The hotel’s combination of its excellent location and first rate amenities, along with its growing cash flow, drew considerable attention from the investment community. We are pleased to have represented the seller in this deal, which also served as an opportunity for Hodges Ward Elliott to boost its already strong pipeline of activity in the Phoenix metro region,” Elliott said in a prepared statement.
