Great post! Thanks Ralph.

I have bought a few hotel REITs over the years and currently own SHO which I have been patiently waiting for it to fully reinstate its dividend to sell.

One important thing to remember is that lodging/travel is fairly economically sensitive and this coupled with the segments lack of long term leases at least to the end customer makes these REITs economically sensitive in my opinion.

For hotels in some of the more tourist areas I wonder is the strong dollar might have an effect on occupancy rates, especially since there are a few minor signs of a possible U.S. economic slow down.
