However, due to the small number of Napa County hotels that sold in the first half of 2018 and 2019, this statistic is misleading, said Alan Reay, president of Atlas Hospitality Group.
Only three hotels were sold in Napa County from January to June 2018: the Best Western Elm House Inn Napa, the Napa Inn on Warren Street, and the Beazley House in Napa.
Reay said that in the months and years to come, he expects “solid and continued profits” for Napa County hotels “as demand for rooms will always exceed supply, leading to higher prices. tariffs and occupancy rates “.
“The demand from hotel buyers in Napa is very strong, but few owners are willing to sell because they are making record profits,” he said.
