Hotel fund manager Phoenix American Hospitality has closed its $50 million Reg D offering, American Hospitality Properties Fund III. The fund has acquired 17 upper-midscale and upscale hotels in the United States.

Phoenix American created the fund to identify and acquire limited and upscale select-service hotels in the United States, specifically those that provide cash flow and value-added opportunities. The hotels it has bought are a mix of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Marriott International and Hilton brands.

“The closing of this fund is an important milestone for Phoenix American Hospitality and reflects on our team’s professional experience in investments and ability to produce results,” Perch Nelson, president/CEO, said in a statement. “We will continue to focus on acquisition and management opportunities to expand our ever-growing portfolio.”
