Acquisitions & Hotel Openings

Peachtree Hotel Group (PHG) Acquires Three Hotels in Colorado, Arizona and Wisconsin

ATLANTA, GA. September 14, 2017 — Officials of Peachtree Hotel Group (PHG), one of the nation’s fastest growing hotel investment and management platforms, today announced the separate, completed acquisitions of the 123-room Element Denver Park Meadows in Colo., the 135-room Hampton Inn Green Bay Downtown in Wis., and the 136-room Aloft Tempe in Ariz.

“As we continue to grow our national footprint, we are increasingly focused on westward expansion,” said Brent LeBlanc, senior vice president. “While we continue to have great faith in markets east of the Mississippi as evidenced by the Hampton Inn purchase, we believe there are numerous growth opportunities in the West. There are a number of new regions for Peachtree to explore that meet our criteria of strong, secondary and tertiary markets with high barriers to new entry, as well as numerous demand generators that appeal to both business and leisure travelers.”

•Element Denver Park Meadows—Located at 9985 Park Meadows Drive, the hotel is part of an upscale retail and lifestyle center in Lone Tree’s bustling Entertainment District and near Centennial Airport and the Denver Tech Center. The property also is a quick 20-minute light rail trip to INVESCO Field and Downtown Denver.

•Hampton Inn Green Bay Downtown—Situated at 201 Main Street, near such attractions as KI Convention Center, Lambeau Field and the Oneida Casino.

•Aloft Tempe—The property is a LEED certified hotel featuring a loft-inspired design and is nestled between Arizona State University, Sun Devil Stadium and Tempe Town Lake.

Coming Up In The December Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
