GREENBELT, MD—Chesapeake Hospitality, a third-party hotel management company based here, has taken over management of the InnPlace Hotel Bensalem in Bensalem, PA, the Comfort Suites BWI in Linthicum Heights, MD, and the Holiday Inn Express Mt. Holly in Westampton, NJ, bringing its management portfolio to 27 properties.
"For Chesapeake Hospitality, 2013 was an exponential growth year. These three new property additions are part of a continuing strategy and also demonstrate our solid reputation in the industry for turnaround management," stated Kim Sims, president of Chesapeake Hospitality. "While advancing our third-party management business will continue to be integral to our growth plan in 2014, we foresee implementing a multifaceted approach that also includes potential development prospects."
The 76-room Holiday Inn Express Mt. Holly provides easy access to Philadelphia and all of southern New Jersey. The InnPlace Hotel Bensalem sits adjacent to the PARX Casino and Racetrack and will convert to a major brand upon completion of renovation. And the Comfort Suites BWI is ideally suited for the business travelers to Baltimore Washington International Airport and Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
The Comfort Suites BWI is currently closed as it undergoes a property renovation. It is scheduled to re-open under the Choice brand in the second quarter of this year.
