In conjunction with the acquisitions, Summit will be executing new franchise agreements with the respective franchisors for the hotels and expects to spend approximately $13 to $16 million in capital improvements required under these agreements over the next two years.
“We are pleased to have entered into this agreement with Summit, as we strongly believe this to be a mutually beneficial strategic transaction,” said Marcel Verbaas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Xenia. “While these hotels fit well within Summit’s portfolio of quality, upscale hotels, the completion of this transaction and our recent acquisition of the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress represent a further refinement of our portfolio, consistent with our strategic focus on primarily owning luxury and upper upscale assets in top 25 lodging markets and key leisure destinations.”
The closing of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions and is expected to occur within the next 30 days.
