GEI is an active investor in hotel assets. We have a preference for “lifestyle” or unique small luxury hotels in key urban markets. A “lifestyle hotel” is typically targeted at a specific market segment or demographic and reflects the unique personality of that clientele. They are also typically small in size (150-250 rooms), and large in creativity, attention to detail, and inspired design. GEI has invested in and created many restaurant concepts. Our existing portfolio of restaurants is associated with our hotel investments, but we will invest in interesting restaurant concepts on a stand-alone basis. We look for unique ideas, passionate and skilled operators, and viable locations.
