Warmbrodt Hotel Investments (WHI) closed the sale of Holiday Inn Fort Smith-City Center in Arkansas. WHI was the exclusive adviser on behalf of the seller. The property was sold to an institutional investor at an undisclosed price.  The purchaser plans renovations to the guest rooms and public spaces. 

The Holiday Inn Fort Smith-City Center is a full-service, nine-story, interior-corridor, atrium design hotel. It is comprised of 255 guestrooms, 56 of which are suites. Facilities include a fitness center, an indoor pool, restaurant, lounge and up to 15,000 square feet of meeting space.
