Wheelock Street Capital Acquires the 297-room
Hilton Houston Westchase in Texas

GREENWICH, Conn.- January 8, 2013 --Wheelock Street Capital announced today that an affiliate of Wheelock Street acquired the Hilton Houston Westchase Hotel located in Houston, TX within the Westchase District of Houston.

On December 17th, Wheelock Street acquired the Hilton Houston Westchase from an affiliate of Interstate Hotels & Resorts. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Hilton Westchase opened in 1980 and features 297 guestrooms, 11,200 square feet of meeting space and the Rio Ranch Restaurant. The hotel is located on Westheimer Road, in the middle of the Westchase District, a submarket with over 18 million square feet of office space. The Westchase District comprises over 1,500 businesses, including major employers such as Chevron, Dow Chemical, Halliburton, Jacobs Engineering, MI Swaco, BMC Software, and ABB. Phillips 66 recently announced that it will build its new global headquarters on a 14-acre parcel of land located one mile west of the Hilton Houston Westchase. Interstate Hotels & Resorts, one of the nation's leading independent hotel management companies, will continue to manage the hotel on behalf of Wheelock.

“The Hilton Houston Westchase represents our sixth full-service hotel acquisition in 2012 and our second in the Houston market,” said Patrick Campbell, a Principal of Wheelock Street Capital. “Upon completion of a planned property renovation, the Hilton Westchase will be well positioned to benefit from tremendous ongoing economic growth in Houston created by the expanding energy industry.”
