Which NFL teams have the best hotel properties?
NFL teams like to own properties in major metropolitan areas, and they’ve had to build more hotels than they’re comfortable with in the past.
That’s not the case in the future.
We asked the experts to weigh in on which NFL teams could afford to build their own hotels at a premium compared to the competition.
Here are the five most affordable NFL hotels, based on projected hotel occupancy rates.1.
The Dallas CowboysThe Cowboys’ new headquarters in Irving, Texas is just the beginning.
In the coming months, the team plans to expand into the downtown area and the surrounding suburbs, and it could use the new space as a launching pad for a new hotel.
The team’s current stadium is located a few blocks away, but the city of Irving recently agreed to lease the stadium for $4.5 million annually for the next 50 years.
With that agreement in place, the Cowboys will have more room to maneuver when it comes to financing future expansions.
But it’s unclear if that will be enough to get the team to the next level.
As ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates noted, the franchise may need to take a significant hit in revenue before it can be considered viable in the long run.2.
The Washington RedskinsThe Redskins have made a habit of renovating stadiums over the years.
In 2018, the Redskins moved their home opener to FedEx Field in FedEx Field, a move that helped them draw some of the biggest TV ratings in the league.
The future of the stadium is also in doubt as the team is still trying to finalize a long-term lease with Comcast.
However, the stadium does have some major upgrades planned for 2019, including a new $5 million hotel that will include a pool and spa.
The hotel is expected to be completed in time for the 2019 season.3.
The Philadelphia EaglesThe Eagles haven’t been on a hotel-building spree since the 1980s, but that could change in the coming years.
The franchise will move its training facility to Lincoln Financial Field in 2021 and the team also plans to open a new practice facility in 2018.
With new stadium and training facility plans in place and the Eagles set to become the NFL’s new team in 2019, they could become one of the most expensive teams to own a hotel.4.
The Tampa Bay BuccaneersIn 2019, the Bucs announced plans to renovate Tampa Bay’s aging stadium.
The Bucs have already spent hundreds of millions of dollars on new stadiums and arenas in their home market, but they’re expected to add more than $3 billion more in total costs in the years ahead.
The new facilities will be the most affordable options in the market, with the team likely to get a big bump in hotel occupancy.5.
The Miami DolphinsThe Dolphins have a lot of room to play in the upcoming years, but if the team wants to expand beyond its current stadium in Miami, it’ll need to do some work.
With renovations planned for the new Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the Dolphins could be one of Miami’s most expensive franchises to own.
