NEW YORK / MAY 29, 2018 Pop the Champaign! MCR, the seventh largest hotel owner-operator in the United States, has acquired three Hilton-branded hotels in Champaign, Illinois. The all-star lineup — a Home2 Suites by Hilton, a Hilton Garden Inn and a Homewood Suites by Hilton — is steps from the 44,000-student University of Illinois campus and the newly renovated State Farm Center arena, home of the Fighting Illini Women’s and Men’s Basketball teams.

A slam-dunk for sports fans, Champaign, Illinois is also a bustling business region thanks to the Carle Foundation Hospital and the corporate offices of Jimmy John’s, Wolfram Research and Yahoo!

“These three well-located Hilton-branded properties are positioned to benefit significantly from the University of Illinois’ continued growth and are expected to produce attractive returns for our investors,” says Tyler Morse, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of MCR. “The acquisition continues our investment strategy of purchasing premium-branded select service and extended stay hotels with operations upside.”
