JRK Hotel Group Growing Management Platform
Los Angeles, April 26, 2011- JRK Hotel Group, with properties located in New York City, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Nashville, is evolving their current platform to include 3rd party management contracts. JRK’s success is a combined formula of leading markets in RevPAR through revenue management, sales, and customer service, while also driving NOI growth through aggressive expense controls. The hotel group is now seeking to manage additional flagged or independent properties to continue to add to their current collection, which includes: Oceana Santa Monica & Santa Barbara, Hotel Roger Williams in New York, and the nation’s largest Holiday Inn Express in Downtown Nashville. In October 2010, JRK took on their first management deal when they retained management during the sale of Hotel Roger Williams to La Salle Property Holdings.
“We have a proven management record of driving both top line and NOI growth over and above what other operators in the hotel management arena are doing,” said John Flannigan, President of JRK Hotels. “Taking on management deals is a natural progression for our company as we have always owned and operated properties with extremely high standards and this is another avenue to grow our hotel portfolio.”
While JRK’s current mission is to grow hotel management deals, the group will continue to focus on acquisitions or joint ventures in the top 25 hotel markets. JRK brings sixteen years of hotel ownership experience and with its creative and dynamic management team, is poised to grow its portfolio in 2011.
