1/25: Phoenix’s January 2023 Q&A webinar was a big hit. Watch the replay, which is located further down on this page, to hear our answers to questions from investors just like you.
Hundreds of your fellow investors signed up for our webinar looking for information about Phoenix – how we managed a 12% annualized return from 10/31/21 to 12/31/22, and what we believe the future holds for Phoenix and our investors (which includes much of our team alongside you).
The Phoenix team, including CEO Perch Nelson, fielded everyone’s questions live, and we recorded the whole thing for you.
In addition to the video recording, we posted our written answers to investor-submitted questions on our offering page.
1/18: Our team, joined by IRA expert and founder of Horizon Trust Greg Herlean, answered most everyone’s questions about investing in Phoenix with an IRA at our webinar “Investing in Phoenix with an IRA." You can view the replay further down on this page.
Greg has years of experience working with self-directed IRAs, and he shared his specialized knowledge with our attendees. We discussed how investing in Phoenix using a self-directed IRA leads to deferred taxes on both the income you earn and the anticipated growth of your original investment.
1/10: Effective January 1, 2023, we have made changes to the distribution of our bonus shares program, which you can find on this page.
1/7: Start the new year off with an investment in your future.
Invest in January to start receiving dividends from our portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels on February 15. Plant a seed of long-term growth today with an IRA-ready investment in a REIT that distributed a 12% annualized return in 2022– read further to understand our growth potential.
Even in a volatile economic climate, Premium Business Select Hotels are often considered a safe hedge against inflation and even economic downturns. Hotels are considered particularly inflation-resistant due to the ability of management to dynamically adjust room rates based on various factors, such as input costs and travel demand. We own and operate our hotels, bringing state-of-the-art management techniques to each property to maximize profits and long-term value.
12/31: Before the ball drops in Times Square, tonight is your final opportunity to start off the new year with a stream of monthly income–Invest Today (and for long-term growth). An IRA-ready investment that you can make today.
Ask a team member any questions you may have.
Our REIT has distributed a 12% annualized return, monthly, 10/31/21-12/31/22, far higher than the average on publicly-traded REITs.
One reason we have been able to distribute such a high return is because we have no legacy assets. That means when the pandemic hit, REITs that had paid top dollar for their hotels and other properties had to endure the lockdowns and dig out of operational bills and debt generated by nearly no travel. All of our Premium Business Select Hotels were purchased during the Covid-19 pandemic at reduced valuations.
A second reason is that we operate our hotels, not just own them. We are experienced at dynamic room pricing, a well-known inflation fighter, where we can change room rates based on demand, length of stay, and other factors.
12/20: There are just eleven more days to invest to receive your first dividend distribution on January 15th!
2023 is looking to be another great year for Phoenix. Another successful year of acquiring Premium Business Select Hotels. As owners and operators, we are changing the way our hotels operate to maximize profits–and increase the value of the hotels.
Phoenix had a remarkable 2022, delivering, on average, an over 12% annualized distribution to our investors on a monthly basis. How have we done it? Through strategic purchases of hotels, improving their operations, and increasing their cash flow.
12/10: Our investment focus is on high-quality, select-service hotels, hotels with comfortable and affordable rooms in thriving downtown areas, centers for business and tourism alike, but without the high-overhead, full-scale amenities such as a full-service restaurant.
The Select Service Advantage
This keeps our labor and overhead costs down while we receive revenue from both business and leisure travelers. Big game coming to town? A wedding? Family reunion? Travel teams? These are the kinds of hotels travelers gravitate towards when coming into town for an event. A big prospective client to pitch? A full week work assignment? Meeting colleagues in-person after a long break? When this happens, our management team has the experience and knowledge to raise prices, maximizing our revenue, profits, and monthly distribution for our investors. Plus, our in-house management team does the hard work of running our hotels every day, adjusting room rates on a daily basis to keep up with inflation and demand.
12/03: As we close 2022, join us to learn what an exciting year it has been for Phoenix.
