Hospitality Funding raises funds for Milwaukee hotel purchase

Hospitality Funding has raised both the equity and debt financing for the purchase of the 130-room Holiday Inn & Suites Milwaukee Airport Hotel. Hospitality Funding advised the buyer group, consisting of a leading hospitality asset management firm and a US-based private investment management company.

When assessing the transaction, the buyer group considered the following:

●      The hotel is located only one mile from both General Mitchell International Airport and Interstate 94/43, and within minutes of downtown Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Convention Center, Miller Park, Bradley Center, and the Boerner Botanical Gardens.
