Gardere Represents Buyer in Pier House Resort Acquisition


PR Newswire covered the announcement of Ashford Hospitality Trust in its $90 million acquisition of Pier House Resort and Caribbean Spa, a 142-room resort located in Key West, Florida. The company is currently in the market evaluating property level debt financing for the acquisition. The Pier House Resort will be managed by Remington Lodging, now managing four hotels in Key West.

"The Pier House Resort acquisition demonstrates our ability to add a high RevPAR hotel to our portfolio in an attractive market," said Monty J. Bennett, Ashford's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said. "Given the Pier House's prime location in Key West and difficulty adding rooms in that area due to the local Rate of Growth Ordinance or 'ROGO', this hotel presented a compelling investment opportunity."

Gardere Real Estate Partner Cynthia Nelson and Bankruptcy and Business Reorganization Partner Deirdre B. Ruckman represented Ashford Hospitality Trust.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
