Marcus & Millichap, a commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, sold a three-property hospitality repositioning and redevelopment opportunity in Orlando. The three properties sold for a total of $40.9 million.

“Collectively, these contiguous assets represent the best hospitality repositioning and redevelopment opportunity in Orlando,” Ahmed Kabani, first VP investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Miami office, said in a statement. “The assets’ growth potential and location near the Orange County Convention Center attracted many potential buyers, including investors from China and South America. The new owner, however, is a local family with a great deal of experience in the Orlando hospitality marketplace. One of the properties, the Orlando Metropolitan Resort, has already been rebranded as a Clarion hotel.”

Kabani had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a private investor, and procured the buyer.
