Marriott, Hilton, Others, Will Be Ripe for Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions, Aug. 9, 2021–Demitri Diakantonis
We expect business travel to return in some sort of fashion this fall. Private equity firms, such as KKR, are betting on a rebound by buying up private planes after the halt in travel during quarantine has created attractive buying opportunities for them. What about hotels? Well, if dealmakers are flying again, they have to stay somewhere and that could mean hotels could be ripe for M&A.
