Arbor Lodging Partners Acquires Courtyard in Des Moines, IA

CHICAGO—Arbor Lodging Partners has acquired the Courtyard by Marriott Des Moines West/Jordan Creek through an affiliate.

Located in West Des Moines, IA, this acquisition is Arbor Lodging’s fourth Marriott-branded hotel purchased in the last 24 months. The 102-room upscale property will be managed by Arbor Lodging Partners’ affiliate Arbor Lodging Management, formerly NVN Hotels.

The hotel has spacious guestrooms and a hotel lobby with seating options from intimate media pods to large tables. The Bistro serves Starbucks coffee and made-to-order breakfast as well as soup, salad, sandwiches or pizza. There is also a lounge, indoor pool and 24-hour fitness center.

It is adjacent to Jordan Creek Town Center shopping and a short distance from area businesses such as Wells Fargo Headquarters, Des Moines International Airport, Nestle, Athene, Principal Financial, Unity Point Health, DuPont Pioneer, Hy-Vee and Nationwide.

“This property marks Arbor Lodging’s’ entry into the Des Moines MSA and our further expansion into the Midwest,” said Sheenal Patel, CEO of Arbor Lodging Management.

“This investment fits into our core/core plus platform with its ideal location, financial stability and strong brand positioning,” said Vamsi Bonthala, CEO of Arbor Lodging Partners. “With the Courtyard Des Moines West/Jordan Creek we look to continue the success we’ve achieved with other recent yield-driven acquisitions like the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Downtown Milwaukee and the Staybridge Suites in Cleveland/Mayfield Heights.”
