John (Jack) B. Corgel, Ph. D For many in the hotel industry, the ratio of property-level operating income and asset market pricing - the capitalization or 'cap' rate - provides an important foundation for rational investing and financing decisions. (1) During periods, such as the recent past, when both the numerator and denominator of the ratio experience different magnitudes of movement, hotel cap rate interpretations become especially difficult for all in the industry. As the markets for hotel room sales now appear headed toward more stability, hopes are rising that the wide bid/ask spreads now in the hotel asset market will narrow, leading to more normal transaction volume and returning property development to pre-2001 levels.
