Below Replacement Cost Investment Opportunity. Based on current pricing guidance, the Hotel can be acquired significantly below replacement cost giving an investor a good basis. As the Houston market recovers, an investor will be able to capitalize on the appreciation. The change of ownership PIP is estimated to cost $1,500,000 or $13,043 per room in order to bring the Hotel up to current brand standards. When factoring this cost into the investment, an investor will still have a below replacement cost basis.
