Marcus & Millichap arranges metroplex hotel sale and financing

Marcus & Millichap announced the sale and financing of Courtyard by Marriott Dallas Grand Prairie, a four-story, 120-room hotel in Grand Prairie, Texas.

“Growing occupancy and average daily room rates throughout the Metroplex are drawing the attention of hospitality investors,” said Chris Gomes, senior managing director investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Dallas office. “The area’s strong economic growth, underscored by the large quantity of corporate move-ins during the pandemic, indicate a coming increase in business travel that bodes well for the hospitality industry overall.”

Gomes and Allan Miller in Marcus & Millichap’s Austin office represented the seller, Anderson Companies and procured the buyer, MCR Hotels. Pete Fehlman, managing director with Marcus & Millichap Capital Corporation in Dallas arranged acquisition financing.
