Banyan Investment Group Acquires and Will Operate 110-Room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas

USA, Houston, Texas. July 17, 2019

Banyan Investment Group, an Inc. 5000 recognized hotel investment and management company that acquires and manages select-service hotels in the United States, today announced that it has acquired and will operate the 110-room Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland in Texas.

"We continue to seek institutional quality assets, such as the Courtyard by Marriott Houston Pearland, in major markets with numerous demand generators," said Andy Chopra, founding principal and chief investment officer, Banyan Investment Group. "The hotel benefits from its location within Pearland Town Center, a popular mixed-used development with 937,000 square feet of open space location within the South Houston marketplace that includes 140 specialty stores, 234-unit apartment complex building and more than 50,000 square feet of office space. The hotel requires minimal capital expenditures, and we are confident the property will achieve its economic objectives with immediate cash flow."

Situated in the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway Street in the "Energy Capital of the World," the five-story hotel is just 15 minutes from NRG Stadium (home of the NFL's Houston Texans) and within 20 minutes of the Texas Medical Center, downtown Houston and William P. Hobby International Airport. All guest rooms, which underwent a recent renovation in 2016, contain luxurious linens, pillow-top mattresses, complimentary high-speed Internet access, refrigerator work desk, 32-inch HDTV and microwave. The hotel also provides meeting space for up to 60 people, business center, 24/7 fitness center and outdoor pool. Guests are invited to dine at The Bistro, serving breakfast and dinner daily, or to pick up quick bites and coffee at the hotel Starbucks.

"Home to some of America's largest corporations, including Philips 66 and Sysco, Houston is well on its way to becoming the third largest city in the United States," Chopra added. "We appreciate the economic diversity provided by South Houston's submarkets, and Pearland particularly stood out due to its standing as the fastest growing suburb in one of the fastest growing MSAs in the country."

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
