“RLJ Urban Lodging Funds have found the research provided by Ross Woods to be indispensable in two ways. First, we appreciate his information on specific MSA trends as we make our acquisitions and plan our dispositions. It is always helpful to know where we will have the winds at our backs or in our faces.
Second, as we raise capital from among our institutional investors, they are without exception surprised and pleased to see how many individual markets are early in their respective recovery cycles. It is easy to generalize the national trends and overlook the fact that at nearly any time there are terrific opportunities for hospitality investors in specific MSA’s around the country.”
