Representatives of Colleges and Universities from across the country gathered at the Inn at Villanova University recently to discuss the state of the lodging industry. Participants included small liberal arts colleges like Williams College and Colby College, large Ivy League schools like Harvard, and state colleges such as the University of Virginia, Penn State, and the University of Ohio. Those that attended the symposium either owned hotels on their campus, or were interested in new hotel development. Prominent experts from management companies, including Pyramid Hotel Group, Charlestowne Hotels, Waterford Hotel Group, and Olympia offered in-depth presentations focusing on college hotels. The symposium also included a series of round table discussions where colleges and universities could learn more about deal structures and the relationship between hotels and their schools. The event was organized by Pinnacle Advisory Group, a national hotel consulting firm that specializes in both new development and asset management for college and university hotels.
Key Takeaways included the following:
New Development and Renovations
Managing the Relationship Between School and Hotel
