Minneapolis-area Embassy Suites sells for $24M

The 218-room Embassy Suites Hotel Bloomington in Minnesota has sold for $24 million. The buyer is listed as Bloomington Hotel Owner SPE, which reportedly acquired the hotel from FelCor Lodging Trust. However, Texas-based hotel-management firm Aimbridge Hospitality said that it won the hotel's management contract from the new owner—actually San Diego hotel investor Chelsea Hospitality Partners.

This was all reported by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

The hotel is located at 2800 American Blvd. W., along Interstate 494 between France and Penn avenues. The property, built in 1979, includes 10,000 square feet of meeting space, indoor pool and fitness center.
