“Mexico’s lodging market is increasingly more liquid and continues to attract institutional capital. The JW Marriott Mexico City exemplifies what investors want: a high-quality and strong-performing asset,” Lacerda said in a statement. “Demand continues to grow and the property’s location in Polanco, Mexico City’s premier commercial district, remains one of the most sought-after submarkets.”

The JW Marriott Mexico City consists of 312 guestrooms, including 44 suites. Amenities include more than 9,000 square feet of meeting space, three food-and-beverage outlets, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a health club. Marriott International will continue to manage the hotel on behalf of the new owner.
