H&LA consultants will be in Redmond, Oregon to conduct fieldwork and analyze the market for an indoor waterpark feasibility study and in Warren, Pennsylvania for fieldwork related to a hotel appraisal.

H&LA President David Sangree spoke to the “Cleveland Plain Dealer” about a proposed hotel that would be developed near the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum. The firm prepared a feasibility study for the proposed project.

In the latest edition of “Crain’s Cleveland Business”, our hospitality expert Laurel Keller weighs in on the mid-2015 Kimpton Cleveland Hotel opening and other Cleveland-area developments. Ms. Keller notes that for some, Cleveland is becoming a ‘city of choice.’ With a discriminating brand like Kimpton in agreement, her assessment is well-supported.

H&LA consultants will be looking at demand, competitive supply, and demographic factors in the Northeast this week. They will be visiting the regions around Syracuse, NY and northern New Jersey for fresh insights as we prepare resort feasibility studies for those markets.

“Crain’s Cleveland Business” interviewed H&LA President David Sangree about how hotels are transitioning away from cookie-cutter eateries to chef-driven concepts featuring custom-crafted menus.

Surveys are one way to answer the “If you build it, will they come?” question. H&LA often uses online surveys as part of our assessment of market feasibility and demand for hotel and waterpark projects.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports on the future of Hotel Lakeside, an iconic 139-year-old property that faces an uncertain future. H&LA completed a feasibility study for the community, and President David Sangree is quoted in the article.

Our consultants are traveling this week to conduct fieldwork for a hotel and conference center feasibility study in Logan, Ohio and for a hotel and waterpark feasibility study in Rama, Ontario.
