Newport Beach, CA - December 11, 2013 -- Maxim Hotel Brokerage is pleased to announce the sale of the 802-room Sheraton Gateway LAX Hotel on Century Boulevard.  The property was sold off-market for $96 million by an affiliate of Long Wharf Real Estate Partners.  The buyer, Hazens Real Estate Group is among the largest private real estate developers in China, and this acquisition marks their first transaction in the United States.  According to Harry Pflueger, Principal with Maxim Hotel Brokerage, "This buyer could have purchased any hotel for sale in Los Angeles, but they selected the Sheraton due to the strength of the market, upside to improve rate through renovation and repositioning, and central location proximate to the airport and Los Angeles' numerous attractions."

Built in 1980, the Sheraton Gateway LAX is a Class-A, 802-room, 15-story high-rise structure.  With close to 50,000 square feet of meeting space and one of the best locations on Century Boulevard, the hotel will be able to improve its position in the market following a comprehensive renovation to the entire property.  The hotel will remain affiliated with the Sheraton brand and Pyramid Hotel Group will continue to manage the hotel.
