HREC arranges sale of Maryland Quality Inn

Quality Inn & Suites Laurel, Md.

HREC Investment Advisors arranged the sale of the 96-guestroom Quality Inn & Suites located in Laurel, Md. The buyer was a California-based hotel company.

Ketan Patel and Kevin Hanley, both SVP in HREC Investment Advisors’ Washington D.C. office, exclusively represented the seller, Precision Hospitality during the transition.

“The property attracted significant interest given its location in the Mid-Atlantic.  We continue to see an influx of buyers from all over the country looking for hotel assets in the region and specifically in D.C., Maryland and Virginia," Patel said in a statement. "The growth as well as stability afforded by the presence of government in many of the markets here is an attractive criteria for many hotel investors.”
