FelCor’s Tom Corcoran on What You Don’t Know About Hotel REITs

Sorry about the delayed posting! It’s the snow’s fault.

Tom Corcoran helped create the hotel industry REIT, which in turn happened to define how many investors buy hotels today. FelCor is a public company (NYSE: FCH) that owns more than 100 properties. You’ll learn the story of how he and his partner created the business, how Tom got involved in hospitality and how other can follow.  

But first, Glenn speaks with Corey Nyman of the F&B consulting firm, The Nyman Group (www.thenymangroup.com). The group has had an active role working with major hotel brands, restauranteurs, chefs and more that helps set dining trends. In this discussion, the guys go deep to pull back the veneer, all so you can better understand the state of dining in America. Hint: It’s getting rough out there for restaurant owners.

Exhale was doing it before mostly everyone. Combining fitness, spa and a healthy living ethos to transform the fitness business into the wellness industry. We talk about how she started the company, the move away from traditional gyms and spas into something that creates a more holistic approach to wellbeing. It’s a lifestyle brand, not luxury living. Exhale facilities are located both in hotels and as standalone venues. Learn more at: www.exhalespa.com

But first, Glenn and David Eisen talk about more lesson learned at ALIS, a major hotel industry conference, their hard hat tour at the under-construction InterContinental hotel and Hotel Indigo in Los Angeles and of course, more Trump talk. This time focused on how last week’s travel ban could potentially crater one of our country’s most important exports; foreigners vising the United States.
