REITs not acquiring properties at the moment are focused on restructuring the debt of properties currently under ownership. Strategic Hotels and Resorts Inc. received an extension on a loan maturity date this month on the Hotel Del Coronado, to allow negotiations for long-term restructuring to continue. Hotel REITs will also be keeping an eye on bank owned properties going up for sale at the start of the year. As banks have stabilized though, they also appear more willing to hold onto properties longer and ask for higher prices on seized assets.