Register for our next webinar, December 8th, here: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_i-QpcH9SQMav8ZHe5cdm3Q
It has been an exciting year for Phoenix American Hospitality, our investors, and the whole team. Our portfolio of hotels is exceeding even our own expectations. While our targeted distribution is 8% annualized, we distributed over 11.5% annualized monthly return over the past year to our REIT investors. In the month of December, we are distributing 18% annualized, our highest distribution of the year.
This outperformance demonstrates the strength of our offering and portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels, of which we are owners AND operators. This year, we increased our REIT portfolio to 11 profitable hotels across the south and midwest.
11/19: Since launching our latest offering, our REIT investors have been distributed an 11.5% annualized monthly return (10/1/21-10/31/22).
We will be distributing an 18% annualized return for investors of record by November 30th, distributed on 12/15! As a REIT, we are required to distribute our year-end profits.
11/15: Invest in November to receive a special bonus distribution in the month of December.
As a REIT, we are required to distribute 90% of our profits by year-end, as required by tax code. Each December, we make a bonus distribution whereby we distribute any retained profits to our investors.
We are proud to announce that we will be distributing an 18% annualized return to our investors of record by November on 12/15.
11/8: Seeking a real estate investment with historically high monthly returns?
In the month of December, Phoenix American Hospitality will be distributing an 18% annualized return.
Is that real, and if it is, how?
Our REIT is required to distribute 90% of our profits, meaning our structure compels us to distribute to all of our investors of record by November 30th, a bonus distribution. All investors of record will be eligible to receive this bonus distribution on December 15th, so if you have been putting off your investment, now may be the time to reconsider that.
Last month, and for the year before that, we distributed an average 11.5% annualized return monthly, well higher than the industry average on publicly traded REITs–and without all of the volatility that comes with stocks.

10/15: Want to learn about the GROWTH part of investing in our REIT focused on Premium Business Select Hotels?
Happy DIVIDEND day. Investors of record as of September 30 and all before that date are receiving their dividend on Monday (we can’t distribute on the weekend). To get your dividend on 11/15 be sure to invest by Halloween!
Join our next webinar Wednesday, November 2nd 12PM EST / 9AM PST exclusively offered to our readers, to learn about how we plan to sell our portfolio of hotels in 3-4 years, distributing the profits we anticipate with our investors and aiming for an overall return of over 20% annualized.
10/11: Real Estate is an attractive asset class to many investors, especially when traditional stocks and bonds are unsteady.
Investors turn to real estate during times of market volatility for many reasons, including seeking regular income, capital appreciation (growth of your original investment), and diversification, but not all real estate performs in the same way.
Hotel real estate as an asset class has historically been exclusively offered to institutions through private investment partnerships and private equity real estate funds with six or seven digit minimums. Our REIT, open to individual investors, provides you with the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of top-quality, professionally managed Premium Business Select Hotels in downtown, small to mid-sized urban markets across the southern and midwestern states.
10/04: A Hedge Against Inflation
Real estate is often considered a hedge against inflation. Typically rising prices increases the replacement cost of property. Hotels are an especially inflation resistant investment because of pricing power, the ability for management to rapidly adjust room rates to demand, costs and other factors. We believe Phoenix’s Premium Business Select Hotels are even more set to do well in this inflationary climate because all our assets have been, and are being, purchased at low prices due to the decline in travel from 2020-2021. Hotels are generally purchased on a trailing 12 month revenue basis.
A Good Time for Occupancy
For the most part, rising inflation hasn’t hurt the hotel industry to the degree it has hurt other sectors of the economy. Globally, hotels are in the strongest position they’ve been in since the dawn of the pandemic, as domestic travelers are hungry for travel after being cooped up for the past two years. Business travel is now seeing a steady recovery, as 2022 levels are closing the gap with 2019 levels. Amadeus’ Agency360® data reveals hotel bookings across all major global distribution systems (GDS) have increased 98% in August 2022 compared to January 2022.
9/30: Invest TODAY and receive your first monthly distribution on October 15th.
