“We continue to seek institutional-quality assets, such as the Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland, in major markets with numerous demand generators,” Andy Chopra, founding principal and chief investment officer of Banyan Investment Group, said in a statement. “The hotel requires minimal capital expenditures, and we are confident the property will achieve its economic objectives with immediate cash flow.”

The hotel is located within the 937,000-square-foot Pearland Town Center, a mixed-use development that includes 140 stores, 50,000 square feet of office space and a 234-unit apartment building. It is within 15 minutes of NRG Stadium and 20 minutes of the Texas Medical Center, downtown Houston and William P. Hobby International Airport.
