TAMPA, Fla./RALEIGH, N.C., September 24, 2012—Concord Hospitality Enterprises, one of the nation’s top-ranked hotel developer/owner/operators, today announced that it has taken over management of a three-hotel portfolio in Tampa, Fla., recently acquired by MIG Real Estate, a leading owner of commercial real estate. The hotels include the 100-room Residence Inn Tampa Suncoast Parkway at North Pointe Village, the 99-room Courtyard Tampa Oldsmar and the 78-room Residence Inn Tampa Oldsmar.
“We are pleased to once again engage Concord to manage properties for us,” said Greg Merage, CEO of MIG Real Estate. “Concord has proven itself to be an exceptional operator at our hotels in Phoenix and Edmonton, handling all aspects of the operations and improving performance. We look forward to furthering our relationship at these three Tampa properties.”
Concord owns and/or operates more than 60 Marriott-branded hotels nationwide across the US and Canada.
“MIG has an eye for sourcing quality assets in desirable markets,” said Mark Laport, CEO of Concord. “Tampa has year-round demand generators that make it a compelling market for us, and these hotels compete very effectively in their submarkets. We welcome the opportunity to expand our presence in the Tampa Bay area and appreciate MIG’s recognition that we already are there.”
