Boston East India Hotels purchases historic Maine Inn

Boston East India Hotels, a global hotel investment, development and management company headquartered in North Andover, Mass., recently announced the acquisition of the Captain Daniel Stone Inn in Brunswick, Maine. The hotel has 30 rooms attached to a 19th century federal-style building that underwent a $2.5 million renovation in 2011.

Boston East India Hotels will rebrand the Captain Daniel Stone Inn as part of its Troca Hotels collection. The hotel will undergo a renovation of rooms and food and beverage and public spaces to be completed by March 2014. As part of its rebranding, the company has ended the property's affiliation with the Ascend Collection of boutique hotels.

"The Captain Daniel Stone Inn offers an excellent opportunity to reposition a boutique hotel with tremendous upside," said Abhijit "Beej" Das, president and CEO of Boston East India Hotels. "Conversion to the Troca Hotels brand and its link to international curated lifestyle hotel distribution and an emphasis on creating an iconic food, beverage and entertainment destination are projected to significantly enhance the overall performance of the property."
