Following the recent opening of the Radisson Hotel Phoenix North, new hotels make a total of three Arizona properties for the San Diego-based hospitality management and consulting firm

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Mar. 13, 2015)– In partnership with PacVentures, San Diego hospitality management and consulting firm R.A. Rauch & Associates acquired two Arizona hotel properties in February 2015. Combined with the January opening of its reflagged Radisson Hotel Phoenix North, R.A. Rauch & Associates’ purchase of the Quality Inn & Suites Tucson Airport North and the Country Inn & Suites Deer Valley is quickly solidifying the firm’s status as a go-to for hotel expertise in the southwest region.

“I started my hospitality education and career in Arizona, so to me, it’s like coming home again,” says Robert Rauch, President & Founder of R.A. Rauch & Associates. “I’ve always maintained ties to the state through my Faculty Associate position at Arizona State University, and have been eager to ingrain my firm in the hospitality industry there. Arizona is increasingly strong in that vertical, and we look forward to contributing to further growth.”

“This hotel investment is an exciting first for us,” comments PacVentures CEO, Andrew Kaplan. “With a number of commercial and business properties already owned in Arizona, we feel we are well-positioned and prepared to move into the hospitality space with an excellent operator like R.A. Rauch & Associates.”

PacVentures, a commercial real estate investment firm also headquartered in San Diego, and R.A. Rauch & Associates will renovate both hotels beginning in May 2015. Still operational over the one-year construction project, the properties will undergo interior and exterior updates including new artwork, fresh paint and carpeting and tile repair.

Located less than three miles from Tucson International Airport, the 170-room Quality Inn & Suites offers convenient access to top local sights and attractions, such as the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park. The 126-room Country Inn & Suites in the North Phoenix town of Deer Valley is located close to key corporate headquarters of companies including Cox Communications, American Express and PetSmart, as well as the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Its nearby neighbor, the Radisson Hotel Phoenix North, also provides a perfect base camp for business and leisure travel, with all-new amenities ranging from a state-of-the-art fitness center, pool and onsite restaurant and the same ideal proximity to corporate destinations.
