TORRANCE, CA—DiamondRock Hospitality Company, a lodging-focused real estate investment trust, sold the 487-room Torrance Marriott South Bay, located here, to an unaffiliated third party for $76 million.
The Torrance Marriott South Bay generated $5.4 million of Hotel Adjusted EBITDA during the trailing four quarters ending Sept. 30, 2013.
“The sale of the Torrance Marriott marks the continued successful execution of our strategic capital recycling program. We completed the sale of the non-core Torrance Marriott and will redeploy those proceeds into a core hotel, the state-of-the-art Hilton Garden Inn being completed in Times Square. We believe this is a winning formula," stated Mark W. Brugger, president and CEO of DiamondRock Hospitality Company.
