Buccini/Pollin Group completes DoubleTree DFW Airport buy

The Buccini/Pollin Group, a full-service real estate acquisition, development and management company, has completed the acquisition of the 282-room DoubleTree by Hilton DFW Airport North. The hotel will be operated by PM Hospitality Strategies, Inc. The hotel is located less than two miles from DFW Airport in Irving, Texas.

The acquisition capped off a strong year for BPG, which completed the development or acquisition of more than $225 million of hotel projects in Delaware, New York, Tennessee and Texas, the company reports.

“BPG continues to execute its strategic plan of acquiring full-service, stabilized hotels in primary and secondary markets and selectively developing new hotels in high barrier-to-entry urban locations. 2014 was one of the strongest years the hotel industry ever has experienced, and all signs point towards continued prosperity in the New Year,” said Dave Pollin, co-founder. “As occupancies and average daily rate (ADR) climb further, new supply remains limited, and many hotel owners look to monetize their stakes, hotel sales are likely to increase. We plan to be an active player as we grow our portfolio of well-respected hotel brands in markets with high barriers to entry and demonstrated demand growth.

Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community.

"The Hilton DFW Airport North acquisition meshes nicely with this strategy as leading prognosticator PKF-Hospitality Research predicts that occupancies will hit a record high of 69 percent in 2016, fueled in part by corporate expansions; American Airlines completing its merger integration; and two major national events - the NCAA Football Championship and the Academy of Country Music Awards – taking place in the near future," Pollin continued. "We identified Texas, and Dallas in particular, as a market to focus on due to its diversified economy, strong employment growth, and skilled workforce. We believe that this is the ideal time for us to continue expanding our footprint beyond our East Coast home base, and all signs suggest that Dallas is a smart long-term play."

The eight-story hotel is situated near such business demand generators as Allstate, Siemens, Verizon, AT&T, IMB and Microsoft. Hotel amenities include approximately 17,000 square feet of function space, outdoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, full-service business center and continual airport shuttle service. Guests can choose between Flatland Grille & Bar, featuring contemporary Texas cuisine, and Starbucks Café, for their dining selections.
