Strong 2022 Performance
Consistent with many other hotels located in university markets, 2022 proved to be a strong year for the Hampton Inn. The asset realized a significant increase in performance, realizing revenue and income above the levels achieved in 2019. For year-end 2022, the Hampton Inn achieved a $92.46 RevPAR, driven by occupancy of 72 percent and an ADR of $128. The Hotel’s strong performance increase stemmed from both an 8 percent gain in occupancy coupled with a $13 lift in ADR to $128. The ability of the Hampton Inn to drive consistently strong RevPAR index levels versus the competitive set is a direct result of its historically local market reputation, brand, dominant I-70 location, and the strong on-site executive team, which has been at the Hotel for over a decade.
Opportunity to Increase ADR Through Renovation
While the RevPAR levels achieved at the Property in 2022 were quite impressive, there is an opportunity to drive topline performance by completing the manageable change of ownership PIP. As of year-end 2022, the Property achieved an ADR of $128. With new ownership completing the manageable change of ownership PIP, which includes a soft goods renovation in the lobby and guest rooms, the Property will be positioned to offer the newest room product in the market. This will enable management to drive higher ADR and better capitalize on its strong occupancy index versus the competitive set by growing its weekday ADR index of 102 percent and surpassing the competitive set on weekends, as the Property trailed the market by nearly five dollars in 2022.
Minimal Change of Ownership PIP
The Hampton Inn is in excellent condition since completing a comprehensive renovation in 2017. As a result, new ownership is expected to secure a long-term license from Hilton through completion of a manageable PIP. The key items required for new owners are expected to include expanding and renovating the fitness center, exterior signage work, and a soft-good refresh in the guest rooms and lobby. This non-invasive PIP will allow a new owner to capitalize on the robust performance of the Property without being burdened by of disruptive CapEx requirements.
Powerful Brand and Highly Regarded Reservation System
The Hampton Inn is one of Hilton’s top brands and one of the most desirable limited-service hotel brands worldwide. The brand has over 2,715 properties worldwide, totaling more than 290,250 rooms. As one of three Hilton branded properties in Columbia, the Hampton Inn is well positioned to capture loyal Hilton Honors members seeking lodging accommodations.
Long Term License Agreement
New Ownership is anticipated to get a 15-year license term with the completion of the change of ownership PIP. This will drive overall investment returns and will enable new ownership to get better long term financing on the Property.
Unencumbered of Management
The Hampton Inn is being offered unencumbered of management, which will allow a new owner to implement its own business plan to capitalize on the impressive operating metrics achieved by the current operations team driving even stronger RevPAR and NOI levels achieved at the Property.
