Two Fargo hotel sales brokered by Marcus & Millichap

Holiday Inn

Marcus & Millichap arranged the sale of a two-property hospitality property portfolio in Fargo. The assets are a Holiday Inn and a Holiday Inn Express that together total 387 rooms. The portfolio sold for $30 million, which equates to more than $77,500 per room.

“The Holiday Inn is one of only two nationally branded, full-service hotels in Fargo and it has the state’s premier conference center,” says Shane Skubis, a senior director of Marcus & Millichap’s National Hospitality Group. “The Holiday Inn Express, which is on the same site, was fully renovated in 2014, and commands a 120 percent RevPAR premium to its competitive set.”

Skubis represented the seller, a private equity group based in Los Angeles and procured the buyer, a Fargo-based private real estate investor. Craig Patterson is Marcus & Millichap’s broker of record in North Dakota.