For this month, we are projecting a 10% annualized return.
We have ended the booming summer for travel of 2022 and you may be asking yourself, isn’t it too late to invest in hotels if the market has recovered?
To that we say, NO!
The return to 2019 occupancy and revenues for our Premium Business Select Hotels has been primarily based on leisure travel. Now, business travelers are also coming back into the market. This month, we are seeing an influx of business travelers, a whole new market opening up to fill our hotels. We were already seeing a return to pre-pandemic occupancy without most of our business clientele, and now that business travel is returning, we feel confident we will be able to continue to distribute monthly dividends that exceed our 8% annualized target.
9/27: Just THREE DAYS Left to Invest and Receive Your September Distribution (in October)
Want to begin making passive monthly income from
Real Estate investing?
Phoenix American Hospitality’s REIT is distributing a 10% annualized return for the month of September.
Invest before the first of the month to receive your first distribution October 15th.
Since launching our REIT, over the past year we have consistently beaten our 8% annualized return goal to our investors, substantially higher than average returns for publicly traded REITs, which see their underlying value change every second.
9/15: Congratulations! If you invested with Phoenix by August 31st you are receiving your 12% annualized distribution today!
Since launching our latest REIT offering we have distributed to our Investors on average an 11.4% annualized distribution year-to-date, far exceeding our targeted distribution rate of 8% annualized.
Monthly dividends are the first part of how an investor may profit by an investment in our REIT. The second part is capital appreciation, the difference between the price we paid for our hotels and the price we sell them at. Combined, we are targeting an overall IRR (internal rate of return) of more than 20% a year.
9/9: Join us Wednesday, September 14th at 12PM EST / 9AM PST for a FREE webinar, covering our portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels.
Register at the top of this page.
At this webinar we will be reviewing four main topics:
How we select our hotels
Why we manage them in-house instead of outsourcing management
Why our hotels are great inflation fighters
How our experience as owners and operators provides insight and a competitive edge
All of these points illustrate why our REIT is a strategic investment in today’s unpredictable and inflationary economic environment.
9/2: Join us September 14th at 12PM EST / 9AM PST for a free webinar detailing our portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels. We are owners and operators of real, profitable, assets.
Our sector of real estate is not moving with the ups and downs of the stock and bond markets. Many of our investors are adding real estate to their portfolios aiming for monthly income and long-term growth.
If you have been following this offering, you may want to dig deeper into how we are achieving such success on this REIT offering as we build a portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels. We are acquiring, operating, and optimizing assets you can touch.
8/29: Our next dividend, projected at 12%, will be distributed on 9/15 to shareholders of record on 8/31, meaning there’s just three more days left to invest!
We have PAID our REIT investors on average an 11.4% annualized distribution year-to-date.
Bottom line - our latest offering has consistently delivered monthly income to Investors exceeding our targeted rate of 8%, and we plan to do it again this month.
8/26: August 31st is the last day to receive our next distribution. Invest now to receive a projected 12% annualized return for August!
If you’re in Texas and want to see up close and personal how we run this REIT, feel free to set a time to visit our headquarters in Dallas. Here you can meet our President and CEO Perch Nelson, as well as the rest of our team, who have spent countless hours acquiring and managing our Premium Business Select Hotels and answering questions from prospective investors.
We come together daily to review our pipeline of the right hotels, the ones that meet our strict investment criteria, and improve operations. We aim to continue to beat our dividend goal and increase the overall value of the property.
8/23: As our corner of the travel industry swiftly recovers, you can still invest and receive our August distribution, projected at 12% annualized!
Since launching this REIT, open to individual investors, we have PAID our investors an average 11.4% annualized distribution year-to-date.
Right now, our household name-brand, premium business select hotels are undergoing a boom, putting us on the right side of transformations in the hotel industry. You won’t typically find amenities such as a concierge, a bellhop, a spa, or room service at most of our hotels. Instead travelers come intent on staying in a nice, comfortable, and affordable room, often for business or an event such as a family reunion, sports, or wedding.
