Starwood launches Field & Lodge hospitality brand targeting outdoor enthusiasts

by Megan Whitby | 28 Feb 2023

Private investment firm Starwood Capital Group and real estate and hospitality company, Adventurous Journeys Capital Partners (AJ Capital), have unveiled a new outdoor-focused hotel group called Field & Stream Lodge Company. Field & Stream is an existing American brand established in 1871.

Starwood and AJ Capital want to initially create approximately 20 to 25 hotels, first targeting US markets in close proximity to authentic natural experiences, including national parks, beaches, mountain and ski towns.

The new launch is focused on serving the growing market for affordable and authentic wild outdoor experiences. This demand is an effect of the pandemic which has been felt globally as many people used time in nature as a coping mechanism to deal with lockdowns and improve wellbeing.

According to Starwood and AJ Capital, the US outdoor recreation industry is thriving as a consequence.

With 120-140 rooms per site, the locations will be customised for families and outdoor enthusiasts according to the Wall Street Journal.

Field & Stream's assets will be strategically located in markets where existing lodging options are lacking or outdated for modern consumer preferences.

Barry Sternlicht, chair and CEO of Starwood Capital, said: "As we’ve proven through our creation of W Hotels, 1 Hotels and Treehouse Hotels, among others, today's consumer has a strong desire to support brands that connect them with the outdoors.

“This initiative with Field & Stream will provide them with authentic hospitality experiences.”

Starwood and AJ Capital want to leverage their collective real estate acquisition, investment and development experience to ‘create a unique brand in a virtually undifferentiated segment’ that can scale rapidly.
