Davidson Hotels & Resorts Tapped to Manage Two Peoria Marriott Hotels
Award-winning hospitality management company, Davidson Hotels & Resorts, has been tapped by National Real Estate Advisors, LLC (National) to manage the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette and Courtyard by Marriott Peoria Downtown. Situated in the business and entertainment district of downtown Peoria, Ill., the hotels are within walking distance of Caterpillar World Headquarters, OSF, Unity Point Methodist Hospitals, Peoria Civic Center and the celebrated Peoria RiverFront.
With new management oversight, the historic Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette will undergo a renovation to refresh and modernize all guest rooms and public spaces, bringing the hotel in line with the latest global vision for Marriott Hotels. Davidson now operates seven hotels within the state of Illinois, reinforcing a robust Midwestern presence with existing properties in Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Ohio.
"We are privileged to be granted the opportunity to expand upon our partnership with National with the addition of these two distinctive hotels," said Davidson Hotels & Resorts President Thom Geshay. "Through our purposeful and relentless approach to operations, we look forward to creating and maximizing asset value for our partners while simultaneously delivering comfortable and enriching experiences for both business and leisure travelers."
"During an unprecedented time in our industry, it was imperative to identify a management solution with a dedicated focus on operational efficiencies, quality asset stewardship and a genuine caring for our guests," said Jeffrey Kanne, President and CEO of National. "Based on our current experience with Davidson, we are confident that the team will have a palpable impact on the financial success of both properties and the future is bright."