8/19: We are pleased to share that four more hotel properties have been added to our REIT portfolio. Plus, a fifth closing is anticipated very soon–with even more on the horizon. They are all performing ahead of budget.
Don’t miss out on our August dividend, anticipated at 12% annualized, paid to shareholders of record by 8/31!
Here are our recently acquired properties with more coming:
Marriott Residence Inn - Cape Canaveral, FL
Marriott Springhill Suites - Denton, TX
Hilton DoubleTree - Charlotte, NC
Hilton Hampton Inn Fort - Wayne, IN
Hilton Garden Inn Fort - Wayne, IN
8/5: At Phoenix American Hospitality, we are laser focused on acquiring and improving Premium Business Select Hotels.
For our seventh offering, American Hospitality Properties REIT, we have, and are still, acquiring hotels by household name-brands (e.g. Marriott, Hyatt, & Hilton) and are distributing profits by improving facilities through our in-house management of these hotels. Our senior management leaders boast decades of hands-on experience profitably buying, owning, managing, and selling Premium Business Select Hotels.
Our niche, premium business select hotels, provides more amenities than budget hotels. They typically offer small meeting spaces and a limited-service restaurant. They offer fewer amenities than resorts. You typically won’t find a concierge, a bellhop, a spa, or room service at most of our hotels, even though they are nationally known brands. These hotels appeal to a broad array of guests, including road-warriors and regional business travelers, small business owners, middle-class leisure travelers, student athletic teams and their families, wedding parties, and way more who are primarily making domestic trips. These properties are attractive in nearly all market climates, offering amongst the highest operating and profit margins in the industry, and they are especially resilient during downturns.
8/2: Hotels are both businesses and real estate. Real Assets and businesses that can be touched.
An investment in Phoenix American Hospitality’s REIT is not an investment driven by the ups and downs of the stock market. Instead, you are investing in our portfolio of Premium Business Select Hotels, sporting households names such as Marriott and Hilton.
We are in the midst of the travel recovery of 2022. The hotels we purchase for this REIT meet stringent criteria. They are strong national brands outside of urban areas with impressive cash flow, market leadership, multiple revenue sources, and competitive room pricing. Importantly, due to hotels’ ability to rapidly adjust room-rate pricing, we are in a prime position to fight inflation.
7/31: Today is the LAST DAY to invest to receive this month’s dividend distribution
Want to receive monthly income from real-estate? We believe our niche, premium business select hotels, is one of the safest and most profitable investments in this economic climate (great for fighting inflation).
DIVIDENDS will be paid on 8/15 to investors of record on 7/31, so if you haven’t joined yet, now may be the time to do so.
If you invest today ($5,000 or above), you will also receive bonus shares.
7/23: Starting August 1st, we will be adjusting our bonus shares program, eliminating shares at the $5,000 level (our current minimum investment) and the $10,000 levels. So if you’d like to receive additional shares for our investment at those levels, invest before August 1st!
7/15: Happy Distribution Day! TODAY Investors of record as of 6/30/22 receive their June distribution.
Since our launch, we have exceeded our goal of a preferred return (meaning you get paid before we do) of 8% annualized, distributed monthly. We also target growth, sharing the profits with our Investors when we sell our portfolio of hotels, estimated to be in 3-4 years.
It is repetitive, some may say consistent, but not boring, at least not to us. Exceeding expectations is always good news to us.
Our Bonus Share Program is Changing
At the end of this month we are eliminating extra shares at the $5,000 and $10,000 investment levels, so if you’d like to receive more bang for your buck, on that size investment, act quickly.
7/08: At Phoenix American Hospitality, “Capital Appreciation” is a cornerstone of our business model.
Our latest offering, American Hospitality Properties REIT, has taken the approach of purchasing hotels at COVID-reduced valuations, improving facilities and operations, returning and optimizing profitability during the resurgence of travel, all while paying Investors monthly dividends exceeding our goal of 8% (annualized).
