Rubicon Cos. acquired the 640-key Hacienda Hotel in 2013 from a private family that owned the property for 40 years. The property was then the 10th largest hotel in Los Angeles County. The company then completed $30 million renovations and converted the 300,000-square-foot property together with Klewin Construction into two different branded hotels: the Aloft by Starwood and Fairfield by Marriott. Another LAX mammoth hotel, the 580-key Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport, has also undergone extensive renovations recently.

HFF Managing Directors Tony Malk and Scott Hall led the investment sales team representing Rubicon Cos. in the disposal of the hotel portfolio.
