China Puts Billions of Dollars in U.S. Hotel Investments

Bharat Lall serves as the CEO of Pinnacle Hotels USA. An established authority in hotel investment, Bharat Lall has over two decades of experience from which he draws remarkable insights into the industry.

Chinese corporations have expended $5 billion in U.S. hotel investments in the past five years and are still looking to invest more billions in the next five years. In 2015 alone, Chinese insurance companies invested about $2.4 billion in U.S. hotels.

The surge in U.S. hotel investments is likely caused by the Chinese commerce ministry lifting the condition requiring Chinese investors to obtain approval for foreign investments over $100 million. In addition, the Chinese government has been strongly urging its insurance companies to invest abroad to avoid downturns in the Chinese economy.

A research firm based in New York has projected a $73-million investment in real estate abroad by Chinese insurance companies between 2016 and 2020. With this estimate, the target markets in the U.S. and U.K. will likely continue experiencing large investments and acquisitions in their hotel properties.

The Economic Issues Facing the Hospitality Industry in 2017

The president and chief executive officer of Pinnacle Hotels USA, Bharat Lall, MD, is a real estate and hospitality industry executive. An expert in transforming the fortunes of underperforming hotels, Dr. Bharat Lall operates with an eye toward the latest trends in hospitality.

According to the Deloitte Travel and Hospitality Industry Outlook 2017, a variety of economic factors will affect the hospitality industry throughout the year. Deloitte notes that demand for all sorts of trips should stay consistent throughout the year due to solid consumer spending. However, hoteliers must find ways to compete with the rising tide of online private accommodation providers, many of which offer more personalized experiences to travelers at a lower cost. Beyond this, all travel and hospitality companies must stay vigilant against common external issues, such as food safety, while potentially preparing for an increasing number of cyber-attacks.

The report also notes that legacy airlines face challenges in 2017 as a result of rising oil prices and changing labor deals, both of which affect airline operating costs. These cost increases may have a knock-on effect for the hospitality industry, especially if the costs get passed on to the consumer.
