Value-add Acquisition and Conversion – Identifying a strategic repositioning opportunity, the team purchased an underperforming 64-room Best Western Suites in the greater Columbus MSA. Given its suboptimal performance in a strong corporate market, the hotel was converted into an upscale 92-room Homewood Suites at well below replacement cost. The conversion led to an increase of over 100% in RevPAR for the first full year.
