“We are modernizing the curb appeal, as well as the look and comfort of our interior spaces, so we can even better meet the expectations of our guests,” said Andy Chopra, chief investment officer of Banyan Investment.  

The company acquired both properties earlier this year -- the Hampton Inn Terre Haute in March and the Comfort Suites Newport in August. The hotel in Kentucky was purchased in association with Investra Investments. The properties will continue to operate during the renovations, with work progressing in strategic phases and affecting only a limited area of each hotel at any given time. Renovations are expected to be completed by February in Terre Haute and by May in Newport.
