Trigild acquires management of five California hotels

Trigild, a San Diego-based real estate firm specializing in property/asset management and fiduciary services, took over a portfolio of five franchised hotels in Valencia, Thousand Oaks and San Luis Obispo, Calif.

According to Trigild president Judy Hoffman, Trigild, which has nearly four decades of experience in the hospitality industry, was appointed receiver of the five hotels - including three Marriott hotels, a Best Western and a Holiday Inn Express - by the Superior Court of California, County of Monterey.

As court appointed receiver, Trigild is charged with taking possession and control of the five hotels while a legal action is pending. The court also provided for Trigild to serve as the management company handling day-to-day operations.

·         The 93-room TownePlace Suites/Thousand Oaks, 1712 Newbury Rd., Thousand Oaks, Calif.

·         The 120-room Courtyard Marriott, 1710 Newbury Rd., Thousand Oaks, Calif.

This latest project marks another milestone in the continued growth of Trigild’s hospitality division. In late 2012, the firm announced a strategic alliance with Blu Hotels to jointly develop, acquire and operate hotel properties with institutional or individual investors. As in this case, the company continues to provide fiduciary services to lenders and servicers as receiver, trustee, REO manager and disposition agent.
