Arbor Lodging Partners, a Chicago-based hotel investment and management company, acquired its second hotel in two weeks with the Courtyard by Marriott Indianapolis Northwest. The hotel, located at 7226 Woodland Drive, Indianapolis, marks Arbor Lodging’s sixth property in the Indianapolis market and the sixth Marriott hotel owned and managed by the company. The hotel will be operated by Arbor Lodging Partners’ affiliate, Arbor Lodging Management.

Arbor Lodging Partners will initiate a renovation to both the interior and exterior of the property shortly following the mid-February closing. The renovation plans are pursuant of the Courtyard by Marriott Reimage Strategy, and will include a modern update to all areas of the hotel.

"We are excited to add our sixth Indianapolis property to the Arbor portfolio," Vamsi Bonthala, CEO of Arbor Lodging Partners, said in a statement. "As fans of the Indianapolis market, we recognize both its diverse demand generators and increasing potential for growth. This hotel reflects a similar upside that we look forward to uncovering.”
