(Atlanta, Georgia) October 2, 2014 – Encore Hospitality, a subsidiary of Dallas-based commercial real estate investment firm, Encore Enterprises, Inc., has purchased a 154-room DoubleTree Suites by Hilton hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. The hotel is located immediately adjacent to SunTrust Park, the new Atlanta Braves baseball stadium, which is slated for completion in 2017.
“We are excited to be back owning and managing hotels in Atlanta,” said Glenn Pedersen, President of Encore Hospitality. “We look forward to investing millions of dollars into the hotel so as to properly position it in the market and compete with all the hotels that have recently undergone a renovation.”
Encore plans on investing upwards of six million dollars into the remodel, including a state of the art lobby which will feature a multi-story water feature and a sports lounge.
“SunTrust Park and the Braves are anticipated to draw large crowds, and we are positioned to serve the community when this need arises,” said Bharat Sangani, Chairman of Encore Enterprises.
The deal was brokered by Hodges Ward Elliott out of Atlanta, Georgia and purchased from Inland Hospitality of Palm Beach, Florida.
