COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - September 21, 2015) - US Realty Consultants, Inc. has released its Mid-Year 2015 Hotel Investor Survey, which the company has provided for over twenty years.

The results of our Mid-Year 2015 Hotel Investor Survey continue to be strong, even compared to those reported in our Winter 2015 survey, with full-service capitalization rates declining modestly. Moreover, discount rates, or anticipated yields, have further compressed to a greater extent, and the current full-service discount rate is now at its lowest point in the twenty-plus year survey history. This quarter, limited-service hotel discount rates saw little or no movement compared to full-service hotels.

Overall going-in capitalization rates were also essentially flat for limited-service hotels, but declined 20 basis points for full-service hotels. Overall yields, or discount rates, dropped a sizable 50 basis points for full-service hotels, and were flat for limited-service hotels this survey.

The complete survey, including data on capitalization rates, discount rates, ADR and expense growth expectations, marketing time, and other data for both full-service and limited-service hotels, can be ordered through the company's website at, and clicking "Publications."
