Hospitality Matters - Spring 2016
Current topics in the hotel industry
Welcome to Hospitality Matters, our regular bulletin for the hotels & leisure industry. As noted in the Autumn 2015 edition, M&A activity in our sector continued to be strong into early 2016. One of the more surprising recent deals was the takeover of Starwood by Marriott which was announced at the end of 2015. This edition of Hospitality Matters takes a closer look at that transaction, and the effects it may have on investors and competing operators.
