Lodging asset monitoring and asset management: Staying on target

Monitoring and managing hotels, conference centers, resorts and other lodging businesses require a particular base of knowledge and expertise that spans the arenas of management, marketing, payroll, energy, maintenance and capital. Accurate and timely information is essential to enhance the understanding and improve performance of the financial, operational, risk, value and physical status of hospitality assets. PwC's Hospitality & Leisure practice includes a group of specialists dedicated to providing lodging asset monitoring and asset management services to owners, financial institutions and institutional investors.

If this is your situation

  • A borrower has defaulted on its loan and you have foreclosed on their offshore resort property.
  • As an institutional investor, you have acquired a portfolio of hotels, widely spread across the country.
  • Your management company ended its relationship with your property, leaving line-level employees and middle managers, but no senior level direction.
  • You have started to feel pressure from investors as a result of deteriorating financial ratios.
