Cap rates are trending upward but cap rate increases have slowed. Real Capital Analytics reports that hotel “Cap rates were up only 20 bps YOY Q2’17 versus a 40 bps YOY increase in Q2’16. Full-service hotels saw cap rates at 8.0% in Q2’17 while limited-service hotels were at 9.0% cap rate. Both levels are at the long-run average for these segments”.
