• Deal volume rising

Hotel transaction volumes are expected to rise 15% this year to USD68bn, with half the volume in the Americas region. Asian money, and in particular outbound Chinese capital, will drive the growth, predicts JLL in its investment outlook.

The availability of debt is expected to improve, while private equity funds are flush with cash they need to deploy. Hotel values in Asia have already surpassed those of the previous peak, while European properties still offer more upside potential.
