NEW YORK, NY. October 10, 2017 - MCR, the seventh largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, today announced the acquisition of two Marriott hotels located in Lehi, Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City. Both properties, the Courtyard Lehi and SpringHill Suites Lehi, are situated at the entrance to Thanksgiving Point, Lehi's central business and leisure hub, which is known for its technology businesses, museums, and numerous entertainment facilities. The properties were purchased for $27.5 million.

“We are very excited to make this investment in Salt Lake City's Silicon Slopes technology corridor,” said Tyler Morse, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of MCR. “Given the array of demand generators supported by the city's strong business climate and its highly educated workforce, we believe both properties are well positioned to outperform and generate positive returns for our business. These hotels represent an attractive combination of in-place yield with upside potential in the years to come.”

Lehi, situated between Provo and Salt Lake City, has more than doubled in size since 2000, and is home to a large cluster of technology companies including Adobe, Microsoft, Oracle, Ancestry.com, and others. Lehi is also home to major government facilities, including the NSA's 1.5 million square foot Utah Data Center. Year-over year growth for the City in 2016 was 4.6 percent, and Adobe is currently in the midst of expanding its Lehi campus, which will add approximately 1,260 new jobs.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
