“This was an opportunity for us to acquire a well-positioned asset with a world class brand in a very strong sub market of San Diego, Mission Valley,” Phillip Nahas, a managing partner with Oak Coast, told U-T San Diego. “San Diego’s economy and tourism, and this location, coupled with our renovation plans, make it an ideal investment for us.”

He said Oak Coast has plans to renovate hotel, including guestrooms and public spaces.

Portfolio Hotels & Resorts will manage the property, which sold for about $224,000 on a key-per basis—a fair price noted Orange County hotel analyst Alan Reay.
