The DoubleTree Sunrise at Sawgrass Mills is a 250-room full-service hotel, located at the southern entrance to Sawgrass Mills.  HFF represented the seller, Long Wharf Real Estate Partners, in the transaction.  The property, previously a Crowne Plaza, had recently undergone major renovations following its conversion to Hilton's DoubleTree brand. 

The two sales are the latest in a string of recently-closed South Florida hotel transactions orchestrated by HFF.  Last month, the team announced the sale of the historic Raleigh Hotel in South Beach to Tommy Hilfiger's newly-formed hospitality company, The Raleigh Group.  HFF has also closed the sale of the Holiday Inn Express in Plantation this year, and previously handled the sales of the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale and the Marriott Harbor Beach ground lease, both on Fort Lauderdale Beach.
