CRESCENT TAKES WESTIN
ON SAN ANTONIO RIVERWALK
Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate LLC used its investment fund, GP Invitation Fund II, to acquire The Westin Riverwalk, a 473-room hotel on the famed Riverwalk in San Antonio.
The AAA Four Diamond hotel is part of the Marriott Rewards system and has 65 suites and more than 26,000 square feet of meeting space, including a 5,900-square-foot ballroom.
Crescent has engaged HEI Hotels & Resorts, a nationally recognized hotel management firm that manages luxury and full-service hotels, including 20 other Westin brand hotels.
“This investment is a rare opportunity to purchase a best-in-market, recently renovated hotel with many remaining growth opportunities,” said Jason Anderson, co-CEO of Crescent.
The hotel underwent a comprehensive renovation completed at the end of the first quarter of 2019 encompassing guest rooms, public areas, meeting space, balconies and restaurant/bar facilities. Since 2017, the hotel has received $15.4 million of capital improvements. Crescent plans to upgrade elevators, corridors and bathrooms.