The end game, and where larger gains could originate is what is called capital appreciation, as illustrated in one of our first messages to you, “buy low, sell high, and bank profits along the way.” We have completed the first step, buying low. When others saw tragedy in the travel industry, we saw, and still see, an opportunity for growth. Because hotels are priced based on recent (think 12-24 months) revenue, most properties are still at pre-pandemic valuations. We improve operations as we bank profits for our Investors. We are experts in dynamic and inflation-fighting room rate pricing based on consumer demand.
6/24: DIVIDENDS will be paid on 7/15 to investors of record as of 6/30.
If you have been waiting to invest with Phoenix, now may be the right time for you, as we will be sending our June distribution on July 15th to investors of record as of June 30th. While we target an 8% preferred annualized rate, we have been consistently exceeding our goals, distributing a 10% return for our May distribution and an annualized 12.7% distribution for our first six months ending 3/31/22.
6/14: Join us for a free webinar Thursday, June 23rd 12PM EST / 9AM PST to learn more about how we leverage hotel room rate pricing to maximize potential profits for our investors.
Thinking about income and growth? Come learn why specific types of hotels are well positioned for fighting inflation.
Prices rose rapidly in the month of May, causing market turmoil. The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates in late June, and again in July, in an attempt to slow the economy and cool inflation–but will it work?
Inflation might be a big challenge for traditional markets, but hotels have a secret weapon, Pricing Power. Premium Business Select Hotels have a high amount of flexibility over their daily room rates, allowing them to stay on top of changes in demand and costs. These are the kind of hotels that Phoenix’s REIT owns and operates, and we are experienced at managing variable costs and keeping fixed costs down.
6/7: Join us for a FREE webinar June 23rd 12pm EST / 9AM PST entitled “Pricing Power: How Hotels Fight Inflation.” We invite you to learn our business model, buying and operating hotels at COVID-reduced prices, which we believe is well-positioned to thrive in today’s economic climate, particularly the increase in travel. Because hotels are able to change room rates daily, even hourly, they can respond to rapid changes in consumer demand and input costs. We focus on Premium Business Select Hotels which often have short-term bookings and large events coming through town. We hand select hotels which have multiple reasons to be booked, beyond just doing business.

5/27: Research shows that hotels can be a hedge against inflation due to their ability to adjust room rates daily, or even hourly. Many factors go into pricing such as supply and demand, how long travelers expect to stay, what kind of amenities they require, and more. All these factors go into pricing room rates and give hotels the freedom to adjust prices to both increasing demand and changing costs. These are just some of the reasons why we have so far delivered monthly dividends that exceed our stated goal.
5/24: The disruption in travel caused by Covid-19 presents a prime opportunity to alter the paradigm of hotel stays and pricing. Initial indications are that travelers are eager to spend pent-up savings on travel experiences, meaning an increase in price is not likely to decrease demand. Inflation is here, and possibly here to stay for a while, so the hotel industry’s freedom to adjust prices to meet demand and expenses is a major advantage.
5/20: It is the ability for hotels to rebound during times of economic downturn, and the specificities of today’s landscape that make this a prime time, especially for name-brand business select hotels. Simply put, business people, travel sports teams, and families are planning summer (and beyond) travel.
Additionally, hotels are in a particularly prime position to fight inflation, due to their ability to adjust room rates. If demand due to the great travel resurgence of 2022 increases, the industry should be well-positioned to execute pricing power to offset inflationary costs. Hotels can price rooms continuously in response to occupancy levels.
5/13: We are hosting a FREE webinar entitled “Hosting America’s Business: The Phoenix American Hospitality Story” coming up Wednesday May 18th, 12PM EST / 9AM PST. Here our President and CEO Perch Nelson will talk about how we arrived at our 7th offering, how we made hotel investments open to all, and how our process and experience improves the properties we acquire. At the end of the event we will have an open Q&A session, where we will take any questions you have about our business or how to invest. Register here: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_l1aNRhXSS3GVs1LJFbXGHw
5/10: Americans are finally planning their summer vacations and travel is way up, but, according to Barron’s, that doesn’t seem to be helping investors in travel related stocks right now.
