Starwood Capital Group said that it plans to refurbish the assets and that the portfolio will be managed by Kew Green Hotels under a franchise agreement with Hilton.

This marks the second acquisition where Starwood Capital Group and Kew Green have partnered in the last year, following the successful acquisition of the Holiday Inn in Manchester, UK, last April.

“We are acquiring this well-located portfolio at a substantial discount to replacement cost and with significant upside potential still to be realised,” said Jon Asumendi, vice president at Starwood Capital Group.

Jamie Lamb, executive chairman of Kew Green Group, added: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Starwood Capital Group for a second time to unlock opportunities in the portfolio.”
