The property was acquired by Blu Kalorama Hotel, L.P. based in Santa Barbara, California

The buyer has a long track record in the acquisition and repositioning of hotel properties and plans to upgrade the hotel and utilize their management expertise to bring hotel operations in line with its Competitive Set. Washington, D.C. is one of the strongest performing lodging markets in the nation.

“We generated a tremendous amount of lender interest due to our client’s experience of demonstrating how a property like the Normandy Hotel is perfectly suited for a repositioning,” said Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Principal Elliot Eichner.
