MBA Hotel Brokers expects to see strong buyer demand for upper-midscale and mid-scale hotels, especially in urban and secondary markets. Newer hotels continue to attract the most attention, as well as Hilton, Marriott, and IHG brands. Many buyers also like Best Western, Choice, and Wyndham brands and there is a strong niche for extended-stay properties.
Our clients say that they prefer to work with MBA Hotel Brokers because they trust our integrity and they know that we put all our considerable resources (knowledge, experience, marketing, and database of buyers) on every deal. We have sold hundreds of hotels, valued in hundreds of thousands of dollars across the US and internationally. One reason MBA Hotel Brokers is enjoying high transaction levels is the maturity of our great team of hotel brokers, whose depth of knowledge and experience is being recognized by many hotel companies for driving superior performance in hotel transactions.

"Charlie Fritsch of MBA Hotel Brokers did a wonderful job under difficult circumstances. Because this sale involved the South Carolina Bankruptcy Courts and a Bankruptcy Trustee, there was additional work and extreme patience required of our broker and Charlie stuck with it and made the sale happen." - Trustee of Comfort Inn, South Carolina
