The Firm Has Now Transacted the Three Largest Hotel and Resort Asset Sales in the State of Florida, by Dollar Volume, in the Last Twelve Months.

USA, Tampa, Florida. February 02, 2021

The Plasencia Group, a leading lodging investment advisory and consulting firm, represented Hobbs & Curry Family Limited Partnership in the sale of the 227-room Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the 139-key, 24-acre, Islander Resort in Islamorada, Florida. This transaction marks the firm's second in the Florida Keys in the last 100 days. The Plasencia Group has now transacted the three largest hotel and resort asset sales in the State of Florida, by dollar volume, in the last twelve months.

The two properties were purchased by a joint venture of Lubert-Adler Real Estate Funds and Hersha Hospitality Management, both based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Loci Capital, based in Tampa, Florida. Hersha Hospitality Management will operate both assets. A team of The Plasencia Group's principals, including Chief Executive Officer Lou Plasencia, Senior Managing Director Robert Wiemer, and Managing Directors Nick Plasencia and Chris Plasencia, represented the seller in facilitating the transactions.

"Completing complex transactions during the COVID-19 pandemic takes creativity and perseverance. We commend our client and the purchaser for their collaborative efforts while patiently navigating through this environment," said Chris Plasencia.

"The Hilton and Islander Resort have two entirely different location and demand profiles. This transaction is emblematic of the unprecedented investor interest in Florida lodging properties today, especially those on or near the coast," added Nick Plasencia. "The state's resilient economy and lodging outperformance has piqued the interest of sophisticated investors across the country looking to invest in assets just like these."

Over the past 100 days, The Plasencia Group has successfully completed more than $200 million in hotel and resort transactions to well-capitalized investors who are actively acquiring hotels as early movers in this part of the investment cycle. Additionally, the firm has successfully completed well over one hundred engagements in Florida, representing every brand family and asset type across each major market in the Sunshine State.

Guest Service: Health and Safety First

Though expectations are that hotels will return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021, their highest priority must continue to be the health and safety of guests and employees. To that end, hotels are training their guest service personnel in enhanced cleaning routines, which include the following practices - bathrooms, elevator buttons, remote controls and other high-touch items, are disinfected and cleaned with a higher frequency; all tables, chairs and menus in restaurants are cleaned at a much higher frequency, and after each seating; floor markers in public areas to remind guests and team members to maintain physical distance; hand alcohol stations and disposable gloves in lobbies and restaurants; loose items such as pens, note pads and information material removed from rooms and meeting rooms; limiting the number of seats in restaurants and public areas; and revised food & beverage offerings. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will review how guest service personnel are being trained to maintain health and safety protocols in their operations.
