BC Lynd and CrossHarbor Capital Partners Acquire Six Marriott Hotels in the Midwest and Southwest

San Antonio, TX – November 20, 2013 – BC Lynd Hospitality, a full service hotel management and investment company, and CrossHarbor Capital Partners LLC, a seasoned investor in a variety of opportunistic and value-oriented commercial real estate transactions, have joined together to extend their respective national hospitality footprints with the acquisition of six Marriott-branded properties.

“We see a strong upside with the implementation of our business plan and management strategy, which coupled with CrossHarbor’s outstanding acumen in the real estate business provides an excellent platform for creating value in the hotel space,” said BC Lynd chief executive officer Brandon S. Raney.

The hotels add portfolio depth and advance the companies’ acquisition plans, said chief investment officer Clyde J.B. Johnson IV. “CrossHarbor and BC Lynd each operate on disciplined acquisition criteria and look forward to executing on future similar opportunities together.”

Bank of America N.A., in coordination with Holiday Fenoglio Fowler, provided an acquisition-and-improvement loan to finance the transaction.

“In partnership with BC Lynd we identified an off-market portfolio where the conditions exist to improve operating performance through professional management strategies and value added capital improvements,” said Eric S. Boyd, a Principal of CrossHarbor Capital Partners LLC. “These properties diversify our portfolio of twenty-four select and limited service hotel assets across the United States.”

The transaction included six (6) hotels carrying the TownePlace Suites, SpringHill Suites, and Fairfield Inn brands located across four Midwest and Southwest states. The purchase price was not disclosed.
