MCR, the sixth-largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, acquired the 100-suite Residence Inn by Marriott Philadelphia Langhorne, which is located less than 1 mile from Sesame Place theme park.

The hotel's leadership team is led by Nick Katsikis, regional director of operations. The 10-year veteran of MCR has roots in Langhorne: his grandparents lived in town and took him to Sesame Place as a child. 

Scott Fisher, GM of the hotel, is a 17-year resident of the Langhorne area. Part of Fisher's responsibility involves connecting the hotel with the local community.