Many of the publicly traded companies they are talking about are reporting improved performance. However, when dealing with stocks, ongoing turbulence in the market itself can take good news and still cause losses for investors.
While major public companies, such as airlines and hotel chains, are subject to volatility in the stock market, at Phoenix our business model is already distributing (each month) returns higher than our target.
5/6: If you’ve been following our updates, you know that we have been aiming to distribute an 8% annualized dividend (paid monthly), plus growth, from our REIT. We are proud to say that we have met and exceeded our goal! We have paid our investors a 12.7% annualized distribution for the six-month period ending March 31st, 2022.
4/30: Saturday, April 30th, is the last day to invest and to be eligible to receive your May 15th distribution– and it is enhanced in two ways.
1) Due to better than expected operating results as our hotel resurgence accelerated in April, we have a 10% distribution for May. This is well over the 8% preferred rate.
2)Bonus shares! We are changing the program in May, lock yours in by investing by 4/30.
4/26: Join us for our webinar “Benefiting from the Travel Rebound - Learning From the Past: What Historical Performance Predicts for Business Select Hotels” Wednesday, April 27th at 12PM EST / 9AM PST. Register here: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_-Nxjt3TtSz6ZI3KYwe190A
Our next cash dividend will be payable on 5/15 to investors of record on 4/30 (get in fast). This comes as part of our planned series of distributions from American Hospitality Properties REIT, Inc., which aims to pay investors monthly an annualized 8% preferred return.
The dividend does not include any capital appreciation..
4/23: Phoenix is looking to be a more secure and profitable investment than traditional bond Fund ETFs. 98% of the 503 bond ETFs are currently running at negative returns in 2022, according to Bloomberg. Rising inflation is having a negative impact on bonds, with the largest bond-exchange traded funds recently hitting new lows. Financial advisors are steering investors into other options such as dividend-oriented strategies, commodities, and some of the larger advisors are steering their clients into the realm of what the wealthiest invest in, real estate.
4/19: Special note: We just paid another monthly dividend (on 4/15) to shareholders of record as of 3/31/22 and will again to everyone who invests by 4/30 (on 5/15).

Join us for a complimentary webinar April 27th 12pm EST / 9am PST to learn why hotels have been a particularly resilient investment through periods of economic downturn. Learn why we believe that the decline in travel during the COVID-19 pandemic is a potential indicator to a stronger opportunity—potentially experiencing unusually strong returns for our investors in this, our seventh fund. Questions are encouraged—we’ll be holding an interactive Q&A near the end of the session!
4/16: On Wednesday, April 27th at 12:00pm EST / 9:00am PST Phoenix American Hospitality (PAH) will be hosting our fifth FREE webinar. At this virtual event we will be discussing the history of hotel valuations, their downturns and rapid recovery.
We’ll also share our plan to use our decades of experience owning AND operating hotels to optimize operations, increase value, and if all goes according to plan, sell within 3-5 years to the benefit of our investors. We take hotels that may be under-managed and go about improving their cash flow through active management. Keep in mind that we are in the “travel recovery of 2022!” We have already purchased three hotels and, as we raise capital swiftly, will purchase more soon.
4/12: Phoenix American Hospitality recently announced $4 million in improvements to its 17th acquisition, Marriott Cape Canaveral Cocoa Beach.
How’s that for active management (instead of passive ownership)? With all the strides our REIT’s been making lately, you may be wondering, isn’t travel still down? Aren’t we still in a global pandemic, pushing hotel valuations down? Well, our answer to these questions is, “All the more reason to get invested with Phoenix,” and to explain that, we’ve uploaded a new video to our YouTube channel. If you have the time (and it’s not even two minutes long), we recommend giving it a watch.
4/09: Here’s a question we get a lot:
“How much do I need to invest to earn $500 every month?”
