The company purchased the hotel from FelCor Lodging Trust for $21 million and will invest $9 million on renovations.

The planned renovation will include upgrades to all suites; construction of a Sheraton Club lounge for Starwood Preferred Guests; an expansion of the on-site fitness center; and the upgrading of all f&b facilities on the ground-floor level to include the Link@Sheraton Café, Starbucks kiosk, lobby lounge and restaurant.
