HREC arranges sale of St Louis' Holiday Inn Airport West-Earth City

HREC Investment Advisors arranged the sale of the 155-guestroom, full-service, Holiday Inn Airport West- Earth City located in St. Louis, Mo.

Ted Anka, VP in HREC’s Miami office and Tom Sommer, VP in the company's Chicago office, exclusively represented the seller during the transaction.

The property is located less than 8 miles from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, a priority city for Southwest Airlines. The airport submarket is also benefiting from significant corporate growth in the local area. Most notably, Boeing opened a new engineering and research center at the St. Louis Airport less than ten miles from the Hotel. The new manufacturing center will bring as many as 700 new jobs to the area – adding to the already 15,000 Boeing employees in the St. Louis region.
