The four hotels include La Quinta Inn & Suites Clearwater South, La Quinta Inn & Suites St. Petersburg Northeast, La Quinta Inn & Suites Tampa Central and La Quinta Inn & Suites Tampa South.
“Adding four additional properties in Tampa brings us to a total of 10 hotels in Florida and gives us great flexibility and synergy here,” stated Joe Reardon, VP of Business Development for HE. “We are working with our ownership group to optimize opportunities and add value to these well-positioned Tampa hotel assets. We are excited about even more growth in South Florida in the near future.”
