Carey Watermark buys San Jose Marriott

The San Jose (Calif.) Marriott hotel now has new owners. Carey Watermark 2, a nontraded real estate investment trust, acquired the hotel for $154 million, or $302,000 per key.

The 510-room hotel was sold by CBRE Global Investors, who bought the property in May 2013 for $85.3 million. Since CBRE's acquisition of the property, the hotel added four guestrooms. Marriott International will carry on as manager of the hotel, and Cary Watermark 2 revealed plans for $5.8 million in capital expenditures and other costs related to the hotel.

"The property is the newest hotel in downtown San Jose and the acquisition adds a top performing, well-located asset in a high growth market with high barriers to entry to CWI 2's portfolio," Michael Medzigian, CEO of Care Watermark 2, said in a release. "With a strong current yield and expected solid risk-adjusted returns, the property's central location and superior access within Silicon Valley should allow it to continue to outperform within its competitive set."
