Operator and Brand Relationships

While the majority of our properties are brand managed, we have negotiated flexibility to convert brand and /or management for a limited number of properties over the years. Brand managed is generally the preferred management option for larger, group-focused assets. We continue to evaluate third-party alternatives within our portfolio based on asset size, type and market. To date, we have 17 hotels managed by various third party operators in our consolidated and joint venture portfolio.

Better As Brand Managed

Due to the larger, more group focused size of our portfolio, the majority of our assets benefit from brand management.


Opportunities to Franchise

For our smaller, more transient-focused hotels, we have negotiated or will continue to negotiate the ability to either franchise outright or gain the flexibility to franchise upon sale.
