Everwood Hospitality Partners Acquires 263-Key Sheraton Suites Plantation for $24.66 Million From PHF Plantation LP

USA, Plantation, Florida. March 06, 2018

Officials of Everwood Hospitality Partners (EHP), a leading hotel owner/operator with a growing portfolio of full- and select-service hotels nationwide, have announced the company has acquired the 263-suite Sheraton Suites Plantation in the heart of Broward County, Fla.  The hotel was purchased for $24.66 million from PHF Plantation LP, an affiliate of San Francisco-based Fillmore Capital Partners.  Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, private hotel investment, ownership and management company, will operate the hotel.

“The Sheraton Suites Plantation benefits from its remarkable location surrounded by five higher education institutions, two hospitals, more than five million square feet of office space and the nearby Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport,” said Amit Patel, principal.  “Furthermore, the hotel will anchor the underway, $300-million redevelopment of the 37-acre former Plantation Fashion Mall, which includes 260,000 square feet of office, 230,000 square feet of retail, 700 multifamily units, a gourmet grocer, a health club, an entertainment center and a unique collection of restaurants and streetscapes.  We are confident the hotel will take its rightful place as the market leader.”

Located at 311 North University Drive in Plantation, Fla., each guest suite in the nine-story hotel is comprised of a separate sleeping and living area.  Hotel amenities include a heated, rooftop pool; Link@Sheraton, the brand's state-of-the-art business center providing computers, free WIFI and printing capabilities; a full-service fitness center; and shuttle service within a three-mile radius of the hotel.  Guests may enjoy dining at Cilantro's, a three-meal/day restaurant featuring continental cuisine, as well the Sheraton Club lounge on the eighth floor.  The hotel also features five meeting rooms totaling 13,900 square feet, including 7,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor prefunction space.

“In addition to its excellent location in the midst of numerous business and leisure demand generators, the hotel further profits from previous ownership's recently completed, $4.6-million renovation to upgrade suites and improve hurricane durability,” said Amit Govin, principal.  “In combination with our an additional, soon-to-commence $10 million-plus renovation, we plan to position this hotel as a market leader in the Plantation/Sunrise/West Fort Lauderdale market.  The hotel improvement plan will relocate the entrance to face the newly developed hardscaped motor court of the mixed-use development and will re-imagine the interior.  The end result will be a product that will complement the walkable neighborhood, home to a growing number of premium restaurants, bars and retail.  We continue to have an aggressive appetite for well-regarded hotel brands that can benefit from operational and/or financial investments in markets with barriers to new growth.  Particularly with an acquisition cost lower than replacement, the Sheraton Suites Plantation is an ideal addition to our nationwide portfolio.”

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
