middle East with a total inventory of approximately 175,000 rooms in the four-star and five-star market. Additionally, our index allows us to rank each market relative to the Middle East average as well as Asia and Europe averages.
