With Europe undergoing a period of prolonged economic and political uncertainty, the CBRE Hotels European Investor Intentions Survey aims to give hotel property stakeholders useful insight into the capital deployment plans of investors in hotel real estate. In doing so, we hope to provide a clearer picture of the future shape of the regional hotel investment market.

  • This year’s European Investor Intentions Survey was answered by 336 real estate investors, all of whom have a significant interest in the hotel asset class.
  • We were encouraged to find that an overwhelming majority of survey respondents intend to invest either the same or more capital into hotel real estate in 2018, compared with 2017.
  • With all indicators pointing to another strong year for European hotel investment in 2018, we seek to answer the key question: which European hotspots will come to the fore?
