This Week's Chicago Deal Sheet

Hospitality real estate investor Arbor Lodging Partners is based out of Chicago, but held no assets in the market. Until now.

Arbor partnered with Middleton Partners to acquire the 398-room Marriott Schaumburg hotel from Investcorp U.S. Real Estate for $35.5M. It is the largest single-asset hotel transaction in Schaumburg since Investcorp bought the hotel for $51M in 2007.

Marriott Schaumburg Hotel, Schaumburg, Illinois
Arbor Lodging Partners is planning a massive update of the Marriott Schaumburg hotel.

Suburban hotels have been slow to recover to their pre-recession highs, but the Marriott Schaumburg is performing on par with comparable hotels in the submarket, and Arbor Lodging CEO Vamsi Bonthala said he believes the market fundamentals are favorable to turn around the property.

Arbor Lodging is planning a massive renovation of the hotel, including upgrading common areas, food and beverage service, introducing Marriott's M Club Lounge for elite members, and modernizing conference and meeting space.
