Glenmont Acquires Radisson Hotel Cleveland-Gateway to Be Rebranded as Hotel Indigo Following Comprehensive $7 Million Renovation

USA, New York City, New York. April 08, 2019

Glenmont Capital Management, LLC, founded in 2000 by Lawrence A. Kestin, a New York-based real estate private equity fund manager announced the off-market acquisition of the Radisson Hotel Cleveland-Gateway. The 143 key hotel features a business center, fitness center, approximately 3,500SF of meeting space and the Gateway Bar and Grill. The hotel, located at 651 Huron Road, benefits from an A+ location, ideally situated among the Cleveland CBD's 14.9 million square feet and is the closest accommodation to both Quicken Loans Arena and Progressive Field.

The Hotel will initially operate under the Intercontinental Hotel Group system and under the name Hotel Cleveland Gateway, and will undergo a comprehensive $7 million renovation, including guest rooms, meeting space and public areas. Upon completion, the hotel will be rebranded and repositioned as a Hotel Indigo, an upper upscale branded boutique within the IHG system.

"We continue to believe there exists today compelling select development, redevelopment and repositioning opportunities in US markets" said Mr. Kestin. "The combination of inherent investment factors, including a favorable per key purchase price, the irreplaceable A+ location in the center of Downtown Cleveland and our rebranding and repositioning strategy, presented a compelling investment opportunity rarely found in today's markets."

The hotel will be managed by Pyramid Hotel Group with which Glenmont has enjoyed a long-term relationship.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
