We’ll Take Five! MCR Purchases a Handful of Marriott and Hilton Hotels for $94 Million

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–High five! MCR, the country’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator, has acquired a quintet of premium-branded hotels in Texas and Washington.

Totaling 674 rooms, the five hotels are situated in some of the highest growing metropolitan regions in the United States, including the aerospace hub of Renton, Washington (which has pumped out 14,500 Boeing airplanes!), Dallas’s Telecom Corridor and Houston’s Energy Corridor. The portfolio includes four Marriotts and one Hilton. MCR purchased the five hotels for $94 million.

Located directly across from Boeing’s one-million-square-foot Renton airplane assembly plant, where 737 jets are manufactured, the 146-room Residence Inn by Marriott Seattle South/Renton is just 20 minutes from downtown Seattle and 10 minutes from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and King County International Airport-Boeing Field. Built in 2019, the waterfront hotel features sweeping views of Lake Washington! The pet-friendly, extended stay property has feels-like-home amenities including free Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchens in every suite, a fitness center and an outdoor patio with a grill. Don’t feel like cooking? Start your day with a complimentary hot breakfast or pick up a snack from the on-site market. At night, relax at the Lobby Bar, which serves locally crafted Pacific Northwest beers and light bites.

In the Telecom Corridor, a 6.5-mile business strip on Route 75 in Richardson, Texas, the 132-room Courtyard by Marriott Dallas Plano/Richardson and the 129-suite Residence Inn by Marriott Dallas Plano/Richardson are just across from State Farm Insurance’s two-million-square-foot corporate campus at the 186-acre mixed-use development CityLine. The hotels are also within minutes of Blue Cross Blue Shield’s one-million-square-foot headquarters, AT&T, Verizon and 6,000 other companies. Just a half hour from downtown Dallas and 25 minutes from Dallas-Fort Worth Airport and Dallas Love Field Airport, both hotels — which are next door to one another — boast free Wi-Fi, an outdoor pool, a fitness center and a convenience store. The Courtyard has a Starbucks and an on-site restaurant, while the extended stay Residence Inn offers kitchens in every suite and a patio for barbecues!
