About us

Andrew and Sarah picAndrew Sangster and Sarah Sangster, Owners of Hotel Analyst

Andrew Sangster, a leading financial journalist who has spent his career reporting on the sector, launched his news service over 10 years ago. A decade later and it is viewed as the key title in the hotel investment arena. Sarah a trained Chartered Psychologist came on board in 2013 to look beyond the news service to deliver and share high quality information. Sarah and Andrew now have three successful high level seminar type events, a niche they identified and wanted to fill in the industry.

“Our aim is to be the intellectual hub in the hotel investment industry. We aim to do this through our news service, reports and events” says Andrew. Hotel Analyst has recently linked up with OTA Insight, Colliers International and a Fellow from the London School of Economics to develop The Hosted Accommodation Investment Returns Index. You can find out more here. The Hosted Accommodation Investment Returns Index will be published quarterly. The first Index will published at the end of November.

What Hotel Analyst has to offer:

Hotel Analyst News Analysis Service

A subscription to Hotel Analyst news analysis service, comprises of three things: a newsletter published four times a year (Hotel Analyst newsletter), a daily email summarising the news (HA Daily) and a weekly web-based online news service (HA Perspective Online). Both are supplied within the one subscription price of £650(+ VAT).
