Known for its development and property management, Hotel Equities is working with River Ridge Renovations for its specialization in the renovation and repositioning of hotel properties, the development and execution of property improvement plans and the managing of capital expenses.
 
“We’re excited to take this important step to partner with River Ridge, a top-notch team led by Ben Wallace, an experienced and reputable leader in the renovation and reposition space,” said Joe Reardon, SVP of marketing and business development. “Wallace brings a sterling reputation for the work he has done in transforming, repositioning and renovating hotels. When we pair that with our firm’s proven record as developers and best in class operators, we deliver a comprehensive solution to our partners who have been looking for assistance in this critical area.”
