TAMPA, FL—Holliday Fenoglio Fowler L.P. (HFF) has closed the sale of SpringHill Suites Gainesville, a 126-room, select-service, Marriott-branded hotel in Gainesville, FL. Situated on 2.4 acres at 4155 Southwest 40th Blvd., the property is located off Interstate 75 and Archer Rd.
HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a partnership between Whitman Peterson and Sage Hospitality. Scarlett Hotel Group purchased the asset free and clear of debt.
