HOFTEL is the world's leading association of hotel property investors - the only one which is both international and multi-operator.
Why was it established? Because hotel property investors are the groups which provide most of the capital for the sector, but are much less well recognised by investors, trade journalists and the general public than the big management/branded groups - and are sometimes less experienced in the sector and less powerful. However, the sector has been institutionalising quickly and can only benefit from greater visibility and coherence. HOFTEL seeks to accelerate this process. We provide an association and a forum for hotel real estate companies which receive rents or pay management fees as well as for hotel franchisees who both own and manage properties, but pay a third party to provide the brand and marketing. Our members range from multi-nationals to single-hotel companies and include institutional investors, private entrepreneurs and asset managers.
