Contact Empirical Hotel Acquisitions

Each year our investment team reviews hundreds of potential opportunities—only a few ultimately become a portfolio property.  As permanent investors, we believe that we can always find "value creation" opportunities, regardless of market conditions.  Our belief is, “the more rocks we turn over, the more likely we will find opportunities that meet our investment thesis.” 


Over the years, Empirical has developed long standing relationships with capital partners, lenders, and financial intermediaries.  Whether an individual property or a large geographically dispersed portfolio, we have the ability to close deals quickly.
