"There’s no better group to have in place coming out of the renovations than Expotel. They know the hotel better than anyone, as they managed it prior to us purchasing the asset and have unmatched local expertise. With most of the common areas complete and only a few floors to go, we are already seeing a great response from returning guests and first-timers," said Gianfilippo, founder of Gianco Cos., in a prepared statement.

"As this property wraps up the current renovations, we are excited to add a refreshed product back into the market. Our transition team was quick to get right to work and have done an amazing job leading our property based team through the transition," Tim Waz, Expotel’s president & COO, said in a statement.
