Waterford, CT (January 16, 2015) --- FAC-W Markham, LLC, a partnership of affiliates of Fifth Avenue Capital and Waterford Hotel Group, has finalized the purchase of the 288-room DoubleTree by Hilton in Little Rock, Arkansas. Fifth Avenue Capital is a New York City based private equity investment firm that is led by the principals of Pearson Partners, Inc. Waterford Hotel Group, a Connecticut based company with nearly 30 years of experience operating hotels and convention centers nationwide, has assumed management of the DoubleTree Little Rock.
The hotel is the first acquisition for the venture and marks Fifth Avenue Capital’s first hotel investment. David Pearson, a principal of Fifth Avenue Capital shared, “While we have historically invested in retail and office properties, we have been seeking quality value-add hotel investments with a strong operating partner. In the Little Rock DoubleTree and the Waterford Hotel Group, we have found both.”
The DoubleTree by Hilton in historic downtown Little Rock is located just off I-30 in the heart of Arkansas’ capital city. The hotel features 288 rooms, the Plaza Grille and Bar, flexible banquet, catering, and meeting space, a business center, and an outdoor swimming pool. DoubleTree Little Rock is connected to Arkansas’ Premier Performing Arts Venue, the Robinson Center, which is currently closed for a multi-million dollar renovation and scheduled to reopen in Fall 2016. The hotel is conveniently located only minutes from the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport and in close proximity to the leading Little Rock attractions, such as the Statehouse Convention Center, William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library, Verizon Arena, Little Rock’s Government and State Offices, the shopping district, and much more.
The new ownership has also announced that plans are currently underway for a more than $5 million renovation of the DoubleTree Little Rock. “The DoubleTree enjoys a prime location in the heart of historic Little Rock. We are busy planning for an extensive renovation with a focus on enhancing guest experience for those visiting the downtown area for business or leisure travel, as well as for the local community visiting the many area attractions,” said Rob Winchester, President and COO of Waterford Hotel Group.
