DKN Hotels expands via buy of Wyndham Garden Ventura Pierpont

Irvine, Calif.-based DKN Hotels has acquired the 77-room Wyndham Garden Pierpont Inn in Ventura, Calif., for an undisclosed sum. The seller was Brighton Management. With the buy, DKN Hotels now has 12 properties in its portfolio.

The hotel is located within walking distance of San Buenaventura State Beach and has over 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space. The property, nicknamed "The Lovely Lady by the Sea", was built in 1910 and has seen multiple additions to its initial structure throughout the years.

Following the change of ownership, the hotel will continue to be marketed as the Pierpont Inn under the umbrella of the Wyndham Garden flag. The property will undergo significant renovations in the upcoming years, the company said.
