Impact of Hotel Operators on Distressed Asset Workouts


A hotel property derives much of its value from its operator and brand. When a hotel owner is in distress with respect to its loan obligations, the operator also plays a critical role in the resolution of the workout process between the owner and the lender. The rights and obligations of the operator contained in its agreements with the owner and the lender affect any workout decision that the parties may make. This legal alert will discuss the impact that hotel operators have on workouts of loans secured by hotel properties, and will summarize the likely considerations that inform the decisions of lenders and operators in the workout process.
