Hotel deal volumes rocketed 50% to $85 billion in 2015, boosted by a record proportion of cross-border capital and single asset transactions.

I​n all, 53 hotels sold for over $600,000 per room last year, which reflects the high levels of confidence and capital in the hospitality sector. Activity in 2016 will be more measured, with fewer headline-grabbing 'trophy' properties on the market.

Hotel values will continue to rise, with secondary markets providing the most fertile investment landscape. RevPAR is projected to grow by 4-5% globally this year. Consolidation, single assets, and secondary markets are set to be the big stories in 2016​. ​
