Image-Main-contentThe rise and rise of alternatives to traditional hotel accommodation is changing the investment landscape for what had been a specialised and exclusive real estate segment. Hotel Analyst, the definitive source of information for hotel investors for more than a decade, is launching a new event to highlight the issues.

New accommodation types – such as capsule hotels, hostels and serviced apartments – are emerging as direct threats to hotels. Other traditionally separate asset classes such as student accommodation, timeshare and the private rented sector are entering the short-term letting space as well.

The new threats are being facilitated by the sharing economy as websites like Airbnb and Housetrip enable the emerging accommodation providers to cost effectively market to a wide audience of potential guests.

Sharing Economy and The Hotel Industry 2017

HDE Report Cover
There are growing signs of convergence in tourist accommodation. Airbnb increasingly mirrors the operational model of professionally managed accommodation providers through offering tailored services, distinguishing between different grades of lodging, providing guarantees on its listings’ quality, as well as progressively eliminating private individual amateurs from the supply chain. Meanwhile, the big hotel chains have responded to the challenge of the ‘sharing economy’ by acquiring operators in the sector or through issuing new brands and concepts which attempt to appeal to the supposed tastes of millennial customers through offering ‘local’ experiences to guests.
