Miami Beach claimed six of hospitality’s 10 priciest deals this year

It was a good year to be in the hospitality business in South Florida.

After a pandemic-induced nosedive in travel, visitors returned to the region in 2022 in a big way. Tourism jumped 15.3 percent compared to last year, according to Visit Florida. The Greater Miami Visitors Convention & Bureau reported that as of October, Miami-Dade’s year-to-date occupancy rate was 72.2 percent, up from 65.7 percent during the same period last year.

The industry group’s reported average room rate for the same period was $251, up from $211 in 2021.

Investors took note, and a number of hotel properties traded hands in 2022. Still, none of the prices topped the $270 million sale of the Jimmy Buffet-inspired Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort that ranked as last year’s biggest hotel sale in South Florida.

Leading this year’s top 10 list of sales: Sunstone Hotel Investors’ $232 million purchase of the Confidante Miami Beach. Overall, sales were concentrated in Miami Beach, with a few outliers from Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and Palm Beach.
