“The McKibbon team is pleased to add the Hampton Inn & Suites Atlanta-Downtown to our growing hotel management portfolio,” Randy Hassen, president of McKibbon Hospitality’s hotel management division, said in a statement. “The hotel meets all of the criteria we look for in new management opportunities—it is a trusted brand located in a prime area within a high-demand market. We also look forward to working with one of our valued hotel owners, Apple Hospitality REIT, on this exciting project.”
