Molinaro Koger Structures Sale of Two
Residence Inns Portland, Oregon

 
McLean, VA – February 22, 2005 – Molinaro Koger announced today that they brokered the sale of two Residence Inns located in metro-Portland, Oregon, on behalf of  Innkeepers USA Trust (NYSE: KPA) based in Palm Beach, Florida. The two hotels, with a total of 232 rooms, were purchased by CSM Lodging. Minneapolis-based CSM Lodging, which has a strong presence in the Pacific Northwest, will manage the hotels.

“Portland’s position as one of the nation’s tightest housing markets serves to drive high occupancy and rate at each of these upscale extended stay properties. As a result, we were able to generate competitive bidding for the Residence Inns and benefit our client and their shareholders,” commented John Jameson, Managing Director of Molinaro Koger’s Chicago office, who structured the sale.

The recently renovated Residence Inn Portland South, located in Lake Oswego, Oregon, has 112 suites designed primarily for extended-stay business travelers. The 120 suite Residence Inn Portland North/Vancouver, located 10 minutes from Portland International Airport, has 120 suites. Each suite has a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker, along with a separate living room area and a fireplace in select rooms. CSM Lodging will provide technology updates to each hotel in the next year to satisfy the growing needs of business travelers. A more extensive renovation will take place at the Residence Inn Portland North/Vancouver, including refurbishing all guest rooms and improving the public areas of the hotel.
