TJM Atlantic City adds Radisson Philadelphia Northeast to portfolio

TJM Atlantic City added a third property to its portfolio with the purchase of the Radisson Philadelphia Northeast, a 274-room property in Trevose in Bucks County, Pa. Located 20 miles from center city Philadelphia, the hotel caters to business travelers and conference attendees, as well as families visiting nearby attractions such as Sesame Place.
