Georgia-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts has joined forces with Silverpeak Real Estate Partners of New York to acquire the iconic 22-story Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis from Hyatt Hotels Corpn. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 499-room property, which ranks as the city’s fourth largest hotel, was built in 1977 and underwent a $20 million renovation in 2012.

Located at One S.

It is also connected to the PNC Center via an atrium and to the Indianapolis Convention Center, Lucas Oil Stadium, Circle Center Mall and the Arts Garden via climate controlled walkways.

Davidson, which will also operate the hotel, is planning to further upgrade the guest rooms, lobby, meeting space, as well as the food and beverage outlets. The property will be the ninth Hyatt-branded lodging facility the company has under its management.

“Davidson has enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Hyatt, and that familiarity will ensure a seamless transition of ownership and management,” John Belden, Davidson’s president and CEO, said in a prepared statement.

Davidson operates one of the highest quality portfolios in the industry. With 39 high-end properties under its management, the company is a trusted partner and a preferred operator for Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt and Starwood Family hotels.
