    As an operating business without the benefit of long term leases, hotels can be volatile. With a perishable inventory of rooms to be sold each night, sophisticated marketing tactics are critical. In good times, it is easy to make money; however, as the economy slows, and new supply enters the market, cash flows lessen, and tensions rise. This is particularly true for overleveraged hotels.
