McKibbon Hotel Management to Manage Seven
Hotels for Wheelock Street Capital

(TAMPA, FL –09/19/12) McKibbon Hotel Management, Inc. of Tampa, Florida has announced the addition of seven hotels to its portfolio. The properties are owned by Wheelock Street Capital, a private real estate investment firm based in Greenwich, Connecticut and Boston, Massachusetts. The new portfolio includes Hampton Inn Atlanta-Perimeter Center, Georgia; Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta North/Alpharetta, Georgia; Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh/Cary, North Carolina; Homewood Suites Raleigh-Crabtree Valley, North Carolina; Hampton Inn Charlotte-University Place, North Carolina; Comfort Inn Fort Bragg, North Carolina; and Holiday Inn Express Clearwater East-Icot Center, Florida.

The addition of the Wheelock portfolio follows another management contract signed earlier in the year with a private Georgia-based investment group, which added four more hotels, including the Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale/Plantation, Florida; Hyatt Place Atlanta/Duluth/Johns Creek, Georgia; Hyatt Place Rogers/Bentonville, Arkansas; and Hilton Garden Inn Beaufort, South Carolina.

“Bringing these hotels into our portfolio is an exciting opportunity for our company,” explained President/CEO Vann Herring, “The geographic location, size of the hotels and brand affiliations are very much aligned with McKibbon’s strengths and operating efficiencies.  Welcoming Hyatt, Comfort Inn and Holiday Inn Express into our family of brands and expanding our geographic footprint will present many new opportunities for the company as we move forward and continue our growth pattern.”

The addition of these seven hotels welcomes nearly 230 new associates to the McKibbon family, and increases McKibbon’s portfolio to 74 hotels in 8 states throughout the Southeast.
