Solstar Investments' tandem buy outside of Las Vegas

Solstar Investments of Los Angeles has acquired the 120-room Marriott SpringHill Suites Hotel and the 108-room Marriott TownePlace Suites Hotel located in Henderson, Nev., outside Las Vegas. The 2009-built pair of hotels was acquired from Campbell Lodging, the original owner/developer, with GE Capital Franchise Finance providing the financing for the acquisition.

The purchase price was not disclosed.                 

“We are very excited about the acquisition of these two fine Marriott select service hotels,” said Steve Barklis of Solana Advisors, a partner in Solstar Investments. “The hotels are already doing well. With a change in management and completion of a new property improvement plan, we expect both hotels to significantly out-perform the market.”
