Excel Group

Differentiation

The Excel Difference

Excel Group is distinguished by a number of distinct advantages that have enabled the firm to achieve outsized market returns. As a focused investor in the select-service hotel space, Excel Group has attained a diversified portfolio of leading assets in superior markets through its deep off-market network. The firm leverages its strategic position as a sophisticated investor in a fragmented sector of the hotel market, achieving a pooled IRR in excess of 30.0% on its realized and current investments.

STRATEGIC MARKET POSITIONING

Playing where other Firms don't


$15M - $60M

AVERAGE DEAL SIZE



Excel Group plays in a select niche of the hotel investment marketplace, focused on deals with total capitalization ranging from approximately $15 million to $60 million. This sector of the industry has marked opportunity due to its fragmented and inefficient nature, which is primarily attributable to a lack of players dedicated to this deal range. The $15 million to $60 million value-add hotel investment niche is traditionally too rich for local and regional firms and too small for large institutional firms. Excel Group differentiates itself as one of the few hotel-specialized private equity firms in this space.
