Distressed Asset Management

Experience Leisure.

Professional Receivership Services for Hotels, Resorts, Condos, Restaurants, Ski Hill/Resort, Entertainment Venues, & Golf Courses

Leisure Hotels and Resorts understands the technical and legal processes that are  involved when it comes to receiving a distressed property by a lender through foreclosure, bankruptcy, and negotiated transitional handovers.   We have extensive experience in independent and branded hotel, resort and condo association receivership. Since the late 1980’s, Leisure managed a whole host distressed hotel assets from local, regional and national lending institutions as well from the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC).   We stabilize troubled assets; operate them in an efficient cost effective manner while providing the lender with a plan to best meet the needs to secure a sale in a realistic timeline that minimizes the financial loss.

In addition our nationally ranked hospitality brokerage division can also provide assistance during this transition phase. All of these services allow us to offer a one-stop shop during this crucial receivership / transition phase of the hotel asset.

Within 24 hours of a court ordered receivership appointment, Leisure Hotels will take over the asset and following process will be implemented

At Leisure we embrace our food and beverage operations, unlike most other management companies who outsource them. We are a resource for our ownership groups for creating, building and managing signature restaurant and event spaces within our hotels and resorts. Our development expertise includes site identification, concept creation, design, menu development, staff recruitment, marketing and daily management. We have a results-based approach that focuses on achieving profitability through revenue generation and cost controls while focusing on staff development, operations and guest satisfaction