We have been paying an 8% annualized rate. Now, we pay distributions every month, so that’s 1/12th of 8%. Doing the math, to receive $500 each month, you’d need to have made a $75,000 investment (and potentially less, if you act soon and take advantage of our limited bonus shares offer).
4/02: From the start, being open to everyone—not just the most elite class of investors—has been at the heart of this offering, and that’s never going to change. We’re committed to letting nearly everyone participate, especially now with the travel industry comeback of 2022 (did you see this week’s jobs report?) in hotel real estate investing. That’s why we’re pleased to introduce a few options to make the process even easier.
To start, we’ve created a simple subscription “add-on” form for existing investors. If you’ve already invested in PAH, and your information hasn’t changed, you can use this form to add onto your original investment—without the sign-up hassles.
In a similar vein, we created the option of setting up automatic contributions to your account, so you can increase your investment without having to move a muscle. This is a great way to rack up bonus shares while they’re still available.
3/21: We acquired a preferred interest in two new hotels—the Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton Homewood Suites! This marks AHP REIT's second transaction, bringing its total to 3 hotels owned and operated. Both located in Indiana, these properties are prime examples of this offering’s focus on Premium Business Select Hotels. We’re renovating them in a big way (think new carpeting, wall coverings, beds, bathroom fixtures, and more), and we’re confident that these changes will improve their cash flow and put more money in our investors’ pockets.
3/12: We launched a new video series highlighting some of the most frequently asked questions from our past webinars. If you’re short on time, this is a great way to get the most essential details of our seventh offering. Find them on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrTUaeuWXGt7ErByCy0K9VA
3/5: We made a new video to showcase, from beginning to end, exactly how we put money in your pocket by improving the cash flow of our hotels. This video can be found right on our YouTube channel, which we created just for the occasion and have already loaded up with all of our past webinars. Be sure to subscribe for alerts of new uploads!

1/28: We launched a new system of bonus shares! Now, and for a limited time only, those who invest $1,000 or more into this offering will receive additional shares at no extra cost. To learn more, open the chat in the bottom-right corner and a certified Phoenix American Hospitality employee will speak with you directly.
12/9: Hotel occupancy in the U.S. is now hovering around an impressive mid-50%—closer than ever to 2019 pre-pandemic levels. In fact, Los Angeles has matched its stats for the comparable week in 2019. Of course, revenue follows: the country is now only 9.2% away from pre-COVID levels of revenue per available room! For the whole report, go to “STR: US Weekly Hotel Occupancy Hovers Around Mid-50%” on CoStar.
11/23: The Motley Fool wrote a compelling piece on why now may be the right time to invest in hotels. Among the evidence cited is a AAA forecast that 53.4 million Americans will leave their homes for Thanksgiving travel (a 13% increase from 2020, and only 5% below 2019) and that as many as 42% of Americans (and 53% high-income Americans) plan to travel for the holidays. Naturally, they’ll be looking for places to stay—that’s where we come in. You can read the full argument in “Why Investing in Hotels Is a Good Idea Right Now” on The Motley Fool.
11/11: New data from STR revealed demand for U.S. hotels has surged nearly all the way back to pre-pandemic levels. Hilton CEO Christopher Nassetta expects not only that the trend will continue through the new year, but that hotel revenue in 2022 will surpass the peak of 2019. For the full story, check out “Hotel CEOs predict record numbers for 2022” on Hospitality Net.
11/3: Marriott’s Q3 2021 report showed a remarkable 118.4% year-over-year increase in revenue per available room. Their CFO cited stronger travel rates as a contributor, and noted particularly good improvement in special corporate business. Great news for investors of Phoenix’s 7th offering, which specializes in Business Select Hotels! To read the details, visit “Marriott Q3 RevPAR up 118.$ year over year” on Hotel Management.
10/28: Travel rose from 48% of pre-pandemic levels in Q2 to 72% through September, driving a rebound in revenue for Mastercard. As more people leave the house, we’re providing them a place to stay.
