Miami Doral Holiday Inn, Miami, FL

Currently some sort of disability affects 25 percent of the general public. For this reason, hoteliers throughout the United States must continue to upgrade and renovate their properties to make sure that they are continually compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act Title III (ADA) civil rights law.

Over the last 11 years, R.A. Yarling & Company has consulted with owners and managed renovations related to over 180 ADA audits at hotels throughout the nation. Simply put, our job is to advise owners of any areas of non-compliance that might exist and develop a proactive capital expenditure plan to facilitate necessary improvements/renovations.

We not only provide comprehensive audits for hoteliers, we also provide them to potential investors. Advising an investor of limitations and/or property upgrades that need to be made allows them to make key buying decisions based on the facts.

At present, R.A. Yarling & Company has been retained by Marriott International Inc., Ashford Hospitality Trust and Apple REIT Companies to provide extensive ADA consulting services for a host of hotel properties.

When this hotelier was interested in purchasing properties in southern Florida, they retained R. A. Yarling & Company to provide assessments for each prior to closing the sale. Our team provided comprehensive property condition assessments for three properties and determined major repairs that needed to be completed. Once the immediate needs were assessed, this information was combined with Property Improvement Plans (for each respective property) to advise the property owner about improvements that would be necessary for each property to meet Brand standards. A final report and construction estimates for scheduled projects including roof replacements, facade upgrades, and mechanical upgrades was prepared for the owner - and was ultimately used as a bargaining tool in negotiating the sale of these three properties.

Another set of eyes proved essential when the ownership group of this full-service hotel, complete with 220 guest rooms, wanted to evaluate the estimated costs associated with a complete renovation of the property. Retained as an owner’s representative, R.A. Yarling and Company was responsible for reviewing a pre-existing scope of work and budget as well as conducting a complete site survey to make sure all bases were covered prior to beginning the intensive renovation over a three year period. The evaluation included assessing all guest rooms and public spaces including the lobby, ballrooms, restaurant, meeting rooms as well as staff offices, back of houses spaces, roofing, building fašade, parking lot, landscaping, fountain as well as MEP and ADA compliance issues. When complete, our budget for this $4 million dollar renovation was within $3,500 of the original estimate including FF&E and artwork.
