HREC arranges sale of Phoenix Hilton

HREC Investment Advisors arranged the sale of the 259-room Hilton Phoenix Airport Hotel located adjacent to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

Bill Murney, SVP in HREC Investment Advisors’ Phoenix office, exclusively represented the seller during the transaction.

“The Hilton is the preeminent lodging property in the entire Sky Harbor market area. The buyer, a special purpose entity formed by Phoenix based Caliber Cos. now owns over 800 rooms in the airport market and will be able to influence the rates and make the market, rather than respond to the market,” Murney said.
