USA, Birmingham, Alabama. November 12, 2021

Highline Hospitality Partners (HHP), the hospitality investment platform launched by Highline Real Estate Partners (HREP), has added its fourth property with the acquisition of the 970-room Kansas City Marriott Hotel Downtown in Missouri and tapped Aimbridge Hospitality, a leading global hospitality company, to manage the property.

Highline Hospitality Partners' team has over 60 years of combined experience across sourcing, purchasing, asset-managing, renovating, repositioning, and selling hospitality properties and has operated all classes of hotels.

"We are delighted to add the Kansas City Marriott Hotel Downtown to our expanding portfolio," said Highline Hospitality Partners' Managing Partner, Chuck Pomerantz. "With a strong conviction that convention business is coming back, and as one of the city's premiere locations for meetings and events, we are confident this property will find much continued success with our extensive experience combined with Aimbridge's unrivaled operating expertise."

Set in the vibrant downtown district, the Kansas City Marriott Hotel Downtown occupies a historic building, reflecting the charm and history of Kansas City. Visitors can walk to many of the area's prominent destinations, including the popular Kansas City Power & Light District, Kansas City Music Hall, and T-Mobile Center. Following a $40 million-dollar investment, the hotel was renovated in late 2019, and Highline plans additional innovative renovations to the public space and food and beverage outlets over the next 24 months. In addition, the property's redesigned guestrooms offer custom décor honoring Kansas City Blues and Jazz traditions.

Dining options include Metropolitan KC featuring American cuisine and BARCENTRAL, the perfect spot for lunch, happy hour or post-theater cocktails. The property offers an impressive 97,000 square feet of event and meeting space and 970 guestrooms. Additional amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, business center and complimentary WiFi.

To meet the needs of the expanding Kansas City metro area and the growing number of visitors and business travelers to the city, a new single terminal at Kansas City International Airport is set to open in 2023.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient


In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
