ATLANTA—Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG) has acquired a joint venture interest in the 261-room Embassy Suites Atlanta – Galleria. HVMG also manages the hotel. Currently, HVMG’s managed hotel portfolio consists of 42 hotels in 16 states nationwide, totaling 8,060 rooms.
“Even though we have hotels nationwide from Maine to California, we have extensive roots and history in Georgia, as evidenced by our Atlanta corporate office location and three other hotels in the state,” said Robert S. Cole, HVMG president and CEO. “The Embassy Suites Atlanta – Galleria will benefit tremendously from the economies of scale that we offer and our extensive market knowledge. The property represents our fifth Embassy Suites acquisition and 20th Hilton branded hotel.”
Situated in northwest Atlanta’s Galleria district within walking distance of the Cobb Galleria Centre, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre and Atlanta Galleria Office Park, the hotel is also close to local businesses such as Home Depot, Coca-Cola, IBM, Lockheed and Travelport. SunTrust Park, the future home of the Atlanta Braves starting with the 2017 season, currently is under construction nearby.
“2014 was a record year for HVMG in terms of operating results as we achieved 10% same-store RevPAR growth and grew market share as well, and early metrics indicate that 2015 will be another banner year,” Cole added. “We will continue to seek hotels in markets that can benefit from capital improvements and HVMG’s unique operational systems and practices.”
